Indie game developer Mommy's Best Games (MBG) will be releasing its intense, high-score shoot’em up Game Type DX later this year for Xbox One/X, PS4/PS5, and Nintendo Switch.
Game Type DX is a score-attack shoot’em up with a speed-boosting twist. Help Hoodie Girl fight the evil MediaBall's inane advertisements! Each time you beat a level, the speed and difficulty increases! Originally released as a protest against Microsoft’s terrible dashboard update in 2011, and now, remastered and enhanced for extreme fun!
“Back in 2011, we made Game Type to shine a light on the problem of discoverability on the Xbox 360”, says lead designer Nathan Fouts. “After a major update to their menu system, Indie Games were effectively buried”, Fouts remarked. “We quickly created a satirical take on the problem and generated lots of media attention. It was an incredible feeling to know that our little shooter helped push Microsoft to make a change and fix their broken Dashboard menu.”
Kruger & Flint Productions announced today that its fast and brutal First Person Shooter Bloodhound, will premiere on Xbox and PC in 2022. The new indie shooter is a work of developers previously involved in the creation of Dying Light 2, Witchfire or Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3. Check out the official trailer.
The new shooter title is a debut project created by indie studio Kruger & Flint Productions. The team is made of experienced creators, who had previously worked on games with reputable Polish producers (Techland, The Astronauts and CI Games).
Bloodhound is a first-person shooter reminiscent of classic titles, focused on dynamic and uncompromising arcade action.In the main campaign mode, the player takes up the role of a member of a secret faction of the Templar Order and fights to stop the demonic cult of Astaroth.
“It is a game created out of passion – the kind we would like to play. It’s brutal, it’s intense and there’s blood. It’s all served in a heavy, horror reminiscent atmosphere. Our main inspirations were Doom, Quake and Painkiller, but we also reached the work of Zdzisław Beksiński, rich in decay centric pieces and apocalyptic motives” – said Rafał “Flint” Krzemiński, CEO, Kruger & Flint Productions.
The final version of Bloodhound offers a campaign made of 4 acts; diverse and terrifying locations, as well as 15 types of enemies and 4 bosses. The player will be aided by 10 types of weapons (including a machete, flamethrower attached chainsaw, shotgun, railgun, crossbow and missile launcher). The creators are in the middle of creating additional game modes (arena and multiplayer).
“A free demo has been made available on Steam. It includes one training area and it’s the first taste of what’s yet to come from Bloodhound” – said Jakub “Kruger” Kubiak, producer, Kruger & Flint Productions.
Meanwhile, an fundraiser is running on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, meant to support the game’s further development.
