Deadmau5 is set create his own first person shooter game and to be honest we aren’t that surprised as this feels like it’s been coming for some time now.
The decision to produce his first video game comes after the revelation that he’s creating a LAN/gaming center in Canada. He’s collaborating with Unreal Engine to develop the project, which is still in the “early ‘alpha alpha’ testing” phase.
Deadmau5 recently shared footage of his progress on Twitter. He went on record to stay that he’s “making great progress with the team,” however, we should still “consider it a pet project” and to “give us a year at least”.
Deadmau5 has since shared a further update via Reddit. Where he said “at present, we’re just setting up some basic mechanics, getting a space together where we can jam out in an arena of sorts and spitball ideas… once we’ve agreed on that and nailed in network code and sever delegation, we head down the “fun and original secondary objective” route. once that all gets dialed in, we head into art department and clean her up and carry on improving the funcitonality and playability.”
Watch some footage below of a prototype which according to Deadmau5 has been “slapped together in a matter of two days.”
mad early “alpha alpha” testing… but making great progress with the team. For now, consider it a pet project… give us a year at least. https://t.co/z63JrAC6UQ
