Leaden Sky is an upcoming side-scrolling horror shooter game.
It heavily emphasizes atmosphere, story and exploration, taking its inspiration from games such as
Killzone, Resistance, Silent Hill, Half Life, Cry of Fear, Metro and Stalker.
Leaden Sky isn't a standard side scrolling shooter game, it uses many mechanics standardized and popularized by FPS games such as free aiming, location-based damage, realistic recoil mechanics, smooth weapon reloading which can be cancelled, quick melee attacks, etc.
It plays at a slower pace than might be expected, you'll need to be cautious with your advancement through each level and accurate with your shots, spewing ammo and going full Rambo isn't a good idea.
This game features a horror Sci-fi setting where you take on the role of Kyle Anderson, an ex Black Ops soldier who is trying to destroy The Tower - a large device built by invading enemy forces who are referred to as "Mercenaries," a nickname coined by the first reports documenting their initial activities - imprisoning the Polish city in which he lived before leaving for military service.
The Tower generates a massive force field with a radius large enough to keep the entire city contained, keeping anybody from entering or leaving as well as jamming radio waves and ensuring that all communications with the outside world are cut off.
Living creatures and pieces of the environment trapped under the force field began to show bizarre anomalies, some static or neutral, some of which are aggressive and some even being symbiotic, however the vast majority of anomalous phenomena are greatly negative with their effects gradually becoming worse with time.
As the scenario worsens, it becomes increasingly clear that the Tower must be destroyed urgently before its influence becomes too dire to salvage.
Leaden Sky features physics simulation, an advanced lighting system, smooth animations, hand drawn high quality textures, unique art style, high quality sounds and visual effects as well as the superbly atmospheric original soundtrack composed by VIS (link to his Soundcloud and Youtube in title screen).
It also features expansive levels, 3D backgrounds and highly detailed graphic violence, all rendered in full HD resolution (1920 x 1080).

Game is still in quite early stages of development so things are about to change or be improved, however with each update I'm getting close to the vision I imagined, so stay tuned, I improve the game as fast as I can.
Hello, this is Helghast_95 - creator of Leaden Sky.
I am very happy to present video containing gameplay footage of the newest Leaden Sky update, the update is work in progress so expect many improvements before release.
As you are about to see, now I focus primarily on atmosphere, horror, proper level design and story that will be revealed once the update is released.
I had very good reasons for all the changes I did and I don't care how much some of the kids here love to "torture muh bindits!" or want more "GOOOOREEE", my target is to create a great game, not a sandbox for psychopaths.
It's the time for me to stick to my vision of the game that you are about to see.
You can love it, you can hate it, I'll continue making MY GAME how I want.
Enjoy the video and remember, it's meant for mature audiences, not for kids.
