Retro FPS Metroidvania EFFIGY Announced During Realms Deep
Correct me if I’m wrong, but there aren’t any FPS metroidvanias out there, right? An exploration based FPS where the maps are huge and interconnected? Well, soon there will be at least one. EFFIGY was revealed yesterday during Realms Deep. Created by Redact Games, who you may remember from the Pokemon Snap style Cellular Harvest, this latest retro FPS seems to be an innovative addition to an all too often stagnant genre.
EFFIGY takes place on a prison moon called Gehenna. After a prisoner insurrection, the moon now belongs to a violently militant cult who worship a deity known as the Umbral. Having been sent to investigate, you find yourself trapped. To survive you must explore the prison and figure out the mysterious ancient history of the Black Moon.
EFFIGY will be released in early access sometime in 2021. You can wishlist the game on Steam by clicking here. And be sure to follow development on their Twitter by clicking here.
