We’ve got six new screenshots of Shootmania Storm here, and I’ve got to say, this game is looking… well. It looks pretty. I was and to a degree still am hyped for Shootmania. But I’ve got to admit, I was rather expecting a game with the word ‘shoot’ in the title to involve some badass looking guns and a variety of weapons. What I’m seeing here seems a little more kiddified. But hey, maybe you like the whole “Laser-Tag with a dash of Tron” look, and if so, boy… do we have the screenshots and video for you! Click in to see.
Really, the one shot that’s really standing out to me in this selection is that of the in-game creation tools. That’s one thing the -Mania guys really knocked out of the park with Trackmania, and I’ve got a good feeling they’re going to manage that again with Shootmania Storm. I just hope there’s more to the weapons and models than what we’re seeing – but hey, at least they’ve got their own unique charm. Yes, I’m a glass-half-full kind of guy. The video is impressive in a made-with-supplied-tools context.
