Speaking to CryDev.net, Creative Director at Illfonic Kedhrin Gonzalez describes their debut FPS title, “Nexuiz is the competitive shooter.” He adds, “we’ve done a lot of community outreach, listened to our fans and included their ideas in Nexuiz. It is faster, more intense and more fun than ever. PC gamers, especially competitive gamers, want speed, high-quality graphics and non-stop action.”
