Sporting some seriously over the top action sequences, BulletRage [Official Site] will bring intense twin-stick action to Linux later this year.

Certainty looks like it could be a lot of fun. I'm a big fan of twin-stick shooters, even though there's rather a lot of them out there already they mostly manage to be unique in their own way. BulletRage claims to have an "adaptive gameplay system to push you forward", so I will be interested to see exactly what that does as you progress.

Other features include:

  • 4 Players local co-op
  • 10 playable characters each with a unique playstyle
  • Battle across 6 worlds with over 40 challenging handcrafted levels
  • Every weapon is gratuitously overpowered
  • Dozens of crazy power-ups
  • 5 Difficulty Modes from Casual to Insanity
  • Speed-Run or Destroy-Everything gameplay option

It's currently in Beta and it seems they added Linux builds only this month. You can request Beta access by signing up here, although I've no idea when they send keys out. There's also no clear release date other than it being this year. It will be available on Steam.

That looks absolutely insane! Very fond of this kind of game and 1-4 player co-op is just superb news. Will be wishlisting this for a purchase on release, methinks.

I played Assault Android Cactus a lot (still do), and since I managed to get a S+ in every stage and Boss Rush, I'm ready for a new game on the genre. Let's hope this one is on the same level of fun, since it look like they toke inspiration on AAC.

Not normally interested in twin sticks, but this looks very interesting.
