The throwback action title with one-liners, hugely muscled heroes, and waves of expendable bad guys is available now on Steam’s Early Access system.
This looks better and better every time I see it.
Not only does Tango Fiesta have pretty much every trope from the fabulous realm of 80’s action movies covered here, but they alos have procedurally generated levels and boss characters right out of some pretty classic flicks. Take Gordon for instance, does he remind you of anyone who might need to ‘let off some steam’? Fantastic.
Young indie developer Spilt Milk Studios looks like they’re doing a terrific job on Tango Fiesta and keeping it true to the source material, which is some of the most wild and over the top action films of all time. As for the studio itself and publisher Mastertronic, they’re pretty excited to finally be bringing the title home.
Andrew J Smith, founder of Spilt Milk Studios, says, “I’m indescribably happy, and absolutely terrified all at the same time. This game means a lot to everyone working on it – more than perhaps you’d normally associate with an over the top arcade action shooter like this – but I mean it when I say it has been and remains a labour of love. I can’t wait to see what people think of the game, to hear what the fans want from us over the coming months, and to make Tango Fiesta the game we all know it can be. It’s a dream come true for the whole team.”
Andy Payne, CEO of Mastertronic, adds “I am so happy that we have been able to help the Spilt Milk Team bring Tango Fiesta to the world. Everyone has worked so hard and with 100% focus to get the Rezzed 2013 Game Jam build into something really special. It’s been a pleasure and an honour to work with Andrew JS, Gavin, Andrew and Ewan.”
Tango Fiesta is available right now on Steam Early Access, as well as Get Games, for the Mac and PC. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go watch Commando.
