In Blacklight: Tango Down it’s all about weapon customization. As the most recent Dev Diary shows, the focus of this online first-person shooter is to build your ultimate weapon. There are six basic configurations with 20-30 additions that modify attributes like reload time, clip size, bullet spray, and scope.
The creators want you to be able to make a weapon so distinct to who you are that other players could tell whose weapon they picked up. While this may be a stretch, it’s clear to see that this game is attempting to distinguish itself from the billions of other FPS that exist. By releasing this game solely through online distribution and by concentrating on giving gamers the power to create their own unique weapon, they hope to give us something we haven’t seen before. Originality is something that’s hard to find in the FPS genre, so any attempt to give us a new experience is worth checking out.
