Nether attracting front page attention

In advance of Phosphor’s upcoming first-person survival adventure, Nether, they’ve received front page coverage on Gamespot, IGN, and Polygon. Look for Nether to go live on Steam at the end of October!

Gamespot:
“I know what you’re thinking. Someone mentions a new multiplayer survival game set in a postapocalyptic world that’s overrun with subhuman creatures nipping at your heels, and your first assumption is “been there, done that.” But then a game like Nether comes along. Its mix of design philosophies, which falls somewhere between the frenetic nature of Left 4 Dead’s action and the cautious play favored by DayZ, could inject this subgenre with some new life.”

IGN:
“Nether stacks up quite favorably against its survival-action contemporaries.”
“Combat feels fast and fluid. Guns have a more traditional FPS kick, and melee strikes connect predictably, and with weight.”

Polygon:
An interview with director and co-founder Chip Sineni. “Players… will constantly be at the mercy of their environment and its many threats.”
