Dark Vale is a beautiful indie CRYENGINE game created by a single person, first screenshots

Ryan Schake has shared the first screenshots from his upcoming indie title that is powered by CRYENGINE, Dark Vale. Dark Vale encompasses quite a few different types of environments; from wintery wastelands and summer forests to deep secret bunkers and caves, and looks absolutely beautiful.

Now since this is created by a single person, there is a probability that this game may never see the light of day. Moreover, it appears that this is an exploration/walking simulator so don’t expect a lot of action or crazy complex AI from NPCs/enemies.

Dark Vale aims to cover a number of themes and styles such as sci-fi, modern day construction, and Dieselpunk of sorts. The following screenshots show off the environments that have already been completed.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
