The lights are on
In a behind-the-scenes video, Housemarque developers talk about the philosophy and technology behind their upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Resogun.
The developers describe the game's focus on gameplay and high scores, instead of characters and story. As a spiritual successor to Super Stardust, another game developed by the studio, Resogun is about pure action.
Players are meant to replay levels over and over to perfect their skills and improve their leader board rankings. The game also draws inspiration from old-school side-scrolling shooters like Defender and Data Storm.
To further encourage players to blow up everything in sight, the entire world of Resogun is built from small bricks called voxels. Destroying an enemy will cause it to explode into dozens of tiny cubes. Doing the same thing to a legion of enemies will result in an even bigger spectacle.
Resogun will be available for download when the PlayStation 4 launches on November 15 and will be free for PlayStation Plus members. Check out the behind-the-scenes video as well as a short video showing off the game's location concept art below.
Be sure to keep up with the rest of the PS4 lineup.

People gonna cry complain & everything else. But i understand the frustration sike. It's not your fault that your a underachiever.
The nostalgia of this and the pretty graphics. It's also free for PS Plus members so that's a win for me.
Reminds me of Retro Evolved with all the lights.
This to me is very reminiscent of Geometry Wars on 360(which I played the hell out of)and that is most certainly a good thing.
I'm really looking forward to playing this after we check out Killzone: Shadow Fall.
I was checking this because I know I'll be getting it free with PS+. Kinda disappointed though. Looks pretty, but I have never really enjoyed games that exist only for the purpose of high scores. I'll give it a shot, but I'm glad I will have plenty of other options next week.
looks good, but why does it say its coming 2014?
