Jeffery of RoboAwesome gives his impressions of the now released demo for Interstellar Marines: Bullseye - a browser based FPS developed by Zero Point Software and built on the Unity engine.
full of awesomeness
Indeed it is good sir. RoboAwesome-ness.
I saw a dev diary of it once and the developers seemed very passionate about it. I think they even turned down cash when some publisher wanted them to turn the game into something else in exchange for funding. Plus I love the shark head monster enemy thing...
According to what I read it was planned for PC, PS3, and X360 release. Right now though it looks like its going to be PC only. I think Bullseye browser based thing and the next two slices as they say are just going to be browser based demos of what we can expect from the full game to come at some point later. Its great either way. Only developer so far to utilize browser as a demo platform. I think its very smart thing to do. The full game I believe is to be called Interstellar Marines: First Contact. Still unknown release, but it is what is on their list at the end of their timeline. http://www.interstellarmari... << Look at the end of the timeline. Plus they plan for this to be a trilogy I believe. So more will come after that as well.
Looks a lot like starship troopers. I hope it has multiplayer though.
Wow. Can't believe this is a browser game. The graphics are great.
wow i thought this game fell off the planet; I knew it back when it was just called Project IM. but it definitely is looking good, especially considering its browser game.
The only browser based FPS I've played is Quake Live. This definitely looks nifty.
Just WOW! I can't believe how good this is. Is the full game just like this, or can you walk around?
your supposed to be able to walk around in the full game. This is just a preview slice according the there front page. Apparently two more slices are coming I am sure one of them will have running and stuff.
Wow! Just tried it out and its fantastic. Very surprised at the quality especially considering this is just a preview! Will definitely be playing through it all and buying the game.
The best part of the browser based games is the removal of the hardware requirements. How many times have you had to fuss with the system configuration of every new game you buy for your PC? This approach could really be a revival for PC gaming - cloud computing. It looks and plays great even on my old Dell from 2001.
