For those fortunate enough to live through the 80’s and 90’s, a fond recollection of action movies exists. They were over the top, absurd, and entertaining. These themes were also prevalent in games of that time. Developer Alec Stamos’s newest game, Cold Vengeance, is a 3D run-and-gun shooter that brings players back to that era. A sequel to Venusian Vengeance, the game is set in the year 200X.
A totalitarian government has risen to power in Canada. They’ve kidnapped the President of the United States, launched a surprise attack on America, and bombed major cities while sending in an army of robots. But that’s not all; they’ve formed an alliance with the mysterious Ninja Empire. Players step into the boots of Sgt. Jon Dagger, a lone soldier who must travel through the ruins of America and into the frozen tundra that is Canada. The mission is to save the President. Fear not, our hero isn’t alone in this task. He’ll be joined by a former Soviet engineer who has uploaded himself into the brain of Sgt. Dagger. Players will run and gun their way through a variety of environments while fighting Canadian soldiers, post-apocalyptic barbarians, ninjas, and robots.
Cold Vengeance is currently up for voting on Steam Greenlight. The game is excepted to launch mid-2016 for both PC and Mac. No official pricing details have been released yet. To learn more about the game and developer Alec Stamos visit his official website, Facebook, and Twitter.
