A New Zero: the physics-based first-person shooter with no animations

Cryptic Sea has released a gameplay video for its upcoming physics-based first-person shooter that uses no graphics.

The video shows a player moving around the game world of A New Zero, shooting at enemies and taking fire, with all movement performed through the physics engine rather than animations. While it is still in a rough state, the developer says it is getting close to being playable, and because it's entirely physics-based and does not rely on any animations, the entire game is less than 1MB.

Cryptic Sea is also responsible for games like Sub Rosa, Somnia and Bridge Builder, which can be downloaded here.
