|The Factor: Devestation|
The Factor: Devastation is a First-Person Shooter game produced by Gearworks Gaming for the PC. The game is the sequel of The Factor and follows the events of the previous game. The game revolves around the aftermath of the Raven-Industries Crisis and shows the growing tension within the state, of which is now a wasteland.
PlotThe game takes place directly after the death of Malcolm Leychester, prior CEO of Raven Industries. Subsequently following such, the city the Raven-Headquarters is set in has become a desolate wasteland. The fight for hunger and resources has caused conflict within the city and has seperated the city into four major factions, of which now rule areas of the city. Most of these factions are unorganized groups of people whom share similar ideals and intentions, or are from a similar origin. The factions have all become locked in conflict and are in a fight for supremacy within this now anarchic city.
The gameplay of The Factor: Devastation seems to revolve more around survival rather than conflict. The game introduces the Hunger/Thirst system, which is a measure of how far you are from starvation/dehydration. To decrease the amount of Hunger/Thirst you have, you must collect items such as water or food to reduce thirst or hunger respectively. Weaponry or tools are also scattered around the map, and the player is required to collect them in order to defend themselves or set up buildings. As the game progresses, you may develop relations between factions through the Respect system. Depending on what actions you do, or if you complete missions assigned from the factions, your level of respect increases or decreases accordingly. Once you reach a certain level of Respect, you may join that specific faction, which will help in gathering resources and while combating enemy factions.
