Fight wintry colossi in the Team ICO-inspired Prey for the Gods

Prey for the Gods

Plenty of games have been inspired by the wonderful, minimalist Shadow of the Colossus. However, making a 3D game firmly in that mould is quite the undertaking, and one that only Prey for the Gods, to my knowledge, is attempting to pull off. It's a game about fighting giant colossi in a wintry wonderland, and the first trailer is hitting all the right notes.

As a "lone hero sent to the edge of a dying world", you have to investigate what's causing a damnable eternal winter, seemingly by climbing giant furry monsters that want to squish you. Developer No Matter hasn't revealed much more than that yet, but the three-person dev team's first trailer made me go "oooh" in an approving way, so I think they might be onto something.

His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet.
