Damn, this looks frigging high quality. Only one guy's work thus far!
Ashen Rift is a FPS Survival Horror game, inspired by Quake 1. In true SurHor tradition, resources are scarce and you can choose to fight back. You have a dog companion who can ammo pickups for you and the like.
There's a design emphasis on people playing the game their way.
The strength of Ashen Rifts design does not come from blasting bad guys with bullets for hours on end. It comes from the player's ability to play the game the way their personality dictates. Some people may be averse to combat situations and thus spend the majority of the game avoiding conflict. Others may just feel that the only way to progress is to kill everything in sight, and that is for them to decide and then figure out how to act on those impulses.
