Human Head’s Secret: Prey

The cat’s officially out of the bag, so now I can finally talk about Human Head Studios‘ top-secret video game: Prey. For those of you who have been playing PC games forever, you might remember that 3DRealms, the makers of Duke Nukem, promised to come out with one particular game before Duke Nukem Forever. That game was Prey.

Human Head has been working on the game under 3DRealms wing for years, and it’s finally coming to light. Gamespot.com has a great interview about Prey on their site, with lots more details, if you’re curious.

When I worked in the Human Head offices, I had the privilege of watching Prey develop and to playtest a few of the levels. This game is amazing. If you’re a first-person shooter or science fiction fan (or, better yet, both), you’re going to want this bad. It uses the Doom 3 engine, so it’s gorgeous, but the gameplay is fantastic too. Time to think about upgrading systems.

  1. All I’ve seen in print so far is that it will be made for a “next-generation console.” Yes, I know what that means. No, I can’t say yet. I believe we’ll see more details at the upcoming E3 show though.

  3. Indeed, man, PREY is sweet. As you know, the guys have been working their collective buttocks off to get this baby done. I’m really happy that they can finally talk to the world about PREY. It’s simply amazing.

  5. Amen, Jason. It’s one of the things that made me reluctant to leave Human Head, although it’s worked out well for me (and for you! 🙂 ). It could (and should) launch Human Head into the forefront of video game developers.

  7. PREY looks like an awesome game. beyond belief awesome, in fact. i love the grenade things. you know, the little aliens that you tear a leg off to make it a sticky grenade? very cool. but the going into the ghost realm thing, it’s cool, but it’s kinda cheap. you die, then you can come back so easily? but the bow is sweet. cant’ wait to buy this game.
