Got it last night, and have been thinking about it in my idler moments today. It’s a game about nicking other people’s spaceships, and it’s a lot of fun.
It’s Hotline Miami meets FTL. For the uninitiated, Hotline Miami is an impressive retro styled twitch murder simulator where you die quickly, and restart lots of times. FTL is a starship management game, featuring a pause mechanic where you issue orders and your dudes do their thing.
This has extreme violence, 2D stylings, and actively encourages pausing.
The overall effect is mesmerising. Your dudes are like bullet time heroes that swing from victim to victim. It’s also as brutal in difficulty as Hotline Miami. Even with the pause button, there’s a lot of shit that can go wrong, and it often does. Nevertheless, you’ll keep plugging away, because when it goes right, it feels so damn awesome.
