Dead End Job

Headup Games have announced that Dead End Job (the twin-stick shooter developed by Ant Workshop) will be released on December 13th in Europe and North America.

Here’s some more details and some screenshots for the game:

Developed by the former lead level designer on Red Dead Redemption, this insane mash-up of Ren & Stimpy meets Ghostbusters puts you in the ethereal boots of Hector Plasm. As a simple salary-specter, employed with the Number One Experts in Paranormal Pest Control, Ghoul-B-Gone — Hector is tasked with ridding the wacky world of meddlesome spectral interlopers. Tag along with our hero for just another day at the office as he heads all over town to offices overrun by spirits, wraith-infested restaurants, and buildings around the rest of town with his trusty ghost bustin’ vacuum pack and trusty ol’ plasma blaster, putting abhorrent apparitions to rest for GOOD!

Lovers of 90’s cartoons, wacky ghost hunting adventures, or cleanliness, will have a literal blast zooming through the vibrantly cartoony, gag ‘till you laugh, procedurally generated world as they suck up unsuspecting spooky pests. Groove to the beats of award-winning composer Wil Morton (of Grand Theft Auto fame) as you rescue residents and chase promotions by wracking up hefty invoices to send to your clients — ghoul by fiendish ghoul!

Stream the game on Twitch and Mixer and get your audience in on the action — integrated interactivity allows your viewers to help you devastate demonic intruders or hinder your assault on the afterlife. Whether you play alone or team up with a haunt-hunting buddy for some seamless drop-in/drop-out split-screen couch co-op action, Dead End Job is sure to keep you coming back for more!

1971 Project Helios

Recotechnology have announced a game for the Nintendo Switch: 1971 Project Helios, a turn-based strategy game which combines modern warfare military tactics and close combat. It will be released in April 2020 in Europe and North America.

Here’s some pre-alpha footage, some details, and the list of key features:

Firearms and vehicles are scarce, conflicts and hostilities have no end, and the terrible freezing cold annihilates friends and foes in its path.
Eight characters have to join forces for a common cause: find an important scientist kidnapped by a massive stratocracy. Along their way they will have to avoid raider attacks, investigate military headquarters, and infiltrate into the territory of a dangerous anti-technological religious sect.

The campaign sets in a frozen world, in which eight people – each one with its own problems and interests – join in a sort of temporary alliance, to find one particular person: Dr Margaret Blythe. On the trail of her whereabouts, they will travel and fight shoulder to shoulder, and they inevitably get to know the others. Depending on some strategic and personal decisions, you will guide this characters right to one of three possible endings.     

  • Tactical Combat. Fight against three different factions, each one with its unique units, strategy and advantages. Soldiers, snipers, slippery bandits, knights immune to cold… Study your enemies, plan out every move and adapt to all confrontations!
  • Exploration. Travel through various locations, from military enclaves to medieval dungeons. There you can search for fulgor, new equipment for your characters, and pieces of information of the world you are in and the factions you face
  • Skill Trees. As you find equipment compatible with each character, you can unlock and upgrade new skills, and combine them to make the perfect builds for your strategy.
  • Resource Management. Use all the fulgor you can find to defreeze your HP, decrease the cooldowns, and reanimate your fallen units.
