Wake Up Call is a next-generation sci-fi stealth-action shooter with a heavy emphasis on choice-driven gameplay and story in a unique and atmospheric post-apocalyptic world. Wake Up Call tells the story of Kyle Rogers, an ex-special ops soldier who has been awoken after over 150 years of cryostasis sleep. The world went to hell while Kyle slept, and it has been transformed into an alien planet. Experience Kyle’s story through a visceral and intense true first person perspective that allows for heightened immersion and gameplay fluidity. Challenge yourself to beat the game’s smart AI that adds new levels of challenge to the stealth-action genre. And finally immerse yourself in a dynamic and choice-driven story-line that will have you on the edge of your seat until the very end. Wake Up Call will be one epic adventure that any and all sci-fi fans will need to experience.

So, this is a post designed to inform everyone of what we are doing and to tease what is going to be coming up in the next (hopefully) few weeks.  Also, the team has changed quite a bit, and I wanted to tell you all a little about that.

Team Changes/Recent Work:
I'm gonna put these in a list so it's easy to digest.
1. Several members have left (leaving vacancies we need filled)
2. We have gained a few members (still have spots open)
3. We have begun a push to expand our art team; the ad is here: 
Indiedb.com
4. We have been getting larger assets out of the way/in progress (characters, weapons, etc)
5. We now have almost all our managing systems working so that we can work more efficiently.
6. Level design and planning work has been going on behind the scenes on several levels in the game.
7. Our first big milestone is nearing completion (that is the next big update).
8. Finally, the vast majority of our pre-production work is finished and we are now moving into full-scale production.

Recent Media Releases:
Well, if you have been following us, you will know that we have released MANY pictures lately of concept art and some renders.  So, I am going to attempt to put down the best ones here:

Promotional Wallpaper 2--City Under Fire VTOL Concept--Vehicles Are AWESOME! Boy, I Sure Love Guns! Scout Class RSF Final Concept TK9 SMG Final Third Person Model+Texture! XR15 Texture Update

Of course, you can check out the rest in our image gallery.  Keep an eye out for a teaser image or two of our next big update!

Until later, this is Millan Singh singing out!

The weapons look incredibly blocky.

I actually really like that facet of their design. To me, it speaks of an easily compactible, yet incredibly sturdy and relieable weapon upon which you can depend.

It is an important part of the design, so needless to say, that is here to stay.

The first one looks good, its clearly part of its design, but the second one is very unaesthetic with those round forms and needs some changes.

Well, I unfortunately disagree with you, and at least for now, we are not able to make any changes to it regardless as all our resources are in something else that is more important and hopefully can be released soon.

Good luck for the incoming future.
I do like so much the sketches: I like the minimalistic esthetics of the guns. I like the last ones the more.
The robot is very good, will it keep all its details in game?
