Enigmatic game creator 6e6e6e has released new footage from their upcoming challenging sci-fi action-exploration game Radio the Universe. It shows off a dangerous, red-lit dungeon full of mech-spiders and patrolling drones.
If you’re not familiar with the game, Radio the Universe was successfully funded on Kickstarter in January 2013. In fact, it smashed the funding goal of $12,000, raising $81, 719 in total.
What’s the appeal, then? Well, simply put, it’s a combination of The Legend of Zelda and dark science fiction. It has SNES-style visuals, challenging dungeons, and an offbeat story. It’s about a nameless woman who ventures across a desolate labyrinth-city for reasons as of yet unknown.
It has a somber and expansive world to explore, full of robotic dangers, shortcuts, and environmental hazards. It also has a module-based character progression system in which you arrange upgrade pieces on a grid, with certain patterns granting new abilities and bonuses.
