Fowl Play: Humans Must Answer

By Adam Smith on November 5th, 2012 at 7:00 pm.

When GSC Game World ceased to be and Stalkers across the world wept in anguish, Denis Matveenko and Eugeny Yatsuk left their positions at the company and set off into the indiezone to develop an open world survival-based RPG. Or at least that’s what they would have done if they were following the script that the Lords of Gaming had written for them. Instead, they’re making Humans Must Answer, a side-scrolling shooter starring a bunch of space-faring chickens at war with the human race. It’s an attractive beast and the latest video explains the tactical choices faced by a poultry pilot.

Attaching shotguns to spaceships is big and clever.

      Is it a gun that shoots cannons? Because I would trade all of my things for that.

    I’m guessing it has a poultry plot, it’s not eggsactly rocket science.

    I reckon the odds of a pun thread kicking off here are pretty small.

    Love it. :-)

    PC shmuppers need more games in the Hydorah / Jets n Guns mould.

    Stop taunting me with talk of stalker. I am still only at the bargaining stage of the grief cycle. Or maybe denial. No I’m not. Yes I am.

    Leave me alone. And don’t mention tuna.

    Hmm, somehow the graphics remind me of Jets&Guns (which is a good thing).
