Project Awakened is the third-person action game from Phosphor Games Studio that asks the big question, “Who do you want to be?” The team has responded with an incredible Unreal Engine 4-powered character customisation mechanic. You can see it in action below.

The game is the spiritual successor to Midway’s Hero, and it is being built in Unreal Engine 4.

Phosphor’s Kickstarter campaign currently sits at $204,908 raised of the team’s $500,000 goal. There are five days to spare.

Project Awakened places big emphasis on character customisation, changing your character’s anatomy in many weird and wonderful ways, thanks to Unreal Engine 4. Get a taster of what’s possible in the clip below.
