Good old Mike Bithell has cleansed our palates by releasing some more screenshots of stealth puzzler, Volume, in a week dominated by Titanfall news. As you can see from the pictures, the level design is now beginning to look more shiny and next-gen as he prepares the assets for a PS4 release. Textures are smoother, perspective blur is more noticeable and bloom and hologram-fuz is in much more evidence. Lighting and shading is dominated by more realistic effects, and coupled with the level editing system, it looks like it is shaping up to be a unique and interesting game on the PS4. We wait with bated breath...
Broforce was born at Ludum Dare 23, an online competition held over the course of a weekend to create a video game. Since then the the developer, Free Lives, have continued to work on the title, and today announced that publisher Developer Digital will help bring the title to Steam Early Access this March.
The game is a cocktail of awesome side scrolling explosions. You control one of many ‘unlockable bros’ based off of 80’s and 90’s action stars using unique weapons and bonuses to destroy enemy soldiers and liberate the world. As you advance through the stages you unlock more characters from the roster (broster?) and you’re soon storming enemy strongholds as Brobocop or RamBro. There’s even a MacGyver based BroGyver who uses his special ability to throw dynamite filled chicken carcasses.
Free Lives have an Brototype (Alpha Build) of the title available on their website if you are interested in checking it out. I spent a good half an hour with it and recorded some gameplay, which is available below.
With a finished release date still unknown, you can preorder Broforce for 15 USD from the Free Lives website or keep an eye out for it’s early access on Steam in March.
