Cosa dicono gli sviluppatori:

Perché l'accesso è anticipato?

“We'd like to get it out and start having fun as soon as we can, feedback and suggestions from the community are very important to us. This is a unique project for a shooter that not only explores the history of FPS games but gives the player first person shooter perspectives in other game genres - we'd love to know what you think and want you to tell us where things are broken so we can fix them asap!”

Per quanto tempo rimarrà in accesso anticipato questo gioco?

“Currently we think around 3 to 4 months with tweaks added weekly and major updates once a month adding further levels each time. We're working on a road map now and will post it here soon.”

Quali saranno le differenze fra la versione completa e quella ad accesso anticipato?

“The full version of Bedlam will have around 24 levels (we may merge some but others are huge), much added polish and lots more cute detail. The first Early Access version launches with 10 of the levels with more to come each month.”

Qual è lo stato attuale della versione in accesso anticipato?

“It's a bit rough around the edges but you'll have great fun. We need you to hunt down those bugs. It will help you understand the concept of Bedlam and just how big that concept is, this is a game that can run and run, while being armed with a gun.”

Il prezzo del gioco varierà durante e dopo l'accesso anticipato?

“Yes, we want to reward early access players for helping us to frag those bugs. You'll receive Bedlam at a reduced price of $19.99. The final version will be priced around $29.99”

Come pensate di coinvolgere la Comunità durante il processo di sviluppo?

“We'll be taking note of all the feedback and we may be able to make some quite big changes prior to full release based on that feedback. We're also hoping to sign off on a sequel, so suggestions for what game types players would like to charge into while armed to the teeth and why would be fun to see!”

We're through the major parts of QA now and awaiting further feedback. Meantime we're working on your suggestions and making some restructuring and graphical enhancements to our larger levels in order to improve navigation and provide more distinctive design touches, these should result in more visual cues to help get your bearings while exploring ^^

BEDLAM - THE GENRE JUMPING SHOOTER

Bedlam is a unique FPS game based on a novel of the same name by cult Scottish author Christopher Brookmyre.

Pitched as a shooter for those who survived online gaming in the 80s and 90s, Bedlam takes a look through an iconic time in online gaming and serves up some authentic gaming nostalgia with up-to-date graphics and gaming features. Bedlam is set entirely in the first-person but will explore other game genres from a first-person perspective.

In the game you play Heather Quinn (aka Athena) a colleague of Ross Baker (aka Bedlam). Heather is an overworked and underpaid scientist developing medical technology for corporate giant Neurosphere. One rainy Monday morning Heather volunteers as a test candidate for the new Neurosphere brain scanning tech - anything to get out of the office for a few hours.

But when she gets out of the scanner she discovers she's not only escaped the office, but possibly escaped real life for good! Heather finds herself trapped in Starfire - the violent sci-fi game she spent her teenage years playing - with no explanation, no backup and, most terrifyingly, no way out!

Join us in Early Access and get ready to unleash BEDLAM.

The description below was written by Christopher Brookmyre for the release of the novel in 2013

Heaven is a prison. Hell is a playground.

Would it be your ultimate fantasy to enter the world of a video game?

A realm where you don’t have to go to work or worry about your health; where you can look like a hero or a goddess; where you can fly space-ships, slay dragons, visit any period in history, any realm in fiction, yet all of it feels completely real. A realm where there are no consequences and no responsibilities, to the extent that even if you die, you can just respawn and start again.

Or would it be your worst nightmare?

Trapped in a place where every demon ever conjured by the human mind can be made flesh. Cut off from the real world, unable to see your family or friends ever again. Stuck in an endless state of war and chaos where the pain and fear feels real and from which not even death can offer an escape.

Prison or playground. Heaven or hell.

This is where you find out

I started this game expecting some bundle trash, but its awesomeness came and hit me out of nowhere. Hilarious (and excellently voiced) dialogue, inventive and humorous levels, intriguing story, and most important of all, FUN gameplay. It didn't overstay its welcome, or try padding things out with repetitive tasks, just good old fashioned FPS BLAM BLAM BLAMING.

Reference city, reference reference city!

A game about being stuck in old games, with the Quake engine visuals to go with it. Plenty of other throwbacks included with swift shooter mechanisms for action parts. So, Quake, Doom, Wolfenstein and other stuff packed into one, basically.

I never laughed so much while playing a video game. Here in this little piece of art you'll find so many references to other games and game modes, I haven't expected this at all when I first saw the screenshots. Don't let the graphics scare yourself off, they are part of the game at the beginning and might let you feel like you're back in the nineties.

The concept is very unique; a bit RPG here, some retro arcade games there, all the references and that filled with funny dialogues and from time to time good music. While you're hooping from one gameworld to another the graphic improves while everything else will stay the same: Shooting and smashing yourself through a horde of different enemies with all the weapons you're able to find in the previous worlds and try to find a way out of the missery your character is in.

The ending though really strained my nerves. The game begun to stutter caused from many enemies that spawned, often resulted in a gamecrash. It's still in the early access so I hope this will get some improvements.

I really enjoyed the game and felt often reminded to the games I played back in the days. It took me around 5.6 hours to beat the game 100% but it was absolutly worth my time.

Get it while it's in a sale or in a bundle and you won't regret anything!

Personal rating:

7.5/10.0

Real Kool Blast Through FPS HIstory

Ok Bedlam short review , here it goes.You play as Athena (female protagonist) that is traped inside a game construct.You aid others like yourself that are being held in this constuct and trying to find a way back to the real world.They aid you in your quest to brake free.

The Game itself is just a real good old school FPS game.The controls are standard FPS style.So if you are familiar with FPS games this game will be a real treat down memory lane.There is so many game references in this game its so awesome! If you play or have played any FPS games from the hay days to now you need to play this one . Its well voiced and the story is well written.

I say real good job on the Dev or Dev's Part makeing this a must play for any FPS Gamer!! I give this one 2 Thumbs up!!

Bedlam is awesome! Graphics and levels are oldschool, in a good way. The narration is surprisingly good. Jokes are genuinely funny and not "forced". So far I enjoyed every aspect of the game.

It's high quality titles like Bedlam that keep the indie game scene as a whole afloat, seriously. Do buy.
