Prey to the Gods seems deliberately designed to awaken your nostalgia for Shadow of the Colossus.

Prey to the Gods has a lone character with a bow facing off against enormous enemy creatures. That and the art style are enough to spark comparisons to Shadow of the Colossus, but developer No Matter has dropped a couple of references that seem to point at its inspiration.

Heavy-handed hints aside, I doubt anybody’s going to complain about a new game in the same vein as Team Ico’s classic, which has never been matched. That said, No Matter hasn’t provided platform or release date details, and there’s no word on funding or whether the trailer and stills below are made with actual development assets, so don’t get too excited just yet.
