As I stumbled through the massive crowd at EVO a game caught my eye. It looked like a side-scrolling version of Madworld, complete with blood popping out against black and white. I also got to talk to co-creator Ben Rutz about it. Though we only covered the beat-em-up portion of the game, I was able to grab some screens for the strategy portion of the game. You can see those after the jump
The gameplay was solid and I loved the how it looked. There were some glitches like my character getting caught on the walls but with a bit of polish, I wouldn’t mind downloading it. My only hope is that the strategy side holds up as well.
It looks as though it’ll be an area based RTS. Units would need to stay on certain squares in order to activate them, such as the money and temple squares. We’ll report on this as more information becomes available
