Pretty much everyone wants to play as a super powerful badass, roaming the city, saving lives and causing mayhem. But not everyone wants to do it the same way. Do you want to be a Nightcrawler-like teleporter? Or a Magneto-like manipulator? Or maybe you just want to suit up like The Punisher and blow people away?
Phosphor Games' ambitious Project Awakened's answer to those desires is, basically, "Sure." In the video above, you can see a demonstration of how their character-creation will work. If they can pull this off, it'll be pretty cool.
Project Awakened has a story behind it—we reported the game's existence way back in 2011, as a group of ex-Midway developers (i.e. Phosphor Games) took the lessons they'd learned on the cancelled but conceptually similar game Hero and made it into a new property. Phosphor is also the studio behind the very good iOS game Horn.
