So, let’s say you’ve been incredibly dismayed at the recent reveal of Black Ops 2. You can’t stand the thought of playing yet another realistic shooter with weapon limits and health regeneration. You crave the days of color, creativity, and jumping across thirty-feet chasms with the press of a button. Well then, my friend, your remedy has been quick and effective. Wrack is here, and it’s ready to rock your world until it spews gravy.
Wrack is an old-school FPS developed by indie studio Final Boss Entertainment that puts you in the role of Kain Sager, a self-proclaimed badass who takes it upon himself to save the world from an alien invasion. The game features a beautifully realized cel-shaded world filled with color and character. A level editor will be included both in the full game and with a pre-order, and there’s even an arcade-style scoring system in place that adds immense replayability to levels as well as the potential for a competitive community. As for the action itself, what can I say? An imaginative arsenal is at your disposals, with powerful shotguns, swords, lasers, and other cool toys available. The enemies are varied and interesting, and there are some cool boss fights sprinkled into the already well-designed levels. Check out the gameplay commentary below to see what I mean.
You can check out more info about the game at it’s official site, which can be viewed here. While Final Boss is not yet taking pre-orders yet, you can follow them on Facebook and Twitter to know when they will. Let’s try to spread the word to form a gathering of old-school FPS fans. Insert joke about “Wrack City” here.
