Right here at Troglobytes, we had been all born within the 1980s, surrounded by popular culture that was characterised by tacky motion films and traditional video video games. You’ll be able to inform that by taking a look at our small studio — the partitions are plastered with motion film posters and we additionally accumulate classic consoles and video games from that period.
We have now an arcade cupboard within the workplace with Avenging Spirit working on it. Sooner or later, as we had been taking a break from creating and getting our repair of retro gaming, we had been all of the sudden struck by its idea: you performed as a ghost that might possess varied characters.
We then requested ourselves: why don’t we make a recreation that options the entire greatest issues we liked from the 1980s: wrestlers, aliens, renegades, inexperienced berets, and many others., mixed with the possession mechanics?
With so many nice choices to select from, we weren’t capable of resolve who the protagonist of this recreation could possibly be, and that’s how HyperParasite got here to be: a recreation in which you’ll management all of them!
With HyperParasite, we needed to take gamers on a journey to the darkish aspect of the 1980s: neglect about heroes; in our recreation, you can be enjoying the dangerous man, and the nice guys are the enemies. Have you ever ever dreamt of preventing in opposition to your favorite 1980s characters? Then HyperParasite is the sport for you.
You’ll be able to snatch and management any character on the display screen, exploiting its personal distinctive talents, weapons and particular assaults in a neon and mullet-based mega-brawl.
With a purpose to immerse you on this ambiance, we wanted just a few issues: retro graphics and SynthWave music, mixed with relentless motion, permadeath (typical of rogue-like/rogue-lite video games) and deranged bosses.
The sport that you may now play on Ps 4 is the results of three years of exhausting work; we put all the pieces we had into it, and we made it as a heartfelt love letter to the 80s. Seasoned gamers may also really feel multiple similarity with previous classics, and we’re fairly certain you’ll acknowledge each single cameo, and reference, we put into the sport.
