Cradle is promising to be “an open-world adventure”. Built using CryEngine 3. I think this one is for you, PC gamers.
Of course, it’s easy to make big promises while your game’s still in development. And it’s easy to have a game looking good when there aren’t any characters on the screen.
The combat system does sound interesting, though: it’s going to be based on where you’re aiming, not what button you press, which should make hacking and slashing more varied and useful than, say, Skyrim’s blind mouse-clicking.
Cradle’s looking for $US300,000 on Kickstarter.
