Humble Games has released a new behind-the-scenes video for their upcoming game Midnight Fight Express, set to come out this month. The video goes more in-depth about the work they did to motion capture all of the content you see when characters are fighting, including how they filmed many of the bosses and even got some of the staff in on the action. It's cool to see a game that isn't full mocap utilize the tech to get this kind of action down pact into the game. Enjoy the video below as the game will be released on August 23rd, 2022.
