Thunderful Publishing has announced its partnership with Brighton-based developer FuturLab for their next sci-fi adventure, a stylish, high-intensity third-person combat game. According to the teams, this new game will be a spiritual successor to the award-winning Velocity series.
FuturLab is the team responsible for the arcade speedrunning series Velocity, which includes Velocity, Velocity Ultra, and Velocity 2X. Recently, FuturLab created Powerwash Simulator.
FuturLab Founder and Creative Director James Marsden said:
“FuturLab is celebrating its 18th birthday this year, and we’ve had the greatest gift of Thunderful signing our ambitious new IP. It sees our studio returning to sci-fi action, possessing the same DNA as Velocity. However, this IP will have far more ambition, style, and contemporary relevance. It is nothing short of a dream game, and we cannot wait to share it with the world.”
Thunderful Head of Publishing Dieter Schoeller also added:
“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with FuturLab, an experienced studio with marvelous critical acclaim. The game, prototype, and vision presented to us is second to none! While we can’t say much yet, we can be sure that the project launched with James and his team will delight gamers worldwide with a refreshingly new take on the action genre, presented with stunning visual style and super-tight gameplay mechanics.”
