10Tons Ltd has announced that their top down shooter Time Recoilwill release on Xbox One next month.
Time Recoil is an explosive slow motion top-down shooter. The player is given a super power: Kill to slow time. Killing triggers time slowdown, and additional kills extend the slowdown period and charge a special move. The more the player is able to kill, the more powerful the special move becomes, all the way to full time freeze.
Time Recoil is a story of rebellion and revenge. The player is a member of a rebel organization fighting against a mad scientist dicator, Mr. Time. The rebels use a time machine to travel through time to locate and eventually kill Mr. Time - before he finds the rebels and destroys them. ”PC gamers have played Time Recoil for a couple of weeks now, and it’s been great hearing everyone say the game reminds them of Hotline Miami, SUPERHOT, and/or Mr. Shifty. Each of those great games inspired Time Recoil in some way, while we obviously have tons of experience in top-down shooters.” says Sampo Töyssy, Vice CEO of 10tons and Time Recoil team lead.
It's an interesting new concept and we'll have to see how it plays out. We'll have our review of the game as soon as it comes out. You can pre-order the game here now for $13.99, but a launch discount of 25% will be available for a few days on release. Time Recoil will release on September 15th.
