Former F.E.A.R. Devs Reveal Betrayer, First Game from Their New Studio

Posted on August 6, 2013 AT 11:21am

Blackpowder Games, a studio formed of former members of F.E.A.R. developer Monolith Productions, announced their first game, Betrayer.

Betrayer is set in colonial Virginia circa 1604, and revolves around the mystery behind the vanished Roanoke Colony. Apart from being a shooter set in a decidedly less than conductive time period for shooters, the most striking thing about Betrayer, of course, is the black-and-white aesthetic.

“We wanted to get back to crafting games more intuitively,” creative director Craig Hubbard said in a press release. “There’s a sense of discovery and excitement when you navigate by instinct rather than market research and open yourself up to opportunities that arise during development.”

Betrayer will begin its life on Steam Early Access, available August 14 for $15 on Windows PC.
