Independent developer High Voltage Studios has released the first gameplay trailer for The Conduit, a first-person shooter for the Wii with an impressive game engine behind it. As for the new trailer, we don't see the water and shadow effects that initially piqued our interest. Instead, we see a science fiction shooter reminiscent of Perfect Dark, Starship Troopers or Halo with solid, but not spectacular, visuals.

The Conduit currently doesn't have a publisher. Compared to what does get published on the Wii, that's a shame someone hasn't jumped on this yet. Given the Wii landscape is a bit devoid of quality FPS, we're curious to see how the game progresses. We just don't want to get too caught up in hype, especially after Wii shooter Red Steel ended up drowning in it.
