Playing as a Samurai-like assassin, Katana Zero is a stylish platformer that channels the likes of Hotline Miami. It features a neo noir and '80s aesthetic through its pixelated graphics, and is supported by bloody and fast combat.

You slash, sneak, walljump and use items around your environment such as throwing pottery to overcome your enemies. You also have nifty time manipulation powers as you progress through what developer Askiisoft calls a "fractured city."

Katana Zero releases later this year for PC and Mac. You can view its Steam page by heading here.
