The trailer for Morbid Metal from tonight’s Future Games Show had quite a lot of steel (the music style) and steel (the stuff you make blades out of). Morbid Metal is a hack ‘n’ slash, however the distinction right here is that you’ve got four different mech lads at your disposal, and you may morph between them everytime you like. This real-time switching means Morbid Metal strikes in a short time. You may assume hyphenated phrases like “high-octane”, “action-packed”, and “fast-paced” are shifting in the path of this sport, however buddy that is going at such velocity that they’re already right here.
Morbid Metal is, like most video games nowadays, set in a post-human future. You battle “hordes of lethal machines” towards a backdrop of the ruins of humanity, that damage being in a distant sufficient previous that nature has began to reclaim issues. Robots, in fact, are more durable to develop over, particularly once they’re working about a lot.
Each of the characters you possibly can flip into has their very own moveset and particular talent to deal out swift steel justice. The trailer exhibits a heck of quite a lot of aerial juggling, with the participant switching between a samurai-esque character with an extended sword, a slower one with what sort of appears to be like like a large straight razor, and one other who resembles a transformer with weapons. Crash these cereal-box-worthy figures into robots and large smashy bosses – however beware the marginally proc-gen world!
You can improve characters and their abilities, however the roguelite kicker is that if you happen to die you lose entry to a bunch of that (presumably characters too? The Steam web page is unclear on that time).
My confession about that is that I feel the motion appears to be like cool, however form of weightless. I like the idea, although, and there is clearly a narrative behind what truly occurred to people. Unless there is not, and the sport simply goes “Dunno meht, robots innum?” – which I’d even have quite a lot of respect for. Look out for this one at an indeterminate level in the longer term; no launch window as but.
