Housemarque, the developer behind the fantastic Resogun, have revealed fresh details about their upcoming follow up to the twin stick shooter.
“One of the main draws to Alienation from a developer’s perspective is the challenge of creating an excellent multiplayer dynamic.” explained Housemarque. “Since the game features three main character classes, plenty of loot, and a ton of weapon customizations, the number of different team setups is astronomical.”
The developer is very keen to point out that this is going to be a multiplayer experience, with a lot of emphasis being placed on character customisation to give you and your team an advantage over “the beasts from beyond” and that a “run-and-gun strategy will get you a few victories, but will not win the war”.
One thing that I have taken away from the screenshots, as well as the description from Housemarque, is that the game looks and sounds like it could play a lot like the recently released Helldivers. The developer has confirmed that there will be more news on the game coming sooner rather than later, and have also released footage of a co-op game.
