The Spire is an upcoming Indie game which will use the ever so popular Unreal Engine although from the Pre-Alpha game footage I have determined that the game will be more or less like having Telekinesis Plasmid in a Bioshock game although since this is the pre alpha footage there could be additions of more powers later on. The game lets you use a Power Glove which gives you the command to push and pull objects.
Here is the game footage, While the game DOES look interesting I look forward on more details. Let’s just hope the developers don’t lose hope and give up on their project like the people working on Project: Black Mesa, which was supposed to be a Half Life 1 remake using the newer Source engine. Although the game has been in development for almost 2 years now there hasn’t been a new update in a long time. I wish these guys the best of luck in their endeavors
