Cluck You: Humans Must Answer Out Now

By Nathan Grayson on July 12th, 2013.

Fly like a robot eagle, through space. Fly right into the futuuuuuuuuure

This career affords me the option to write about space chickens more often than you’d think, but still not as much as I’d like. It’s a real shame, but this – this right now – is a most eggcellent moment. And getting to namedrop STALKER in the same article? Well that’s just the finger lickin’ chicken’s most prized pickins’ (I’m from Texas, so I’m allowed to talk like that). But yes: Humans Must Answer, a shmup by former STALKER devs where you play as genocidal intergalactic avians, is now officially out. There’s a celebratory trailer that tastes remarkably like chicken right after the break.

Fowl Play: Humans Must Answer

By Adam Smith on November 5th, 2012.

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.

Of Space Chickens And Men: Humans Must Answer

By Nathan Grayson on October 19th, 2012.

Looks just like STALKER, right?

Was my decision to write this story influenced strongly by the fact that I’d get to include the phrase “space chickens” in a headline? Future scholars will argue over the answer to that very question for generations, and they’ll be wasting their time because duh. But eggstraterrestrials galaxy-faring coop-flyers are – believe it or not – only part of what makes Humans Must Answer intriguing. The other half of that equation, then, is the oh-so-silly shmup’s pedigree. Developer Sumom Games, you see, rose from STALKER 2’s irradiated ashes when GSC Game World ceased to be. So now the team’s making shmups starring “intelligent and dangerous chickens,” naturally. Apparently, though, the storyline – which sees said chickens encounter hostile humans – is “subtle and surprising.” I honestly can’t tell if they’re joking.
