The Callisto Protocol roguelike spinoff Project Birdseye announced

Project Birdseye

Publisher Krafton and developer Striking Distance Studios have announced Project Birdseye, a new spinoff game set in the universe of The Callisto Protocol.

The new tentatively titled roguelike action game is set in the Black Iron Prison from their sci-fi horror shooter IP. Further information like a release date or release platforms weren’t confirmed.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus its reveal trailer:

Project Birdseye is Striking Distance Studios’ take on a fast-action roguelike experience set in Black Iron Prison.

Last year, a small group of us began working on a passion project that was born out of our obsession with easy to pick up and play but fun to master roguelikes. We love the world we created for The Callisto Protocol and want to keep playing in that sandbox – and Black Iron Prison is the perfect future-punk playground for the team’s vision.

As you can tell, this isn’t The Callisto Protocol 2 – think of it as a side quest that really resonated with the team – it let us expand the world of The Callisto Protocol and stretch our creative muscles on something a bit different without impacting development on our next AAA game.

Since so much of The Callisto Protocol’s post-launch journey was shaped by the community, it made sense to bring everyone in during an early phase of development to see if the concept clicks with you as much as it has with us. Please check out the reveal video below and let us know what you think!
