In the history of blisteringly bloody and violent top-down games, Cannon Fodder’s twitching wounded and almost everything in Hotline Miami will receive dedicated chapters, but Survivor Squad’s trailer sees the game vying for more than a footnote. The randomly generated levels are soon splattered with the red stuff, wall to wall, as the player seeks survivors, rescuing them and building a team of up to four to scavenge, shoot and survive. The pace is fast but caution is necessary, as characters left alone, with no line of sight to their companions, are likely to be swarmed and devoured. Being devoured is the opposite of surviving. Trailer below.
Survivor Squad is out next month.
