Forums - Gaming Discussion - Bioshock creator's new game to be inspired by Dark Souls, System Shock, Civilization, Shadow of Mordor, Dying Light

- Bioshock creator Ken Levine spoke during a Take This charity live stream about his upcoming game

- his new game will be a first person shooter,a small-scale open world with an intention of making it have high replay value

- when asked, he said his game was inspired in part by Dark Souls, System Shock, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Civilization, and Dying Ligh, but the manner of those influences are not clear, as his project is not to resemble any of those games and be more in line with his previous games

- his game will be a science fiction game, he said on the themes of the game:

"I'm so deeply involved in the themes of our new thing, our new game is a science-fiction game,"

"It involves themes like artificial intelligence and what it means to be programmed, that you are a thing that was created by programming."

Looking forward to how it pans out though I can't say I'm overly fond of that DS inspiration, I don't really want him to craft a game that panders only to a balls to the wall crowd or insta/perma deaths or nothing type, the other inspirations I'm totally on board with.



                                       

Sounds like a weird combination of influences?



"Did we throw enough big game's names out there to make our project popular? What if we also said TLOU? Will that help? Ok, inspired by TLOU! Please be excited!"



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Could be. Maybe they need to promote a small title by association. Maybe we will be able to identify those elements in the game. Wait and see situation here.

A Frenkenstein of a game. Chances it will be just a feature here and there that they use. Maybe the gameplay of one, the feel of the other, some features from the others here and there.
