Hey everyone! I've been a member of the gamedev.net forums for a long time, and thought I'd share something I've been working on for a long time - something I've gotten your help on from time to time! [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img]

Anyway, my name is Brad Carney, and I'm the lead developer behind a new indie FPS called [url="http://www.wrackgame.com/"]Wrack[/url]!

[b][u]ABOUT THE GAME[/u][/b]

Wrack is fairly unique game in that it fuses a lot of elements from FPS's with those of platformers. While you have large, action-packed levels to explore like in Doom and Duke Nukem 3D, you have all sorts of nerve-wracking (HA!) jumps, heavily themed levels, and Megaman-style bosses every couple of levels or so. The end result is something we call a "first-person platformer", and we're loving the result so far!

Here are some screenshots from the first three levels:
