Bite the Bullet

Graffiti Games have announced that Bite the Bullet will be released on August 13th in Europe and North America. It will be available for pre-purchase starting next week, and it will cost $14.99.

Here’s the latest trailer for the game, along with some more details and an updated list of key features:

Bite the Bullet is the world’s first Run & Gun & Eat. In this roguelite RPG shooter players must eat enemies, bullets and more to powerup their character, weapons, and abilities. Gun down zombies, robots and giant mutant bosses with a barrage of bullets before chowing down on their corpses to craft new weapons, unlock new abilities and special attacks, and transform into a powerful Zombro form to smash foes. Explore four character classes and a skill tree based on a player’s selected diet – and remember, you are what you eat!

  • Devour enemies to powerup Chewy/Chewella, weapons, and abilities.
  • Chow down on everything – enemies, walls, even bullets.
  • Play solo or with a friend in local co-op.
  • Four character classes (Carnivore, Herbivore, Omnivore, and Robovore – which means eating metal) that have their own unique abilities and perks.
  • Gorge on 50 levels.
  • Character customizations with a deep, branching skill tree.
  • Loot powerful weapons with fun modifiers such as Spicy Critter Cannons.
  • Craft exotic new weapons by wolfing down special types of characters and enemies.
  • Eat enemies to energize skills and special attacks.
  • Use a highly advanced shield for protection from oncoming fire or knock enemies away.
  • Earn action hero bandanas by fully completing each world.
  • Chew carefully – every enemy has its own nutritional information, and a body type will change based on the types of enemies consumed.
  • Transform into the powerful Zombro form and smash enemies into bite-sized bits.

Bite the Bullet (Switch – eShop) comes out on August 13th in Europe and North America.

Guilty Gear @ shmuplations

The latest translation from shmuplations is a couple of interviews about the original Guilty Gear game. Click here to check them out!

These two interviews cover the development of the original Guilty Gear, an idiosyncratic and extremely ambitious 2D fighting game released exclusively for the PlayStation by Arc System Works, a veteran studio that heretofore worked primarily and almost solely on un-credited work-for-hire projects.

Developed by a small handful of newcomers dubbed “Team Neo Blood” and led by the visionary Daisuke Ishiwatari, Guilty Gear’s aggressive heavy metal aesthetic and maniacal, forward-thinking mechanics quickly cultivated a passionate fan base and led to several sequels and spin-offs across various genres which continue to test the limits of animation, visual identity and player-led character expression to this very day.
