A second trailer for promising superhero game, Awakened

Yesterday, many of us were jawing excitedly about Phosphor Games' potentially magnificent superhero game, Awakened. The concept trailer was pretty rough, so here's a second one. It's still in a very early, unpolished state, but it looks a lot better.

Awakened is still in need of a publisher, but hopefully the game has generated enough buzz that somebody's going to pick it up soon.

Batman music is epic! The concept is epic!
However, the execution looks decent at best so far. It's not nearly polished enough to warrant a trailer to get people excited. Right now, it looks like an Infamous wannabe that looks to fall flat.
Though I could be wrong.

That was pretty bland. The girl with the sword was kinda sick but yea it needs a lot more polish.

Is this an MMO title?

Regardless... though it is an early view of the mechanics of the game I have now put it on my radar. I don't think prototype nor infamous are comparable to this game. It appears to be more comparable to DC Universe maybe? With the hero creation and all.

I really liked how they must have taken que from 9/11 building destruction and debri cloud wave in the ending of the clip. Nice effect... (though the cloud should maybe hang in the air longer and thicker?).

I like the movement and how the characters are cinematic in their movements (of course this is a concept video). Could be very interesting if they ensure a good story and plot through out the game.

Yea I noticed that 9/11 bit lol. But have to say those animations were not fluid at all. Unless this IS an MMO. Then its actually pretty good. But it looks like just a sandbox.

I have been going back and finishing Saints Row... so maybe a bit of shine I am seeing on this game in comparison? ha

But the game DID look fun! The gameplay looked fun, the powers looked enjoyable, the AI characters seemed scripted well. (other then that crappy crowd scene)

The animations can definetly do for some improvement to add some fluidity but overall... I am still wanting to see more of this game.

According to Phosphor Games, its an "MMO for consoles".

Edit: Sorry about that. I just re-read one of their interviews and they called it "a high-end action adventure game for consoles."
They were only INSPIRED by an MMO. :O :O

Well that pretty much changes everything. Looks phenomenal for an MMO.
