Zombie Soup from Aeonsparx Interactive recently popped up on Steam and I have to admit, after watching the trailer I do want to see a lot more from this.
Set in the 80's, the story seems pretty cliché with a young boy coming across a damsel in distress during some sort of Zombie apocalypse. You will need to shoot, loot and dodge your way through the hordes with a promise of reliving the "best time of pop culture".
They actually already have a Linux demo up on itch.io which I tried out and it is quite promising. I can't quite put my finger on why but I got an almost Nintendo-style vibe from this. Aeonsparx Interactive are based in Malaysia, so with English not being their first language the dialogue is quite rough and definitely in need of improvements. If they manage to clear that up, this could be a pretty good shoot and loot adventure.
From what I personally played it was certainly quite peculiar, with a very strange atmosphere to it. The action was pretty amusing though and a bit of a challenge in places, I will give it that. It's sort-of like a dungeon crawler in the layout, as you go from room to room dealing with all sorts of strange creatures, avoiding traps and so on while collecting money to unlock more varied weapons and character classes.
The first boss fight was pretty silly too, a Zombie fishmonger carrying a big fish they swing around at you. Delightfully odd.
You can follow it on Steam and try the Linux demo on itch.io.
