Apple Features Prey

Apple has posted a feature on Prey, a groundbreaking first-person shooter that turns the genre upside-down with new gameplay features such as wall-walking and spirit-walking and next generation graphics.
“There were definitely a lot of ways in which we were inspired,” explains project lead Chris Rhinehart. “Of course, the classic sci-fi films, such as Aliens and The Matrix, inspired us, and we were also inspired by the writing of Joss Whedon — known for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly — in the way he injects self-referencing humor.”Please follow the links below to learn more information.
Rhinehart notes that Prey’s storyline is focused on “the theme of rediscovering and accepting one’s heritage,” an idea that constantly dogs Tommy as he explores The Sphere and discovers its dark secrets. Enisi teaches him about spirit walking, as well as how to battle through the Death Realm and return to his body. Both elements bring new wrinkles to typical first-person shooter gameplay, as do the gravity flipping and wall walking capabilities found on The Sphere.
