Microsoft have announced The Darwin Project at their conference at E3. The game seems to be a Hunger Games-esqe experience, with cartoony visuals and buckets of blood. Besides some rather embarrassing ‘shoutcasting’ the game looks like a more casual approach to what games like Player Unknown Battlegrounds is doing and so makes a welcome addition.

Weapons seem to be mainly melee with a few bows and arrows tossed in here and there, with a nifty shield for those who predict the arrows ahead of time. All in all, The Darwin Project is looking like a game of some cheap thrills and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
