Mindjack Lets You Hack Into Another Person’s Single Player Mode

Somewhat reminiscent of Demon’s Souls, Mindjack has a passive multiplayer mode where you can hack into another person’s story mode. Of course, you’re not really "hacking" into a game. Players have to open their world up by selecting host portal.

 

Pick this option to let someone else can jump inside your game. Whether they help your or try to kill you is up to the invading player. This feature (which Square Enix probably should have mentioned earlier) finally makes Mindjack stand out from The 3rd Birthday, which also happens to be a body snatching shooter.

 

If you see some mecha gorilla running in a circle and punching buildings it might be me!

Mindjack is slated for a Q1 2011 release in North America and January 27 in Japan.

      Watch a gameplay video of Mindjack first.

      The graphics and gameplay seem bland in the video I watched. The concept is cool, everything else needs to be worked on in my opinion.

        The main concept is pulled from a game called Geist.

    Well, *now* it’s gotten a wee bit more interesting. …Still have to get rid of that dumbass narrator…

    I think they’re trying very hard to imitate a western shooter style (muted colors, realistic humans/environments), but their tech isn’t on par with western games of this type (lighting, textures) nor do they have a strong art direction. The result is that it looks rather bland. Still gonna try it though.

    I remember a nurse was mentioned in the previous post. I don’t see her…?

    Why does this game feel like a prequel to Vanquish. The main characters look like the ones in that game.

    Not if the buildings are indestructible. It’ll be like punching air.

    There is absolutely NOTHING I have heard about this game that makes me want to buy it. And have I mentioned the trailer was poison?
