A new rogue-lite brings on the hype-ocalypse
From developer HandyGames and publisher THQ Nordic comes a new rogue-lite with a edgy twist - Lethal Honor-Order of the Apocalypse. Taking place in a post-apocalyptic world styled after grim and dark 1980s comics it certainly seems frantic and edgy in all the right ways. Here’s what HandyGames themselves has to say about it:
Slay hordes of eldritch creatures in relentless isometric close quarter battles with an art style reminiscent of the 1980s dark age of adult superhero graphic novels. Set in a shady and beset post-apocalyptic world you play various characters to unfold a complex story. With countless abilities, a dozen combat styles, and several secondary mechanics, every run is like a new issue of a comic book series!
Lethal Honor’s progression model is a new take on rogue-lites. Select comic panels are seamlessly integrated into the gameplay to structure your routes passing procedural runs. With every run and every death, you come closer to waking one of the main characters each with their own story to play. Kill or be killed, run or be run over, give in return but never give up!
While no release date is given, this is certainly shaping up to be a rather fun romp with a unique style. Definitely something to look forward to whenever it launches whether this year or next.
