Following last year’s Probably Archery, Matthew and Shane Carr of South East Games have returned to the latest 7DFPS Jam with Paint The Town Red. A first person brawler in which the blood goes fsssssh.
You can play Probably Archery right now, or try to at least. The intentionally harrowing control scheme might prevent you from fully engaging with the sizeable demo for half an hour or so, as you flail and windmill your arms in an attempt to notch an arrow onto a bowstring. Recently Greenlit, Probably Archery is William Tell* by way of Surgeon Simulator and the demo contains various scenarios, ably showcasing the blend of QWOP-like mechanics with a dollop of Serious Sam and a pinch of Magritte. The full version, we’re now told, will contain extensive multiplayer shenanigans, which should provide tension and hilarity. One mode even takes inspiration from DayZ. Don’t eat any rotten apple-heads.
