    I enjoyed Prey at the time. It was a pretty short game iirc, but it did some interesting things with level design and portal tech / wall & roof walking etc

    Will play the sequel for sure

    Not sure who's making it, despite talk of a trilogy I'm not sure if they would have started work right after Prey.

    Prey was an incredible game. A proper fps too as well as its awesome portal tech. Great and original storyline and a cool art style. If they make a second one as good as the first I'll be stoked. Might have to find my old copy and replay it.

    I also thoroughly enjoyed prey, other than the fact that it was impossible to die.

    Prey was awesome just when I thought it ended it kept going, I think it was a good length, hoping this one is good.. What engine will they use I recal Prey was using the quake engine which is bit 2 old now!

    It was a modified doom3 engine. I'd like to think they'd be using Tech5 and IMO they should have with ES:V but I guess we'll see soon.

    Spewing. I can't find my old copy of PREY. Steam doesnt sell it anymore because they ran out of CD keys or something epically stupid.
    No local games shops would even think about stocking such an old game either.

    Anyone know where you can buy and download online for cheap?

    Also noticed on wiki that bethesda bought the rights. Interesting.

    IIRC I remember seeing a copy or two in the Bargain Basket at my local EB Games. Might be worth a shot. :thumbup:

    I didn't expect this one.
    Prey was pretty cool (the gravity walks) but for such a long game it was very repetitive.

    If you can find your old CD key it activates fine on steam, negating the need to have the original media :)

    I only just starting playing through Prey again last week! Such a great game!

    I love how disorientating it can be. But I mainly started again for the portal puzzles (in anticipation for Portal 2).

    So I'm definitely looking forward to more news on this one..

    Apparently it's not using Tech5.

    I managed to get hold of a copy of PREY and have been playing it again. Still a graphically incredible game. There is so much that is dynamic in the environment.
    Shits all over a lot of new titles.
