Swarming The Cockles Of My Heart: Primal Fears

When gangs of monsters swarm toward my position, which happens more frequently than you might imagine, I try to distract them by starting a conversation about Bradley Wiggins' sideburns and the possible resurgence of the other type of mod. If that doesn't work, I curl into a ball and hope they'll leave me alone after they've chewed on my torso for a while. There's another solution though and it's a much more efficient survival technique. Like many before him, the hero of top-down shooter Primal Fears practices the traditional combat tactic of spinning around and running backwards while shooting. The game is due in January and you can see it in action below.

I wonder what it's all about?

Not sure exactly what you are facing, Primal Fears harkens to the depths of the human psyche as you fight monstrous foes alone or with friends. Nothing is more scary than the unknown and it is your goal to reveal the truth...

It seemed quite clear to me that the enemies were mutated, overgrown testicles that have become disgruntled about something or other and then sprouted limbs for good measure. Could that be the terrible truth that our top-down trooper will uncover?

Probably not.
