Facepunch shows off gorgeous trailer for Before

Before
Audio player loading…

Well, this is gorgeous. Even if all that evocative wailing initially reminded me of the start of The Exorcist when Father Merrin finds that relic in Iraq that looks like the demon Pazuzu. (But I digress.) This game is called Before, and it's the next project set to come out of Facepunch Studios, the developer best known for Garry's Mod and Rust.

Bill Lowe, whose talents were acquired along with the game by Facepunch this September, presented the trailer for the caveman-'em-up at The Game Awards in Vegas. You can find out more about the making of the game on the team's dev blog here. It's definitely one to watch on the basis of this footage. Because, hey, adorable mammoths.

With over two decades covering videogames, Tim has been there from the beginning. In his case, that meant playing Elite in 'co-op' on a BBC Micro (one player uses the movement keys, the other shoots) until his parents finally caved and bought an Amstrad CPC 6128. These days, when not steering the good ship PC Gamer, Tim spends his time complaining that all Priest mains in Hearthstone are degenerates and raiding in Destiny 2. He's almost certainly doing one of these right now.
