I don't know about you, but I pine for the heady days of cheesy FMV cutscenes. Remember Kane, devouring the scenery in Tiberian Sun
? How about good old Kyle Katarn in Jedi Knight
? We'll not see their like again. Well, at least developer XGen Studios is still keeping the art alive - they've released a live action trailer to go along with the launch of their space mining game Super Motherload
Now that's what I'm talking about. XGens's game has you mining for rare resources on Mars, upgrading your pod and avoiding natural hazards. Interestingly, it also has light RPG elements and a story written by Image Comics' Kurtis Wiebe. There's also 1-4 player co-op.
Super Motherload is out now on Steam for $11.99, discounted for launch week. After that it'll return to the normal price of $14.99.
