Aspyr Announces Dreamkiller

Aspyr and Mindware Studios today announced Dreamkiller, a " fast, frantic and mega bloodbath first person shooter" that "takes gamers inside the dark and twisted nightmares of tortured souls possessed by unknown forces."

"Gamers will take on the role of Alice Drake, a psychologist with the extraordinary ability to enter the minds of her patients and combat the ravenous foes haunting their dreams. Utilizing a host of fantastic weapons and her own special abilities, Alice confronts our common demons only to discover an even deeper menace reigns within. The ultimate showdown becomes inevitable between that which would torment and she who will protect, and only one force will prevail amidst a variety of dreamscapes as varied and bizarre as the human mind itself."

"Dreamkiller features 12 rich levels of single-player gameplay each laced with swarms of hideous and disturbing enemies reflecting the mind’s infinite palette of fear. The onslaught continues with numerous multiplayer modes and a host of over-the-top weapons and supernatural abilities. Stay awake, Dreamkiller will be available this fall."

Judging by the screens released with today's announcement, the game certainly seems to be coming from some writer's warped and disturbed mind ... which by the way, we're more than okay with.

Check out the 5 accompanying release screens in the Dreamkiller screenshot gallery here.

I'm always up to try a game with a strong female lead. Don't get enough of them sometimes.

It can't be a serious retail game! It better not be.

Everything about it screams freeware shooting game on the computer -- I don't know about this.

The plot reminds me of the movie The Cell, with the whole "I'm a woman and I can enter people's minds" schtick, although this is more in depth and actually has action instead of endless dialogue and landscape panning.

If those are game play graphics they look quite crappy. That third picture looks like something straight ripped from Oblivion in The Arena or the Nightmare Quest. The picture with the four legged monster looks like a Silent Hill rip off. And the second pictures background looks like a horrible rendition of the scraps you cut off of a game. I can't judge the game b/c I've never played it, but seriously if that's what it's coming packed with it needs to get a bigger boom.

I think I'll get this when it comes out.

It's been a while since I've had a bit of wild, nonsensical fun in the form of a mindless FPS.
