We got a bit of specifics about what is Gigantic. It’s a 5vs5 multiplayer. Each team has a Guardian that they need to protect. The first team to kill the other team’s Guardian is the winning team. It’s a mix between a moba and a shooter.

Thom Glunt, Direct at Pixel Titans, and Stephen Raney, Programmer at Pixel Titans, showed a Demo for Strafe is a shooter where every monster has a different behavior. Each zone has 40-50 rooms, each room is filled with entrances, exits and secrets, and everytime you play the geometry is different.

Guild Halls is a mapowned by the Jungle Dragon and the guild needs to fight their way in the jungle to capture the map. Once they’ve claimed it they can decorate the hall and unlock new features with Guild Buildings. For example, they can make a workshop where a member will be able to work there to create new weapons that guild members will be able to use on mission outside the Guild Hall. They can make an arena in which the guild can brawl together or invite another guild to brawl. They can even make guild teams and send them to compete in a PVP arena to win a spot on the leader boards.

Sherida Halatoe, Creative Director at tiger&squid, talked a bit more about Beyond Eyes. She said the world is completely white unless you use your senses to see what’s around. Although using only one sense can be deceiving, because she could hear something and think it’s water, but when she get’s close and smells she realises it’s actually a sewer drainage.

Ian Thoomas, Gameplay Programmer at Frictionnal Games, showed Soma their new horror game. It’s set deep under the sea and you seemed to be with someone else because we were hearing a woman’s voice.
