Love Cyberpunk? Coming soon: METROCIDE
Last year Flat Earth Games blasted onto the gaming scene with the success of their first title ‘Town Craft’. Now they’ve given us a taste of their next release, the top down stealth action shooter ‘Metrocide’.
‘You play as legendary contract killer T. J Trench, taking out the trash one target at a time. Play through the tree zomes of retro-futuristic and cyberpunk inspired Metrocity earning cash for completing kills in this brutal stealth-action game inspired by such classics as Syndicate and Grand Theft Auto.’ – www.metrocide.com
I have had the privilege of witnessing Metrocide’s development from it’s conception during a Cyberpunk Game Jam back in March. What started as ‘We need to create a game in 10 days’ became ‘Let’s see what we can turn this into’ (a rather appropriate representation of the innovative attitudes of developers Rohan and Leigh Harris). I am fortunate enough to be a contributing voice actor and musician for Metrocide, so of course I am VERY excited for it’s release in the coming months (albeit, a little bias).
‘Call it a catharsis project. Hyper-violence, extreme difficulty and a cyberpunk aesthetic make me a happy boy. Makes me warm inside’- Leigh Harris, Flat Earth Games.
If you’d like to receive updates, ask questions or just have a chat with the developers head over to flatearthgames.com.au and join the mailing list. As for my own personal review?
‘A blood-spatter 3D pixel-tastic hunt ’em down shooter that will leave you frustrated and addicted, like a partner that pisses you off but is great in bed.’
