BadFly Interactive made a name for themselves with their 2013 first-person shooter Dead Effect, which is sadly no longer available due to it being published by BulkyPix and them going out of business. Anyway, Dead Effect was awesome in the way it blended straightforward run 'n gun shooting with horror elements, making for a creepy and satisfying experience. Its sequel Dead Effect 2 [Free] took those ideas and expanded on them in every way with far more variety and an emphasis on an RPG leveling system, and it received quite a bit of new content following its release in the fall of 2015. Dead Effect 2 was also ported to Mac and PC desktops and the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and with all of that now out of the way BadFly has started up on a brand new FPS project titled TauCeti Unknown Origin. It's still a work in progress but already the teaser trailer for the game is looking quite stunning.

In TauCeti Unknown Origin you'll play a hero whose spaceship (the ESS Meridian, a nod to the ship in Dead Effect 2) malfunctions and is on a crash course. You snag the only escape pod available and launch yourself onto a planet known as TauCeti, which has also been referenced in previous Dead Effect games, and now it's your job to figure out the secrets of this planet and its ancient civilization as well as keep yourself alive and find your way home. While the Dead Effect games both went multiplatform following their mobile releases, it sounds like TauCeti Unknown Origin is targeting consoles and PC first, and the features sound like they're based around that. It will be a class-based game with cooperative play for up to 8 players and include solo, group and raid content. There will also be a heavily story-driven single-player campaign which will be a follow up of sorts to the previous Dead Effect games. No word yet on when TauCeti Unknown Origin will be releasing but based on how great it's looking even at this early stage you can bet it's one we'll be keeping a close eye on.

    OH! MY! GOD! Best graphics i have ever seen on ios!!! At least from what the video shows 😲

      It says targeting pc first so that's probably the pc version. IOS can't run something like that.

      • sakara214ever

        Oh! Did not know that 🙂 Jesus i thought it was for ios 🙂

        I am and android use . But i think there are some higly intense games out there that ios can run like infinity blade. Offcourse old ios cant run it or probably will lag but new ios phone like 5s 6s 7s will be able to run it in 60fps becouse ios is far better in optimising the system.

        You are mentally impaired if you think any current cellphone can run a game that looks that good, they are barely slightly ahead of consoles from 10 years ago.

      Not to worry, man! I was thinking exactly the same thing!!!! 😉

    • boydstr

      You said it right "At least from what the video shows"I think that those images came from a powerful pc you see that a lot these days.

      Yeah it's published by BadFly on Android so BulkyPix closing didn't affect it. I think I heard them say they were in the process of getting the rights back and publishing it under BadFly on iOS too, but I don't know what the status is of that.

  • Dankrio

    Wow! Very excited for that one!

  • Marmaduke Chuffnell

    It looks like a Far Cry game! I'll believe it when I see it - instabuy!

    • Dipanshu Phukon

      This game is pure concept like the son on dead space+mass effect=dead effect. But its defineatly not far cry as it continues the story of dead effect 2 side carecter. Lets hope they let us drive/fly verhicles too.

  • Steph

    Hope it isn't too downgraded when (if) it releases on iOS.

  • LordShad0wz

    I love Dead effect 2. It's one of my favorite games and I think it's one of the most beautiful games. I absolutely cannot wait for this one!!
