People often complain first person shooters have become stale. There are not too many studios out here trying to innovate. I might have found one, though. They’ve created a game called Mothergunship, and it combines FPS elements with bullet hell elements. NieR: Automata is doing the same with hack & slash genre. I guess that’s the new wave? Below is a bit more info on the game.
“MOTHERGUNSHIP mixes bullet-hell intensity with the shooting, customization, and traversal of the first-person genre. Fight your way through the alien fleets, facing randomized enemy and level mayhem as you clear rooms and take out some of the biggest bosses seen in the FPS genre.”
