Party like it’s 1996 all over again, as Strafe is now available on PC and PS4. What’s all the fuss about? Click through and check out why this FPS is a love letter to the 90s.
With a mode called “Murderzone”, you know this is gonna be good
So, if you couldn’t tell, the vid above was a mock-trailer for a movie version of Strafe. Don’t worry though, that (thankfully) (probably) isn’t a real thing. I think it’s safe to say though, that the sensibilities that developer Pixel Titans is going for with the game itself most definitely comes though.
I mean, there was enough in-game stuff in there that you can get a definite sense of what the game will offer. That being buckets of blood and gore, and plenty of oddball enemies to shoot at. And as someone who played through a good chunk of what the 90s had to offer in the way of PC FPS’, well I have to say it looks spot on.
Pixely 3D graphics aside though, Strafe is a rogue-like at heart, and randomly generates levels as you play. And yes, that means it won’t play the same way twice. Pretty slick for a first-person shooter. Perhaps all of this can be best summed up by publisher Devolver Digital’s CEO Fork Parker though.
He adds ““STRAFE® changes everything you’ve ever known or will know about STRAFE®,” … “It’s the next generation of the last generation and we’re not all that sure gamers will be able to handle that sort of power.”
I agree completely. Strafe is available now on the PC, Mac, and PS4.
