Experience Paddington Station with These New Screens and Art from The War of the Worlds

Reverb Inc. has released some more screenshots for The War of the Worlds. Check them out after the jump.

 

Here we have two in-game screenshots and one piece of concept art from one of the early levels in the game, Paddington Station. Arthur Clarke, the protagonist, has just awoken from a train crash in the station caused by unknown invaders – this somber, moody level will have players platforming through dangerous obstacles and surveying the damage these Martians have caused, which is only a mere hint at what’s to come…

The War of the Worlds is a dark and breathtaking new vision inspired by the classic H.G. Wells novel, retold as a single player, 2D action-adventure. The gameplay narrative parallels the timeline and events from the 1953 movie adaptation, but introduces a new story arc, characters, locations, and sub-plots.  With gameplay paying homage to classic cinematic platformers such as Out of This World, Prince of Persia, Flashback and Heart of Darkness, players follow the exploits of an unknown everyman struggling to escape the Martian invasion of London and rescue his family. Forced to think through insurmountable odds, players will outsmart an army of alien tripods, spiders and drones as they make their way through a landscape of total devastation.
