BRUCEFilm has informed us about a new, interesting project called Stay Dead. Stay Dead is a beat em up that introduces a new gameplay style called Motion Capture Game. According to the company, a Motion picture game is their idea of entertainment of the 21 century: a true interactive meeting point between movies and videogames. Playing this new kind of game is said to be like watching the movie ‘Indiana Jones’ and being able to command Indiana in real-time, just like if it was Mario or Lara Croft.
In Stay dead, even if the graphic is entirely shot in real life, players can freely move their character just like in a normal arcade game, and they can perform more than 150 different techniques distribuited in 5 stages.
At his core Stay Dead is a ’round beat’em up’ like Street Fighter with elements taken from rythm games and in every level, players will fight against a different martial art wrestler.
It sounds interesting and you can view some videos from Stay Dead at its official website. Sadly, we don’t get to see how this whole real-time control thing works but hopefully, BRUCEfilm will release a new video with pure in-game footage.

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. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
