Prey is a first-person shooter video game developed by Human Head Studios and produced by 3D Realms. In this game, we will take control of a Cherokee called Domasi Tawodi to fight a number of alien races. The game will include innovative styles of gameplay and some new elements as "Wall Walking" which is literally the ability to walk on walls and "Spirit Walking" meaning the possibility of leaving your physical body and control the spirit,. Another interesting feature that emphasizes the search for innovation is the capability to manipulate gravity. All this is possible thanks to the use of a modified version of id Tech 4 which enables us to use portals and variable gravity in the environments creation.
