New Gameplay Today – Hypnospace Outlaw
Hypnospace Outlaw had me from the moment I saw its first trailer. I'm fairly immune to nostalgia plays, but something about Tendershoot's earnest and authentic-looking take on '90s internet hit home – from the highly compressed video to its dithered graphics and enthusiastic abundance of rotating gifs. In today's episode of New Gameplay Today, I guide Joe Juba and Leo Vader through much of the game's beta content.
In the game, you play as an online enforcer, whose job is to scour Hypnospace for rule violations. They can include things such as copyright violations, harassment, and countercurrency. When you find violations, you can flag them and get paid. The trick comes down to figuring out where to look for them. Check out the episode for a look at what it's like to be an enforcer, as well as a glimpse at some of the other silly ways you can pass time in the game. You like virtual pets and horrible WinAMP skins...?
Hypnospace Outlaw is set for a late 2018 release on PC.
