Arkane's new Prey game looks quite interesting, and I have a feeling it melds some distinct psychological horror-weirdness with old-school first-person shooter action. That sounds like quite a formula, and Arkane is pretty impressed with what they've built.
In fact, Arkane's Lead System Designer Seth Shain says Prey is quite mind-boggling. "The sheer audacity of what we have dared to build in this game, it's a little bit mind-boggling to me," Shain said in a recent interview with GameTM magazine. "The fact that we were able to stuff it all into this package called Prey is kind of amazing; it's a testament to the team and the passion of the developers we have here. Everybody shared in this vision and really wanted to see this thing through the end."
Considering Prey looks to be a cerebral game that has you second-guessing your very identity, the term "mind-boggling" certainly seems apt. From what I've seen, the game looks to be a mix of Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits' sci-fi bizarreness infused with Dead Space's survival horror, all wrapped up neatly in some DIY-style improvised FPS action straight out of an old-school PC shooter.
