  Apex Games Ltd getting ready to finish up Demon Core
  Share on Twitter Share on Facebook RSS

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Apex Games Ltd is a Finnish game development studio, who have been hard at work with their first title, Demon Core. The game is a single-player, story driven first person shooter, a refreshing change of pace among the multiplayer dominated genre. The development process is still going on but the team is ready to make the final push to finish and polish the game to uphold all new standards among indie games.

Demon Core is situated in a Russian research laboratory, working on solutions for potent sources of energy. The female protagonist of the game, a scientist working in the said laboratory, is faced with a dire situation and is forced to use all possible means she has to survive the overwhelming attack set upon the lab. The innovative gameplay elements allow you to blend in among the other victims, even feign death over other who have already fallen in the battle. Use the tools you have available to set up traps, sneak around your enemies and start working on them from the top of the chain; the enemy squads follow a chain of command, which allows you to target a commanding officer or a radio operator, sending the squad into disarray and cutting off any calls for back-up. Various types of soldiers with different equipment, experience in battle and even different personalities make sure to keep the gameplay versatile, with elite soldiers raining led down on the player in all circumstances and the more feeble grunts breaking off in a panic at the sight of fellow soldiers falling in battle.

Using this type of artificial intelligence is meant to give the player an immersive experience, where they can perceive the actual chain of commands and plan their actions accordingly. But AI isn’t the only thing that we’ve been working on. We’ve set ourselves a goal of creating stunning visuals and environments, likes that haven’t been seen before in an indie game. The game supports TrackIR and Microsoft Kinect, which links the actual movement of the player in three-dimensional space to the in-game view. We have made plans of making an extensive implementation of the game for Oculus Rift as well.

Demon Core is estimated to be released in Q4 2014. for PC and Mac. For further information please see We’re also launching an Indiegogo campaign to make sure we can make the game as good as we want! More information on this to follow in the next few weeks.
