Indie game developer Luke Rissacher has announced the launch of his new rogue-lite game, Weapon Hacker. It is available right now in the Steam store. It is selling for $14.99.
Weapon Hacker is a rogue-lite indie game with a seemingly-similar vibe to the Metroid series of platformer games. In the game players will spend a lot of their time scavenging for discarded or scrapped weapons and turning them into more useful implements of death and destruction for their own needs. Players are encouraged to scour as much of the procedurally-generated sci-fi dungeons as possible in order to defeat enemies and find even more weaponry to make use of.
This game did not end up half-hearted either; it seems because with the amount of different weapon customization options, players can make upwards of nearly 100 sextillion different weapons in this game (that's one "1", and 21 zeros, which, as you can imagine, is a whole lot of weapons!). Players eager to kill aliens will find hours and hours of fun in playing this indie game.
Key features, according to Luke Rissmacher, include the following:
- Unique facility each time you play
- Optimized engine, smooth on any PC
- Procedurally generated Metroid-style exploration
- Tight, fast-paced platforming
- Honed by thousands of hours of playtesting & feedback
