The Conduit [Wii – Tech Demo / Beta]


On April 17th 2008, High Voltage studios revealed footage for a new and mysterious game called ‘The Conduit’. The footage was a tech demo which displayed some of the visual effects that they had managed to achieve on the wii.

Almost exactly one month later, on May 16th 2008, High Voltage released more in-game footage of a beta version for their new, highly-anticipated first person shooter, ‘The Conduit’. The beta pushes the potential of the wii hardware visually, showing off some fancy effects and detailed textures.

In a later video, the developers show an interesting comparison between the first build of the game and the almost-final version. Props to High Voltage Software for showing this!

The final version of The Conduit have a hidden file called CDGame.txt in which can be changed some options to play with the debug mode. If you change the debug options to “ON” you can play the E3 demo with debug features. Also, by activating the conduit’s debug menu you can access a secret test level. The Test level – thanks to hackers – can now be played in multiplayer!

…you can also access an unused/beta level called the sanctum.

Thanks to tgarciao and DCodes7 for the contributions!
