Developer reckons the Wii is overlooked for shooters

High Voltage Software, one of the world's largest independent developers, reckons that the Wii has been unfairly overlooked as a serious FPS-capable console. They say they’ll set the record straight with the release of The Conduit, a first-person action shooter that High Voltage claim will provide some of the best visuals seen to date on the Wii.

Using their proprietary Quantum 3 Game Engine technology, the High Voltage Software crew say they’re set to bring “fast and fluid gameplay with an advanced set of visuals intended to squarely establish the Wii as a true next-generation gaming platform.” And on top of that, The Conduit with also have a multiplayer component. Some of the graphical features High Voltage say will be in the game include dynamic environment mapping, interactive water with real-time reflection and four-stage texture composition including gloss, diffuse, and bump mapping… phew!
