C:\ANNIHILATE: Frag Tech-Junkies in the Blasted Wastelands of 2X01 in this FPS Game
C:\ANNIHILATE is an indie first-person shooter game produced by Pixel_Trash and published on August 13 of this year, on the indie gaming platform "itch.io". The game was produced for LOWREZJAM 2021 and takes place in a post-apocalyptic world, where half of the world's population was reduced to ashes after a nuclear event. You control a Runner, a dangerous mercenary who has problems with his augmented vision and can only see at low resolution. Despite your partner's warnings, you venture into the ruins and face bandits, mutants and technological zombies in search of supplies to ensure your group's survival.
The game was produced using a resolution of 64x64 pixels, which is very impressive considering that it is a 3D FPS game in the good old Doom style. C:\ANNIHILATE runs very well, with impressive fluidity. In terms of gameplay, the game features the same commands typical of a retro FPS game running on a modern engine, like Doom running on GZDoom for example. Commands respond very well, which provides great playtime. The soundtrack is not memorable, but it blends in very well with the post-apocalyptic cyberpunk vibe provided here.
If there is a downside here, it could be this: C:\ANNIHILATE is very short, and can be completed in a few minutes. But despite that, the game still constitutes such a fun experience, worth it as a pastime.
