Now I shouldn't even be giving this press because it doesn't really deserve any, but this is Source Engine based, and myself, ad_hominem (Joe) & Skoften (Sander) managed to play through with some review copies Joe received from the Devs.
Yeah, it's on steam to buy..SERIOUSLY
"Revelations 2012 is a fantastic and enriching experience that immerses you into the chaos of the Mayan Revelations!"

====================================================================================================SCREENSHOTS:This just looks like my beloved N64 games!
I'll let Joe compile his review, so I won't be doing a proper one myself. But where to start...
First things first, AVOID THIS GAME LIKE THE PLAGUE
If you were thinking to yourself 'hey this looks like L4D!' No, it IS L4D, it's a horrbily reskinned L4D clone, with possibly the worst art I've ever seen in an indie game....I can't even make my brain try and conjure up something this nightmarish. There are freaking palm trees, next to cactuses
, in the middle of a rainforest.
The intro credits were like some sort of bad powerpoint presentation explaining completely irrelevant mumbo-jumbo about the Mayans and Gods, literally, you do not need to know nor care about the shitty filler of 'backstory' provided.
The game grants you the ability to wield some funky arm attachment that you run round spamming Mouse 1, killing any (supposedly) demonic indigenous people. You have to collect crystal skulls or some shit, but it was confusing as hell. It's dark, ugly and for some reason you eat their hearts...LOL OK.
It has an asking price of £11.99
, and this is with a 20% discount people, I hear the only reason it's managed to get licensed distribution is because the guy who started the company is stupidly rich and rounded up some lackluster talent to make this abomination. It sometimes barely even tries to hide it's L4D, the loading screens, the revive a teammate icons, everything! GRATE SUCCESS

It's pretty upsetting when this can get released, and there are HEAPS of mods that are original and look great. And yeah, maybe I shouldn't be so sour because I was able to play a free copy, but we took a bullet playing through this, so you guys wouldn't ever have to!
