I didn't think this seemed John Carpenter like at all to be honest

I thought someone would have locked him down for a single player driven cinematic game that feels "film like" similar to how Uncharted captures films such as Indiana Jones or the Mummy.

Imagine a single player survival horror game similar to the Thing or an action adventure game similar to Big Trouble in Little China.

Escape from New York would make for a great game.

Exactly my thoughts, like maybe he helped with the script? but nothing about anything else is even remotely John Carpenter.

If that’s all it was I’d still welcome it. He’s the director of yore that didn’t care about any of the trivial modern crap. He made toxic characters by todays standards lol. Like they live hobo piper, one of my favorite characters ever. He just tells fun stories with good music.

I understand why they played Van Halen or whatever because it’s a recognizable song from his era. Hopefully that means he will be creating the score as well.

Duct tape John Carpenter's name to the front of an FPS and ship it out...

hotnickles177d ago

Carpenter movies are some of my favs. He’s a hell of a composer as well. I would love to see how involved he is with these. I’d welcome him fully into the game space.

looks very boring and typical of games like it. maybe it will be fun despite that still I'm not seeing what makes this John Carpenter...

The title of this game should be: "A Generic FPS with a Cool Name."

Somehow it looks likes fun. Although, the game mechanics are looking too call of duty
