Jonathan Chey, one of the brilliant minds responsible System Shock 2, is behind Void Bastards. That’s a huge deal for many people, myself included. Someone with that sort of development mind created a first-person shooter roguelike? Count me in!
Even without a name like Jonathan Chey behind this project, just looking at the game in screenshots or video sells it 100%. I first saw Void Bastards courtesy of some retweeted video that instantly caught my intention. But names and visuals only go so far, the game is going to have to actually play well in order to make an impression.
