Hypercharge: Unboxed is a game all about toys coming alive and attacking every single other, which we can only assume is a cunning ruse to traumatise young children. And no 1 can say they do not have it coming.
This is also – coincidentally, we’re confident – a quite excellent premise for a shooter, enabling lots of colourful characters to blow every single other up when prompting you, the player, to reflect on the callous way we treat the smaller sized creatures with which we share our domiciles by forcing you to navigate an typical residence from the point of view of a teeny tiny toy.
The game is taking shape in Steam Early Access now. At its core it is a wave-primarily based co-op shooter, but as of final month developer Digital Cybercherries has added a PvP mode. And if you believed the timing couldn’t get any greater, this week sees ‘The Plague’, a Halloween-themed game mode which is fundamentally Infection (aka Zombie) mode from Halo. Players who begin with the plague ought to infect absolutely everyone else, which is challenging as absolutely everyone else has guns. To aid them out, infected players get added speed and wallhacks displaying the whereabouts of every single living player.
