Prototype actually has a story!

And that story is revealed through rampant cannibalism.

The way to the heart of Protoype‘s conspiracy is apparently through brains, lots of brains. As shape-shifting amnesiac Alex Mercer, you’ll consume various denizens of New York City in order to gain their memories, which will ultimately help you piece together the mystery of your past life. It’s but one of many cool abilities showcased in this video, which also showcases some of Alex’s enemies and allies.

“The main thing we want the player to feel is the feeling that they’re the ultimate bad ass,” says executive producer Tim Bennison. “It’s a revenge quest, so we want players to feel like they’re getting to the heart of the conspiracy that made them the way they are, and making those responsible pay.”
