Today's Xbox showcase gave us a look at Replaced by Sad Cat Studios. Replacement is billed as a "cinematic retro-futuristic action thriller set in a dystopian American version of the 1980s". Wow! It's small, but at least it gives us an idea of what to expect from a project that features great animation and art in today's trailer.
The player controls the AI. placed and followed within the human body as this individual explores a dark and almost post-apocalyptic world. In particular, the fights seem to have some really interesting twists that focus on the great moves you can see in high-end action. We also see the protagonist walking through a ruined building in some tense platforming sequences.
Meanwhile, the graphics themselves are highly visible, using pixel graphics to depict a powerful and realistic world that seems to draw players into the action.
