Developer Unepic_Fran and publisher Versus Evil announced today that their 2D action game, UnMetal which parody’s the Metal Gear franchise will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and popular PC stores Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG on September 28th. Take a look at the trailer to get an idea of what to expect.
Players assume the role of Jesse Fox, a civilian inadvertently embroiled in an unplanned mission to prevent an attack on NATO. Shot down, captured and questioned, Fox needs a way out with all the cunning and guile he can muster.
Players conduct their subterfuge to escape incarceration by combining and crafting various objects discovered in the game world, including toilet paper (unscented, unpatterned and single ply), circuit boards, rusty wire and even a guards eye patch and glass eye.
Distraction, sabotage and combat will all come into play, and Fox will encounter a variety of adversaries including enemy soldiers, attack dogs, hungry rats and bigger more formidable heavily armed military hardware like tanks.
The ability to level up with new found skills improving attributes like strength and speed and completing various sub challenges in the game improve the chances of success though.
