My.Games and Allods Team Arcade have announced a new 2D action-adventure title called Blast Brigade vs the Evil Legion of Dr. Cread. The game is being developed for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam. The development team is targeting a 2021 release date. It will be available for $19.99 on release.
The game is inspired by “popcorn action movies from the 80s” and provides players with run ‘n gun gameplay combined with Metroidvania world exploration. Players put together a team of four playable heroes, each complete with their own strengths and weaknesses. The party can be switched out at will and players will be able to upgrade weapons, take on challenging bosses, and “prevent doomsday”.
Players will be controlling four different characters during the course of the game:
- The American Jeff (J. Jefferson), who has never found a problem he can’t blast his way out of. Using his trusty grenade launcher, Jeff is an all-American hero who always charges into headlong confrontations with evil-doers and villains.
- Soviet KGB Agent Alexandra “Shura” Voron infiltrates hostile territory with her grappling hook to take out enemies of the motherland with her sniper rifle. A master manipulator and infiltrator, Shura preferably works from the shadows to achieve her goals.
- The Scotsman Gavin Henry Gale or “Galahad” is an MI6 spy that was recently captured by Dr. Cread. After being subjected to horrible experiments at the hands of the Doctor, he managed to escape and now uses his cyborg body to wreak havoc on his foes.
- Holy Sentinel Vartaxaklahun “Vortex” Paqarnusta works with the Blast Brigade to help liberate her island from Dr. Cread. Wielding Chakrams in a spinning dance of death, Vortex also has rudimentary knowledge of the ancient technology of the island.
