High Voltage's The Conduit is shaping up to be a solid competitor in the FPS genre, with great visuals and the appeal of using the Wii Remote to move your target reticule rather than managing two analog sticks. We went by the Nintendo booth at the Penny Arcade Expo 2008 to get some hands-on time with the upcoming shooter.

The game is still in pre-alpha but the controls felt a lot like Metroid Prime 3: Corruption In The Conduit your controls are fully customizable. You are able to adjust cursor sensitivity, turning speed, the dead zone and change the mapping of all the buttons on the Wii Remote. In the final version, the developers would like to have the ability for players to completely remap the heads up display and be able to drag and drop HUD elements. This will allow players set up their display exactly the way they want it.

Using the Wii Remote and specific weapons, you can shoot around corners by twisting the remote to get people that are hiding out of sight and some weapons can be guided using the cursor like a missile. High Voltage does plan to support Wii Motion Plus add-on.

There are standard multiplayer modes that are available to play online which include: death match, team death match and capture the flag. LAN play is something that they are looking into, and may be available when the game launches. There will also be support for Wii Speak.

Visually The Conduit looks great on the Wii because of the detail in the aliens, your weapons and your environment. The build that we saw was still early so there is still work to be done with lighting and textures. This alien invasion is set for Q1 2009
