Space Hulk Interview and Screenshots

Full Control is working on a new Space Hulk game, and Rock Paper Shotgun has an interview with their CEO Thomas Hentschel Lund. The article also contains the first ever screenshots.

RPS: I will try to more insightful this time. The obvious question is what are we in for with this game? We don’t know much about it yet.

Thomas Hentschel Lund: What we’re overall aiming for is to take the board game experience and make a digital game out of it. What we mean with that is not taking it literally, 1:1. If you have in your head the boardgame as you play that, and XCOM, and mix those two together. That’s the game experience you can expect from Space Hulk.

As you play the game and move around, and see your tactical squad, we have an action camera that goes down into the corridor and shows the action up close. Or if you’re in Overwatch and a Genestealer’s going down a corridor, the camera will sometimes switch down and into an over-the-shoulder shot with the Terminator firing an Assault Cannon. You see the Genestealer in real-time moving up and then suddenly it hits and splats.

So, that kind of vision is what we aim for on an overall level. And trying to make it as cinematic and creepy and claustrophobic as possible.

I can't resist -- *nerd voice* that, sir, is a terminator squad, not a tactical squad!

Thank you - I feel much better now

Never played any of these board games but i played the original Space Hulk
game and really enjoyed it.

Personally I'd like to see a new Incubation game, I think the original developers Blue Byte
are still kicking around but are now owned by Ubisoft.... So thats as good as dead.

The Space Hulk board game is equal parts tense, infuriating, cruel and exhilarating. I can't wait for this game to come out.
