Dubium, an upcoming multiplayer deduction game, has given curious fans a first look at the upcoming gameplay in today’s new trailer. This included character introductions, as well as a variety of tasks, kills and abilities that will be available. You can watch the full gameplay trailer on YouTube here:
Dubium is clearly a 3D riff on Among Us, but that may not necessarily be a bad thing if it can elaborate on its influences in creative and compelling ways. The social deduction aspect has become very popular, although Dubium seems a little less bloody compared to Among Us.
Still, some of the tasks looked pretty neat, especially the space walk. The rhythm of the game is now very clear, as previous trailers only offered cinematic footage. Now, it’s obvious that the game will include a lot more shooting than expected, how the traitors must escape in the Emergency Exit, and so forth.
Fortunately, the kills do look fun, making the most of the spaceship setting. The traitor has more opportunities than ever with the technology available here, which is surely an improvement to the genre, which generally sticks to a one-weapon mechanic.
The art design looks a little clunky. It looks friendly, but not cute enough to create the visual irony of Among Us. The movement also seems like it could be a little sticky, given the strafing in the trailer, but that remains to be seen until the demo.
Between October 3rd and October 10th, 2022, Dubium will provide a Steam Next Fest demo where players can see for themselves. So far, it looks like it could just as easily become a success or mess. But the trailer does look promising.
