Parrylicious: Yatagarasu Attack On Cataclysm Released

Punch!

Nothing starts Tuesday night off right quite like a fight as far as I'm concerned. But if you're not near The Grapes in Edinburgh, you might fancy a crack at Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm [official site]. (If you are - see you around half-nine? BYOK.) The face-puncher is made by some former King of Fighters folks and draws inspiration from Street Fighter III, set against a story of revolution in 1920s Japan. It launched today for your punching pleasure.

As fighting games are far from my forte, at this point I'm happy to turn you over to the capable face-punchers Shoryuken and their review. Heck, you know what, I'll quote from their conclusion, then if you're interested you can go read the rest:

"Attack on Cataclysm takes a lot of design themes and inspirations from a bygone era, and applies them without conceding to the design pitfalls that plagued games from that time period. It plays out with a strong emphasis on player decision, and keeps things simple while leaving tons of room for depth to emerge."

Sounds good, that. Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm is out for £10.99 on Steam and Humble Store (who bung you a Steam key as well as a DRM-free version). Here's an old, old trailer because the newer ones are even less useful:
