Matrix Of The Trade: Tango Fiesta

By Adam Smith on May 15th, 2014.

Tango Fiesta has come a long way since its birth at the first Rezzed gamejam. Dragging eighties action movies kicking and kersploding into the whateverthehellwecallthisdecade-ties, it’s a top-down shooter that can be played by four fist-bumping muscle-chums at a time. From the jungles of Predator to the desert islands of Paradise Punchout (may not be a real film), the trailer suggests players will be spending their time shooting everything that moves. Apart from other players – cooperation is the keyword here. Well, that and EXPLOSIONS. Early Access begins on June 4th.

Sly: Tango Fiesta Is ‘Rambo – The Alternative Videogame’

By Adam Smith on February 24th, 2014.

Broforce is also an acceptable alternative to Rambo but Tango Fiesta is a Jam success story every bit as invigorating as the (granny) rags-to-riches tale of Mrs Tuppence’s Old-Time Elderberry Preserves.

For a one-screen top-down Arnie-inspired shooter, it was a surprisingly tactical experience, and the full version is to be a “Rogue-like or maybe a Rogue-lite”, according to the developers.

3/5ths Of RPS, Quasi-Live On Stage

By Alec Meer on July 10th, 2012.

Nathan had a good excuse what with being American, but why Jim wasn't involved is AN ETERNAL MYSTERY

Rezzed had many highlights, and it’s faintly possible that insane people believe watching me try to construct a little man out of chewing gum and my own spittle was one of them. This was just one of the many strange and possibly dangerous tasks in the live trial by that was the 5th International Indie Mudwrestling Championships, an on-stage panel show hosted with golden-voiced aplomb by Mr John Walker. Adam Smith and I headed up a team respectively, with ample support from indie devs Andrew J Smith of Spilt Milk and Dave Johnston of Smudged Cat. Surprisingly, at no juncture were we booed off stage. We had a live pun thread, Adam and I almost exploded, we listened to the Donkey Kong rap and John kept forgetting that RPS only covers PC games.

Watch our mouths move and words come out of them, sometimes followed by the reassuring sound of laughter, below.
