Don’t you just hate it when you wake up inside a cryostasis pod and the entirety of humanity has become enslaved to an angry, paranoid human hybrid species? Well, that’s exactly what’s happened in Wake Up Call, an ambitious new game from Dark Synergy Studios.
You play as a ‘no nonsense’ ex-special ops soldier by the name of Kyle Rogers. Poor Kyle has been sleeping for the past 150 years and has since found himself in a bit of a situation. Humankind has evolved, and an entirely new species called the Kalders are now sharing the planet. The Kalders are a more aggressive variant of human and wasted little time in dominating their counterparts. Naturally, it’s up to Kyle to save the day.
Built with Unreal Engine 4, Wake Up Call is looking like an ambitious project. Little more is known about the game except that it will focus on ‘stealth-action’ FPS gameplay, and players will have the ability to make important choices as the story progresses. Only time will tell if the team at Dark Synergy Studios can achieve what they’re planning to with Wake Up Call, but the story has just the right amount of sci-fi and apocalyptic doom to grab my attention.
