Title: The Path to Die
Developer: Cat Logic Games
What type of game is it?
What’s the 30 second elevator pitch?
A tight, top-down combat game with blocking, parrying and directional swipes all tied to input.
What do we like most about it?
The art style and setting are absolutely faultless, from the slate roofing to the clothing of the opposition; it really feels like a lot of effort has gone into the style and feel of the game.
This, and the combat is of a slower, more realistic pace than we would normally find in a top down slasher, or even simply most games of the setting, which tend to go for nutty, turbo-speed offence over a careful defence built around exposing weak-spots and opportunities. That said, the game doesn’t shy away from brutality, with some shots looking more like something from Hotline Miami than one might expect; but then, they are both games about careful timing, albeit with vastly different paces.
When’s it due?
Path to Die doesn’t currently have a release date listed for it. It is currently set to launch for Windows PC when it is ready.
