Feral Interactive today celebrates Friday the 13th with the appropriately titled cell-shaded shooter XIII. The game has officially reached beta now, and the company has posted its mini-site for your viewing pleasure.

XIII is a highly stylized first-person shooter with innovative gameplay and interface, utilizing a wide variety of weapons. Here's an exceprt from the official site:

So Much Style It's Criminal
Graphic novel presentation, flashback graphics and pop-up windows create a groundbreaking entry into the genre. XIII marshals the power of Unreal II technology and unique comic-style visuals.

Groundbreaking Gameplay
Experience innovative gameplay based on comic-style effects (e.g. sound of footsteps graphically represented by the words "tap, tap, tap" on the screen to allow you to detect enemies around the corner) as well as a wide variety of more classic gameplay (e.g. cunning use of human shields, silent weapons, handy gadgets, etc.).To survive, you'll master techniques ranging from covert infiltration to heavy combat as you battle sinister conspiratorial forces.

The Ultimate Conspiracy
Unravel a whirlwind conspiracy plot that shrouds your identity, the president's assassination and the future of the United States in mystery.

A Deadly and Original Arsenal of Weapons
Handle a dizzying array of weapons that includes silent crossbows, precision sniper rifles and lethal automatic weapons as well as chairs, bottles, ashtrays and shovels… Every object is a potential weapon!!
