GOOD SHEPHERD ENTERTAINMENT TO PUBLISH SUPERSCARYSNAKES’ DYSTOPIAN ROGUELIKE ACTION SHOOTER BLACK FUTURE ‘88 ON WINDOWS PC, MAC IN 2018
AMSTERDAM – March 14, 2018 – Good Shepherd Entertainment has revealed it will publish independent developer SuperScarySnakes’ synth-punk 2D roguelike action shooter Black Future ‘88 later this year on Windows PC and Mac.
Black Future ‘88’s neon-lit retro-future style paints a dark alternate history of a world reeling from a nuclear cataclysm created by Duncan, the tower architect. The first of his bombs fell in 1988, blacking out the sun with perpetual rain; it’s been 1988 ever since. Now the only time that matters is measured in minutes left to live. As one of the last remaining survivors, fight your way to the top of the tower to kill Duncan before your heart explodes.
Climb an evolving procedural tower through a merciless onslaught of fire, lasers and steel. Shoot, slash and dash to overcome deadly traps, homicidal AI, crazed junkies and colossal boss-grade Wardens. Choose one of five playable characters, each with their own unique powers, then upgrade your renegade with a selection of dozens of brutal weapons and special buffs/curses to survive. Test your wits and reflexes alone or with a friend in two-player couch co-op, and measure your mettle against other players by tackling daily challenges with unique attributes to climb the global leaderboard.
Black Future ‘88’s anarchic ascent for revenge is scored with a killer analog-synth original soundtrack from post-punk new-wave band Tremor Low.
@Seth: that's a shame. I think it was a victim of its own hype. Was like the only good thing shown back when xbone was announced and then took forever to release. (15 Hours ago)
@jmd749: sure, didn't even knew that wthy were going to do a vr version. fuck that shit, do borderlands 3 already, magic randy! you filthy liar. (1 Day ago)
Also it doesn't help the fact how zoomed out is the camera. You barely see shit most of the time. Deleted it after 4 hours. -_- (1 Day ago)
@Nietzsche: Below is the most monotonous game i have played in last years.The game want to be DS and survival game at the same time and fails at both of these things. (1 Day ago)
@MrWhite: It's good free marketting for the game though. (1 Day ago)
Basically, it was a hatchet job of a review, awarding it a 3/10. They realised they fucked up and pulled it sharpish. Damage was done, though. (1 Day ago)
of course, he was talking bollocks. Had he played it for more than 5 minutes, or spent more than 2 looking in the options for the settings, he could have sorted everything out, but he's clearly inept (1 Day ago)
