It’s a simple phrase, yet it sums up the premise behind developer Black Wing’s upcoming third-person shooter, Scivelation, surprisingly well. Right from the start, the narrative is flooded with complex themes of religion and belief, utopia and dystopia, post-apocalyptic confusion, and genetic and mechanical enhancement. But hold on, this is a cover-based, third-person shooter, right? I’d expect it to just let me shoot a few zealots in the face, not give players substance and depth.
