With a production crew that consists of ex-Bungie Studios employees, I would have thought that Fallen Frontier would features an interface akin to those in your standard first-person shooters. Interestingly enough, it doesn't. Moonshot Games' upcoming title is a 2D sidescrolling shooter that will feature both single player and co-operative play, something that seems almost mandatory in the genre.
According to what has been revealed so far, the game revolves around your stereotypical jaded lawman and his misadventures in the frontier worlds of Alpha Centauri. Presentation-wise, I can't help but draw comparisons between Fallen Frontier and the recently released Gemini Rue. However, where the latter is an adventure game, this looks like it will be a far more visceral experience.
While I'm going to withhold judgement till I have had the opportunity to try out the game at PAX East, I'm going to have to admit that Fallen Frontier looks rather lovely in a grim, dystopian sort of way.
