Bright Memory: Infinity is a marvelous technological achievement coming from a single developer. The visually stunning first-person shooter made by FYQD Studio and published by PLAYISM is set for release on PC (via Steam) and Xbox Series X/S later in 2021, and it will be localized in Japanese, English, Simplified Chinese, Latin American Spanish, German, French, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese.
A new gameplay trailer released today offers us a glimpse at what’s to come. Dubbed as a “first-person slash-and-shooter,” Bright Memory: Infinite encourages players to chain together combos mixing swordwork and gunplay during fast-paced fights. The intricate combat system lets players extend combos and chain attacks by using precise dash and “pulse” abilities that alter time and gravity, lining up enemies for cinematic executions.
Bright Memory: Infinite is set in the year 2036 when a strange black-hole-like phenomenon appears in the skies all around the world. The Supernatural Science Research Organization (SSRO) sends out agents, including the protagonist Shelia, to investigate and stop rival factions from discovering dangerous secrets before they can contain them. The mysteries behind these black holes and the worlds crossing over will forever change the futures of Shelia and Earth.
FYQD Studio’s first solo project Bright Memory was a launch title on Xbox Series X/S and also a success during the Steam Early Access period, with Steam purchasers entitled to a free copy of Bright Memory Infinite. This successful freshman project also adds NVIDIA RTX tech features, Ray-traced reflections, NVIDIA DLSS, and received the first Unreal Dev Grant from Epic Games.
“The moment of Bright Memory Infinite’s release is getting closer. The things I have learned from Bright Memory’s release on Steam and Xbox Series X|S taught me a lot and allowed me to make so many improvements to Infinite. I hope my project motivates other indie devs to never give up on what they can accomplish,” said Xiancheng Zeng, sole developer, FYQD Studio.
Those who haven’t played the original Bright Memory game can pick it up right now from Steam for less than $10/€10.
