Revolution Action: Gridrunner Revolution Imminent

We haven't talked about Jeff Minter's new game in a while. When it was still being called Gridrunner+++, we made it one of our Unknown Pleasures for 2009. It's since been re-named Gridrunner Revolution and is inching closer to its release date. You'll be able to get it from the 25th and review code is starting to distribute. First to actually talk about it is head Retroremakes bob Oddbob who explains why this is looking like a really interesting shooter. More after I've had a bit more time with the code, but until then, here's some footage of the game in action...

Firstly, in the Korma difficulty mode, which is equivalent to easy.

And this is the Vindaloo difficulty mode, which is equivalent to hard.

There's also Phaal above that, which is proper mental, both as a difficulty level in the game and as a way to eat your curry.

Two final points:
1) I almost lobbed the Revolution Action video by ATR here, but someone would have probably have taken offence. Boo!
2) Doing this post with the smell of curry wafting throughout my house is a synaesthetic joy.
