i think this game is fucking awesome and much closer to what i expected outta doom 3

multiplayer support is coming down the line
Yeah, "alternate reality Doom sequel" is very much the specific vibe they have going here, and they nailed it.

I played a few hours of the beta (backed it on KS) and now I am trying to hold off on early access until it's more complete. What's the current state of it?

Great OT, man!

I was apprehensive about Prodeus gameplay since the first video I saw. The art style is too cool so I would be heartbroken if the gameplay wasn't good. Fortunately every impression I read is very positive! Can't wait until it leaves early access to buy it.

KirkCollects made an informative preview video about it:

Hope this comes to switch.
Probably, a few of these Boomer Shooters have come to Switch, more than have been released in what was once the FPS console, the XBOX, just saying, DUSK and Amid Evil are on Switch and PC only, so for now it seems that if any console will get a Boomer Shooter, it's the Switch.

Yeah i wouldnt hold my breath for a Switch port, the game is a lot more demanding than it looks. On my 980ti (with an overclock), the game uses 60-80% gpu usage at 1080p/60.
Its more demanding than Doom 2016, and even Eternal thinking about it lol.

Looks amazing.

Already picked up a bunch of stuff due to the various sales and I don't really buy early access stuff, but it's definitely going on the wishlist!

I love oldschool shooters, but one thing I never understood was why they are forcing that low-fi pixelation. I mean you could have it as an option for nostalgics, but why force it. I personally cant stand it, time advanced and so did the graphics. I like oldschool shooters because of the gameplay not how they looked.

Maybe its the fact that I didnt grow up with doom and quake 3 and I started a bit later with the likes of Serious Sam 1, Medal of Honor Allied Assault and Return to Castle Wolfenstein, but I really dont get the forced low-fi. Its why I love Doom 2016 and it has become one of my favorite FPS games ever.

Cut my left mouse-click finger and have it bandaged, making it really hard to play an fps like this. :(

Alternatively, I could remove the bandage and bleed all over the mouse, which, based on how gory the game's visuals are, is probably the preferred way to play.

I thought I saw an option to adjust the pixelation in an earlier video.

Edit: Yep - watch @2:31:

It's also selling on GOG


The game is good and I hate most of 1st person shooters. Except the old school type like this one.

you have a option to turn off the pixelation in this game so you can enjoy in 3D instead.
