Thanks to an anonymous reader for pointing to N-Sider's in-depth coverage of the forthcoming Gamecube FPS, Geist
. This title was shown at E3
, but the article goes into a lot more detail than most about the game, which is being co-developed by N-Space
and Nintendo. Geist is described as "..a hybrid title that combines the fast-paced action and perspective of a traditional first person shooter with stealth-based game play and a unique new mechanic: the ability to 'possess' other characters in the game."
Perhaps not unique, since Shiny's Messiah
did something similar, but with competitive-looking graphics and multiple ways around problems ("while watching people play the demo, I noticed no one person played it the same"
), it's possible that some of the developer's earlier titles
may be improved upon.
