Cipher Complex: video interview and screens

American Ninja.


This new game in development for Sony's new console is probably meant to be Metal Gear Solid with Max Payne bullet time and Shinobi-styled rapid executions. Cipher Complex is the first original outing of Edge of Reality Games, a company usually associated with licensed games from movies and spin-offs. It seems that after building up a nest egg of capital (and rage), the folks at the company have decided to make stealth combat focus more on killing everything quickly rather than sneaking around quietly.

That doesn't sound very nice, but it's true. The Metal Gear Solidcomparison has to do with the sneaking aspect, while the Max Payne comparison deals with Cipher Complex's use of an adrenaline system to allow the character to speed up and kill multiple enemies before you can say "Shirley!" Obviously, rapid-fire killing with knives is a very ninja-esque thing to do.

While not much about the game has been finalized yet, we might as well leave you with some interesting tidbits. Here's a video interview with some of the game's creators, talking about the mechanics of the game and some of the inspirations behind its creation. Also, feel free to enjoy the screenshots we've grabbed from IGN for you. Enjoy!

Bring out the knives and click on "Full Article" for more screenshots.




UPDATE: It seems like Edge of Reality really wanted to make up for the long silence on this military stealth game. Just a day after releasing fresh screenshots (which, by the way, are not to be expected only on the PS3 version but on the Xbox 360's, as well), the company's unleashing the game's logo, three more screenshots, plus a batch of artworks. Hope you like 'em.

Yep...more goodies - logos, concept art, plus three new screens - from this Edge of Reality title after the jump!
