Sound like a poor mans dead trigger (if that even possible!).

New article about the game over at Penny Arcade named "How a classic Counter-Strike map led to the innovative controls of the iOS title The Drowning"
It's a good read if you are interested in this game

From Unity3d:
"The game seems to be a collaboration between ,Unity, DeNA and the new Ngmoco studio Scattered Entertainment"
There will be some stunning visuals that's for sure,i hope they get atmosphere right.

There are new bits of information in the newest edition of game informer as well. They talk about multiplayer and it will be a lot like IB II. You'll enlist the help of other players against bosses, doing a cumulative amount of damage to it in an asynchronous manner.

So it`s another Infinity Blade Clone? Sometimes I just wanna puke when I see how much stagnation we currently have if it comes to new Games that use the Unreal Engine.

Really wondering on this one. But we must keep note that good graphics don't account for crappy gameplay. With this I feel it has a "linear" style of gameplay. Although if its major freemium ill instapass.
