To be honest I don't like the name. Receiver is clever, because you're a person receiving a message but it's also a part of a gun. It's wordplay. But what the balls is a relock? Other than that, I don't see a problem. Yes, it's an obvious clone of Receiver. Just like Warcraft was an obvious clone of Dune 2, and a myriad other examples. Nothing wrong with that at all. As for the graphics style, it doesn't look similar at all. Receiver is very dark and oppressive, Relock is bright and airy. If anything, I'm getting MIrror's Edge vibes from it. I like the aesthetic of it a lot more than that of Receiver.zzwerty wrote:I like the idea of multiplayer, but does anyone else think this just looks a bit too much like Receiver? Even the name sounds similar. The graphics look nearly identical (Similar handgun, similar art style) to the point that people might actually mistake Relock for Receiver or vice versa (The logo also looks quite similar). Shouldn't more features other than just Multiplayer and extended gun customisation be added to differentiate it more? It does look like it will be a good, smooth FPS but the similarity worries me.
Too bad the KS campaign bombed, btw. I hope it gets made anyway, it's one of very few MP FPSs I might be interested in playing.
