Beneath Software has released its new first-person shooter Retchid in early access, which is heavily inspired by Doom 3. In a way, this is what a modern version of Doom 3 could look like on a modern engine. And yes, this is another game that uses the Unreal Engine (in this case it’s UE4, not UE5).
Retchid is described as a gripping, atmospheric and methodical first-person shooter with some cosmic horror influences and a dash of Mesoamerican themes. The game promises to be intense and visceral combat combined with exploration and easy puzzle solving.
Its final version will consist of over 20 non-linear levels divided into 3 episodes. From Beneath Software strives to handcraft each level to create a unique experience. So the level design philosophy of the game will be similar to the older generation games.
Players will be able to discover secrets, find collectibles, weapon and costume upgrades, and find PDAs to find out what happened at the TEC Mining facility.
