And that's GTA in the top-down GTA 2 sense with Glitchpunk offering up similar top-down mayhem in a cyberpunk settings. Coming from developer Dark Lord and publisher Daedalic Entertainment it's also set to hit Steam Early Access on August 11. Hit the jump for the trailer.
Definite GTA 2 vibes for sure.
In Glitchpunk you play as a glitching android going against your own programming and challenging the tyrannical governments and megacorps of the dystopian near-future. Forge your own path in several cities full of drug-crazed gangs, aggressive police, and irresponsible drivers that make each mission and playthrough unpredictable. Steal cars and lead your enemies on a merry chase, fight them with a variety of melee and long-range weapons, and upgrade your own body with technology that enables you to manipulate your surroundings or improve your capabilities.
Brutal top-down action with a massive arsenal of weapons to choose from
Hacking system allowing players to control the minds of pedestrians and affect various devices.
Many different ways of locomotion, including trains, tanks, motorbikes, buses, trucks, and obviously tons of cars
Frantic police chases and up to 10 escalations of mayhem-inducing wanted levels
12 gangs with their own stories, quests, and culture
Four different cities, from the desert remains of the USA to cyberpunk Soviet Russia in a post-nuclear winter (two cities at Early Access launch and two more to come!)
Mature story with several endings
Rare art style mix of 2D sprites in a 3D environment
In-game radio with music by artists from all over the world, together with news stations and absurd commercials
Interestingly the angle is also one focused on cyberpunk themes of transhumanism, xenophobia, and religion. The Early access version will launch with two cities - Outpost Texas and New Baltia - with two more coming ahead of the 1.0 launch.
