So what has Mark Kern’s Em-8ER been up to these past couple of months? The team shared the latest news about the giant mech fighting game in a maiden video update, starting with the word that Kern had signed on former Firefall composer Michael Bross to create the score for this game as well. We even got a quick listen of what it sounds like.
The team is hard at work on a “vertical slice” (read “demo”) that involves a Thumper encounter in which a mining mech has to fight off waves of enemies on a planetary surface. A lot of attention is being given to the movement — the running, jet packs, and gliding — of the omniframe. Both human male and females are being created to sit inside the mech, although players won’t be able to jump out of the vehicle to run around (at least for the time being).
