Jetpacks, flying saucers and vertical combat: Photos of Airtight’s “Dark Void” video game

Here are a few more screenshots from “Dark Void,” the upcoming first release from Airtight Games, a studio started by former Microsoft game developers in Redmond.

Today’s column looked at “Dark Void,” the studio and Capcom, the Japanese publisher partnering with Airtight on the game.

Here’s Will, the main character, battling his way upward and demonstrating the game’s “vertical combat” technology. To shoot at the aliens above the ledge, you pull on the left trigger to pop up and take a shot:
