Looking to fire 10 rockets into the air, control them in-flight, then bring them down on your enemy? You can do that. Or maybe you just want to grab a glider, take it to the skies, and chain gun someone to death? You can do that too. Or, switch into turret mode, and shoot a barrage of lasers 360 degrees? Why not and while you're at it, deploy stationary guns, launch projectiles, blast cannons, place ice traps, and escape it all with a well timed boost! This is Silas. Get ready for one of the most fun and addictive multiplayer and single player experiences you will ever have!
Prepare to enter the world of Silas, an innovative kart racing/shooter hybrid, and become one of 12 different characters looking to compete in a high stakes tournament. Gear up to race in 12 diverse environments, and wage war in 8 different arenas. Choose from 18 different weapons to wreak havoc, each with 2 unique firing functions. Weapons are either projectile or turret based and use a new targeting system to make it all possible. Enjoy an original soundtrack with 22 songs and hundreds of sound effects and voiceovers.
Single player modes contain such classics as Grandprix, V.S, Mission, and Time Trial, where you can compare your scores with the world. The online component allows battle and racing for 2-12 players, contains a fully featured lobby system, and allows stats tracking. Experience 7 distinct multiplayer modes, such as Deathmatch, CTF, Battle, Survival, and Capture the Pipes. Silas is being created by a single independent developer (William Sworin) and has been in development for a period of 5 years.
The philosophy behind the creation was always to make a fun, solid, and balanced game, and to revolutionize the kart genre which hasn't changed much within the last decade. It is being built to take advantage of the PC, in terms of both gameplay and graphics, but also supports alternate methods of control.
