Dark and Doomlike, Tenka (working title) takes place in a completely 3D polygonal environment. In 20 levels, you hunt down mutants, robots, and other weird humanoids in hotels, sewers, and prisons. Your gun, complete with a laser sight, morphs into nine weapons, and you can power-up with a motion-tracker device. Very intense.
Here's an EGM exclusive! While our editors were cruising through ECTS in London, they stumbled into an ultra highly rendered PlayStation version of a new Doom-type game from Psygnosis. This is so hush-hush that the U.S. guys won't talk about it and the Brits just kind of smiled as we snapped a few pictures. Based on their reputation for making the most exciting PSX games around, this could be the one to watch in '96!

This first-person 3-D Doom-ish game looks to be more than just a violence-filled walk through different levels. Tenka has some major objectives. This title, with over 15 levels in four missions, has specific mission tasks instead of just finding an exit or triggering a switch. This, according to Mark Day, PR manager for Psygnosis, is what sets Tenka apart from being a simple Doom clone. Details are still early but from inside info EGM received on Tenka, it looks like your character is part of an underground resistance group. You have an array of weapons that morph on screen when changed. Keep an eye out.
Hold on to your hats kids, there is another first-person perspective shooter coming to the PlayStation. While that's nothing new, this one is by Psygnosis, so you know it's bound to be good.
You play Tenka, who is out to stop a giant corporation from producing an army of evil bionoids. Your only weapons are a prototype warfare package named ZENITH and a "self-generating polymorphic gun." Sure it sounds funny, but it's quite powerful.
Instead of having multiple weapons, you now have one gun that can be upgraded into nine different forms.
Tenka features 20 different environments with motion-captured polygon enemies running at 30 FPS.
This should be one of the better first-person games available.
