It’s a fair argument to say that first person games, especially of the shooter variety, have gone through their bag of tricks. Indomitus Games has set their ambitions high with their first game, In Verbis Virtus, which promises to be an innovative entry in the genre.
There’s only a handful of rooms in the demo, but for what it’s worth, they look beautiful. The textures, lighting and overall design of the interior of the temple gives the illusion of a real and troubled past within the temple walls – they’re top notch. The atmospheric environment is beautiful and inviting, while at the same time eerily concerning as you can almost feel that theres something lurking behind the stone pillar that stands in the shadowed corner of the room. The level design doesn’t leave much for wanting, albeit needing a little bit of polish. But let’s be fair: It’s a demo and the game isn’t greenlit yet! In Verbis Virtus looks like it could easily be a break out game that demonstrates the technological innovation that talented indie developers are capable of.
