Yesterday, independent developer Spearhead Games announced their plans to demo upcoming game “Project Cyber” with its first live playtest and tournament at PAX East. “Project Cyber” is a physic-based 3 vs 3 soccer-inspired battle game set in a steampunk universe.
In “Project Cyber,” players choose from a variety of characters each with their own unique skill set to assemble a 3 man team. These teams compete in a dystopian battle arena which dynamically changes as the game goes on. Various events such as earthquakes and gravity shifts can completely reconfigure the maps on the fly. These events aren’t completely random, though.
“Through ‘Project Cyber,’ we’re exploring the concept of e-sport spectators being able to affect the player experience like in a real live sport,”
said Malik Boukhira, co-founder of Spearhead Games. “At PAX we’ll be showing off new dynamic in-game events that, eventually, live-streaming viewers will be able to trigger with their votes! The possibilities for this technology are endless, and we’ll be soliciting more thoughts about it at the Unreal Engine Epic booth.”
Even if you don’t have the chance to make it to PAX East, you can still have influence on the game. The entire development process has been open to the public, and already over 50,000 players have requested Steam Keys to check out the new title and share their own feedback on the game progress.
