Bright Memory: Infinite Box art Come and take a quick trip on a fast and short ride into the future. This game brings a new light to FPS and action games as it fuses the two together in an almost beautiful harmony of gaming. Developed in FYQD studio using Unreal Engine 4, the game is an excellent insight into what might be in the future of gaming. With the ability to combine a variety of skills and abilities to create awesome combo attacks, this game is a welcome change-up for a regular FPS player who might want a short game to spice up their playing.

Zeng Xiancheng is the solo indie developer for Bright Memory: Infinite and has proven that it no longer takes the number of professionals of times past to create such an amazing game from its graphics to the gameplay. I have to agree with what many are saying and that Bright Memory: Infinite is a equivalent to AAA knockout.

In Bright Memory: Infinite we enter the world of a futuristic metropolis in the year 2036. Black holes appear in the skies all around the world and nobody really knows why. Through the narrative we find out that there is an archaic mystery afoot. You play as Shelia, a 21 year old army brat who lost both parents when she was six. The founder of The Supernatural Science Research Organization (SRO) raised her, and she spent years training in various military training and excelled above everyone else. She appears to have super-human abilities herself, making her one of the Ultra-Elite among the SRO emergency inspection team.

I really enjoyed the mix-and-match possibilities of the skills and abilities to create awesome combos on your enemies. Your sword allows you to cut, slash and slice through crowds of enemies and even use it to block incoming attacks. You also have the ability to customize the guns with a variety of ammunitions. You can choose between homing missiles, incendiary bombs or even sticky grenades depending on your mood and situation.

The graphics achieved in this game use the most current programming tools available in Unreal Engine 4, and it really speaks for itself the moment you turn this game on. 4K/60FPS is the default, but there is also an included option to have an even smoother combat experience with 120 FPS if you have the display that can support it. This might be one of the most impressive graphics in-game I have seen so far with how much is happening on screen at once.

The sounds in-game were composed by the same team who did God of War 3 and Resident Evil 2 Remake, so you know it's a fantastic soundtrack. Little sound tidbits within the game are so realistic that I actually thought my phone was vibrating beside me, but it was actually the one in the game. For some, the music in the background might be a little distracting or it might bring you further into the game, it all depends on your style. I quite enjoy it because it helps me get into the action and focus.

The upgrading seems minimal as you can only do it at certain points within the adventure. You have to collect reliquaries in order to do any upgrades but there are still a ton of different skill upgrades to choose from. The sword in the game is probably the most powerful in the fact that it can block attacks and also slice and dice your enemies.

Overall I really did like Bright Memory: Infinite. The amazing graphics, the fact it was created by one person, and the storyline are what made me enjoy it much more than expected. The biggest downside though is that I wish it were longer. But the more you play, the more you upgrade Shelia, thus becoming more powerful, which I really enjoyed. I love that I was able to change her costume as well as a number of different skins for the weapons she uses.

If you're a fan of fast-paced first person shooters, Bright Memory: Infinite is definitely a game for you. There is a distinct smooth combination of ancient Chinese mythology style combined with futuristic technology. While quite a short game, able to be completed in a single sitting, it was entertaining from start to finish.
