Faith and a .45... get ready
Developers from Total Overdose and Deadline Games have announced their new next-gen shooter titled Faith and a .45. The game is going to be a take on the Great Depression in the United States while offering a storyline to rival Bonnie and Clyde.
Deadline says the game is a "gritty, cross-country epic" featuring a "heavy focus on characters, co-operative gameplay, road movie storytelling, and cinematic aesthetics." Deadline also included, "…two outlaw lovers destined to go down in history, Luke and Ruby, who will battle an oppressive enemy force, led by a ruthless, corrupt oilman whose out for their blood."
As expected, not much else has been released for the title and both studios are awaiting GDC in order to push this game towards publishers from all over, as will most studios come that time. Deadline Games is a studio known to have its roots in the Hollywood scene and have commented that they understand the importance of a unique storyline in the videogame world.
With a tornado of shooters already on the market and a flurry of them to come, we can only hope that the uniqueness of this title gives us something to look forward to. With the history of both of these developers being pretty solid, we can only hope for the best.
