It is highly unlikely we’ll ever get bored of posting new footage of Cryptic Sea‘s upcoming Hitlers Must Die, part of their No Quarter indie-retro-sadism-mashup compilation. For one, it means we get to say “Hitlers Must Die!” again and again. For two, it looks like this…
Alex Austin and Edmumnd McMillen have very possibly bopped zeitgeist square on the nose with this one. The trouble is, I guess, that it might well overwhelm the rest of No Quarter. So, let’s take a look at some of the other stuff in it.
Here’s the sombre space-phsysics of Odyssey, which could well be what Jim Gruffignol will be playing while the rest of us gun down hundreds of mutant Fuhrers.
Odyssey is the last ‘track’ on the No Quarter compilation, with Hitlers Must Die! the likely first. In between that is this little lot:
Trivium: An action puzzle game with smashing instead of stacking.
Epic Flail: The Earth is under attack from aliens, and only one person can stop them. Well, maybe two but you’re the only one available.
Hext: It’s a word game, ironically hard to sell with words. You will play it and you will like it!
Seedling: Design and grow your own tree.
Can’t wait for this. McMillen and Austin regularly turn out great things for free – so a return to a (semi)commercial project for the first time since the award-snaffling Gish should turn out marvellously. Oh, for a release date.
