Swallow your way to victory in DS' Prey The Stars
All You Can Eat Special
Even after all these years in games journalism, we have to admit we've still no idea where Japanese gamemakers get their inspiration from.
The latest game from Koei is a case in point. It's called Prey The Stars. To us that sounds a bit gothic, maybe involving vampires. Or perhaps 'The Stars' bit could refer to intergalactic travel? Combine the two – it's a stylish horror game set on a space station, right?
According to a source on the inside, 'It's basically a game where you have to eat everything.'
'The more you eat the better your eating ability. For example, at first you might only be able to eat bits of furniture. As you get better, you can eat entire buildings. And the faster you eat, the better the chance you'll have of beating the other three characters. It's probably better explained by the attached screen shots. And it will be playable by four players all competing against each other.'
Oh. Right. Now we get it....
Currently on a 'see-food' diet, Prey The Stars is due to hit the scales of your local games emporium sometime this autumn.
