RocketWerkz has announced Living Dark, a “neo-noir adventure driven by a procedural narrative”, with a short teaser trailer.
RocketWerkz is the studio headed by Dean Hall, the original designer of DayZ, who left Bohemia Interactive to found the studio in 2014.
Living Dark comes from the brain of Rashad Redic, and while the teaser (entitled ‘Making Weather’) doesn’t show a lot, it captures a sense of tone very well.
The description below the game on the trailer’s YouTube page gives us a bit more to go on:
Welcome to Vox – a near-future city straining under tensions it can barely control…
Fight for friends, factions or your own future, but survive at all costs in a society where justice is only for the powerful.
Explore dense, diverse open environments in a myriad of playstyles. Forge critical bonds then confront demanding choices – against the darkness of the city, your decisions make all the difference.
So basically – near-future, there are some robots, and your decisions impact how things play out. It sounds good, then.
This is just the first of many trailers, with Redic promising that they’ll be releasing something new every day this week for us to check out.
