One of the uplifting victories for the genre in 2019 was the fact that a couple of unorthodox titles were pretty successful in their Kickstarter campaigns. One of these, Zenith, raised $280,000 for a game that themed itself around a cyberpunk setting and utilized virtual reality (although the VR component won’t be mandatory to play).
We’ve been waiting to see what would come out of this small dev team since the Kickstarter, which is why we’re glad to take in the first developer video about Zenith’s future. The team is getting ready to invite a very few people in to playtest early builds and has grown to six full-time members (including one former dev who worked on Amazon’s Lumberyard tech).
As for the game itself, Zenith is laying the groundwork for pre-alpha with its ability system, A.I. for enemy mobs, a dynamic spawning system, and a half-kilometer Japanese-inspired playspace. Give it a watch below!
