With Final Fantasy 15 on the horizon, eagerly awaiting its chance to disappoint the world after ten long years in the oven, one man with a vision has attempted to take on the behemoth, or, more importantly, use it as inspiration for a beast of his own.
Below is the debut trailer for Lost Soul Aside, an FFXV inspired action game developed by a single man using Unreal Engine 4.
Wow. It is insane what one man can do, especially considering the scope of the project. While obviously early in development, the ambition here is breathtaking.
The combat, in particular, is what stands out here, as FFXV‘s combat is severely lacking in both substance and polish from what I’ve played. We can already assume that what we are seeing is only a very early rendition of his vision for combat, it already looks to be visceral, entertaining fun. I just wonder how he intends to tackle such a seemingly massive open world with a small budget and without a team behind him.
Either way, what we’re seeing so far is quite impressive and this is a hell of a way to make a first impression.
