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.
