Press Play, the Denmark-based game development studio owned by Microsoft, is looking to get help from the gaming community to help them pick their next game project. The studio has three concepts that the public can check out, and they can provide feedback on each project and vote for their favorite.
Press Play, which has created games for the Xbox One and other platforms such as Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Kalimba, has posted artwork, descriptions and video teasers for all three concepts
"An action-packed first person co-op game, set in a dark fantasy world. Team up with a group of friends and become a band of legendary dwarven treasure hunters, exploring a procedurally generated underworld filled with gold and monstrosities. As dwarves, you are experts in underground survival and have the tools to overcome any obstacle in your way – be they bottomless pits, insurmountable walls, collapsed mines, flooded tunnels…or deadly monsters."
"A physics-based multiplayer construction game set in an open world. Imagine a game where you could play as an inventor who had the ability to construct any kind of vehicle. A game where in your inventions you could travel far and wide and bring back new parts and valuable items. Imagine the inventions were all subject to the laws of physics; if they collided with objects or the ground, they would split into a thousand pieces. Imagine a game world where new places were regularly discovered and ready to be explored. Imagine your friends were there too."
"Project Knoxville is a 3rd person multiplayer action-survival game in which players MUST work both together and against each other. It is framed in a sadistic game show, similar to the ones in 'The Hunger Games' and 'The Running Man', but here all of the contestants can survive if they work together and don't let greed or personal gain get the best of them. With this game, we aim to go further than anyone else when it comes to dynamic relationships and spectator interaction."
Votes for the Press Play game concepts will be taken until September 1 and the winning concept will be revealed on September 4. After that, the community will continue to help provide feedback to Press Play to help them develop the game. The idea of having the general public offer feedback on game development is already being used by Game Troopers in their recently announced contest. In the meantime, which concept is your favorite and why? Let us know in the comments!
