We know very little about this game. It could be absolutely anything, not even the name of it has been revealed yet, but the secrecy and the fact that the dev team have worked on classics like Blur, Project Gotham Racing and Geometry Wars is certainly enough to pique our interest.
Lucid Games were formed in 2011 by former senior developers of Bizarre Creations after the studio’s closure following the release of the well regarded, but not commercially successful Blur. Since then Lucid Games have mainly stuck to doing ports for games such as Goat Simulator and GTA: Liberty City Stories, but they’ve also released a few of their own games, including Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions. This is probably the first time that the PC has been the lead development platform though.
The game is currently in development for PC only, with the Beta testing taking place via Steam and some fairly high recommended PC specs suggesting that the game will be quite graphically intensive (though that can also be because the game’s not fully optimised yet). Once you sign up, you’ll have access to the forum and if you’re selected for the Beta you’ll be sent a Steam Beta Key when it starts. We’d love to see a new Project Gotham Racing-style racer of Geometry Wars-style shooter from the team, but it really could be anything they’re working on. Sign up now to be one of the first to find out what it is!
UPDATE: This Beta Is No Longer Available
