Exertus is a first person platformer for Linux and Windows PC. Thanks to developer Loneminded. The game just released on Steam. And the reviews are a solid 96% Positive.
Exertus first person platformer. Due to the free-run and old school FPS inspired movement mechanics. As a result, this is a graphically stunning game. While remaining challenging. Which reminds me of Cluster Truck meets SEUM.
First of all Exertus uses a fluid movement system. Pitting the player against dynamic level elements. Since you have the simple aim of getting from point A to point B. Besides that, you can either use the beaten path. Or the off-path environment in the semi-linear levels.
For whatever reason, the developer does not have an official trailer. So I managed to dig up some gameplay. Likewise, take note of the lighting and the level dynamics. For a cost-effective release, this is certainly impressive.
