I’ve loved the look of Atomic Heart since its announcement final 12 months and after watching a brand new ten-minute gameplay video I’m glad to say yep, I nonetheless don’t perceive its complete ‘strange Soviet sci-fi theme park turns into horrorhell’ factor. That’s good. This is a spot I need to discover unusual and complicated at first, with its horrible medical robomannequins, its wee strolling buzzsaws, its railway of spinning gondolas, and its miracle goo. Here, see these and extra within the video under, which I’d guess is from proper across the begin of the game.
I’m v. into the excessive kicks from these plastic lads.
I simply need to say: IGN, who’ve the recent scloosie on that video, use the time period “BioShock-on-acid” and I’m so glad to see that “it’s like … on acid!” remains to be alive in 2019. It’s very a lot games writing on Fisherman’s Friend.
Atomic Heart is because of launch on Steam in the direction of the tip of 2019, pushed again from a deliberate 2018 launch.
Mundfish launched a spin-off teaser game for cybergoggles in July, Soviet Lunapark VR, but it surely was fairly buggy. In December they pulled the cybershooter from sale, saying they’d shut it down solely in March 2019. They said this was so they might concentrate on Atomic Heart itself, and later provided to offer free copies of it to individuals to purchased Soviet Lunapark. It was doubtless wise for a fledgling studio to not juggle two initiatives when one is so formidable, but it surely may additionally have been wise to not begin the second within the first place. This doesn’t fill me with hope for Atomic Heart, although I’m usually happy by games which dream unfeasibly large.
Yeah yeah however what’s up with this “clown trap”?
