    Doorkickers - SWAT meets Frozen Synapse

    This may have gone unnoticed by those who don't read the Flare Path posts. Real time pausable SWAT tactics game, currently in early alpha.



    http://inthekillhouse.com/

    The video should give you a good idea of what to expect. It's early days yet, but what's already there is very playable and quite elegant in its simplicity. $8 gets you the current crop of 22 missions, which don't take long to race through but offer a decent challenge replaying to do better. Future updates are also included, of course. They're looking for a high level of community involvement in shaping the final direction of the game, but definite plans include a mission editor and more detailed unit orders.

    Yeah, looked really good but I'm gonna wait for a more reliable store to buy it in. If only because odds are my credit card company will lock my card again if I make an overseas purchase like this (and I really hate having to call them to explain that the card wasn't stolen and that I just like foreign crap).

    Reminds me of the tactics planning screen of Rainbow Six, which was the best part of the game. Definitely a promising idea.

    You can pay through paypal, though I know that's not everyone's idea of reliable.

    Will be putting some gameplay videos of my own up tomorrow.

    PayPal is an option now, cool. Wasn't when the rps article went up.

    I dislike PayPal, but at least my card doesn't get locked.

    Ok, continuous gameplay videos. Two out of about ten attempts at mission 15.

    Definitely my kind of game. Will keep an eye on this one. looks like a good way to practice tactics as well as strategize your way into every mission.
    very interesting.

    Well after a couple of hours playing the alpha I would say that it is more like Hotline Miami meets Frozen Synapse.

    I was hoping for more tactics and less millisecond precision and memorising spawns... but it's still a nice little game.

    I liked the look of Door Kickers from an earlier Flare Path post and bought it immediately. As JimDigritz said, it's possibly more Hotline Miami than SWAT but there are more features to be added yet which may improve the tactical nature of the game. Nonetheless, I'm quite enjoying it.

    That was the impression I got from the video, even.

    I dunno about Hotline Miami, it's nowhere near as fast paced. Maybe more R6 than SWAT, but I got the impression the devs are aiming for SWAT eventually.

    To be faor, Hotline Miami had a lot in common with SWAT 2. I would actually liken the comparison to that of (non-slowmo) room clearing in a Modern Warfare VS SWAT 3/4.

    In SWAT, you are cool and methodical. You need twitch reflexes, but you also need to mind your arcs and make sure you are handling the slice of the pie you are responsibel for.

    In Modern Warfare/Hotline Miami, you move around like a frantic jackrabbit in a whirling dervish of blood and death.

    This. So much. I always wanted a game like this. Stop me if you heard this one but this looks promising.

    Edit: watched a bit of the video and it definately needs to speed up the gameplay.

    Probably not helped by my obsessive pausing disorder.
