Recently Pieces Interactive was excited to reveal their newest title known as Kill to Collect. This is an 80’s cyberpunk rogue-like featuring up to four-player co-op and is currently scheduled to arrive on Steam in Spring 2016.
To help get players excited about the game, they’ve unveiled a brand new teaser trailer that gives us a look at the game’s backstory, as well as the bounty hunters in the game. Check it out below:
Here’s a quick idea of the story, as presented on the official press release:
Kill to Collect takes place in Geoshelter Alpha, the last known city on Earth, where the lawless slums of the Deeper Levels are overrun by corrupt megacorps, criminals and degenerates. In this dystopian society, hired bounty “Hunters” stand as the last semblance of order in the midst of chaos. Players will choose from a ragtag team of four Hunters, each with their own unique abilities and fighting styles to help them defeat enemies and collect bounties. Whether their weapons of choice are swift swords, iron fists, riot guns, or even electrocution, the goal is simple: kill to collect.
The game is thematically inspired by classics such as Ghost in the Shell, aiming to deliver an action-packed, top-down journey filled with three different game modes and a variety of weapons for the player to discover and unlock. The developers boast that Kill to Collect will supply players with a strong replay value, thanks to the multitude of different combinations of weapons, strategies, and teammates.
David Rosén, CEO of Pieces Interactive, stated, “We set out to create a challenging action rogue-like with a rad, retro theme that gamers can jump into easily for shorter, adrenalized sessions. In addition to the kick-ass 80’s vibe, Kill to Collect distinguishes itself through complex and immediate combat decisions – you don’t have time to stand around and ponder choices. The quick movements and hard-hitting action keep up a great momentum that just feels good!”
