Samus It Ever Was: Ex Vitro Beta

The beta for indie Metroid-a-like Ex Vitro has been available since the summer failed to sizzle and right now the nibbling gnashers of old Jack Frost tell me that winter has come, so why post about the game now? Because I've just played it for the first time, that's why, and I only found out it exists because there's a new trailer that warbles about sci-fi disasters in a way that intrigued me. The beta is free and with it you'll be able to shoot monstrosities, collect new abilities and read datalogs that tell a history of grim failings. The art reminds me of Waking Mars but the game is as much action as exploration.

No release date for the full version yet.
