Marcus Cole went hands-off with Prey back in December 2016, here’s what he thought:

“While it bears no immediate relationship to the original, Prey looks to give players an immersive sci-fi experience. The lonely setting is set to give players a real sense of isolation, and the puzzles Morgan must face to succeed ought to give players a challenge. It’s still early days, but Prey seems to be shaping up very nicely indeed.”

The original Prey was a nifty little shooter that never saw the attention it deserved, with the ambitious sequel being cancelled long before this new vision emerged.
