During this years PlayStation Experience 2016 the development team over at Housemarque have unveiled a new game they are currently developing in the form of Nex Machina.
The new Nex Machina PlayStation 4 game was announced complete with a new trailer providing a glimpse at what you can expect from the new game. Check it out embedded below.
Mikael Haveri from Housemarque explains more :
A few months after the release of Resogun we bumped into Eugene Jarvis at DICE Summit 2014, where he received a Pioneer award for his contribution to the gaming industry. Eugene, creator of arcade cult classics such as Defender, Robotron, and Smash TV, has always been one of our major sources of inspiration for the kind of games we are famous for.
You can see Eugene’s invisible hand in the gameplay of Dead Nation, Alienation, and — of course — Resogun, which is Defender’s “spiritual successor.” What makes both of our philosophies resonate is that we believe games should be fun, fast, and brutal.
We stayed in touch. He played Resogun. And when we asked if he wanted to do something together, he jumped on board without hesitation. We are now proud to show you the result of that collaboration. What was called for a long time “the Jarvis Project” we can now reveal as Nex Machina (Which, roughly translated, means Death Machine) — the most explosive top-down action shooter Housemarque has ever created.
Taking hints from both Robotron and Smash TV, Nex Machina focuses on pure arcade action, voxel destruction, and competition. But before delving into more of that, I want to talk about the game’s setting. In a world where humans have become more and more addicted to technology, machines have evolved from simple helpers to replacements for unwanted jobs — conscious entities with their own feelings. Robots surpassed mankind’s abilities, becoming the superior being, and started to refuse to serve us.
After the singularity, the rise of the machines was inevitable — and unstoppable. But nobody even noticed. Mankind’s best and brightest were too busy updating their status on social media. When all seems lost, out of the blue a mysterious hero appears: you. Who sent you? Will you save humanity from itself once again? And last but not least, are your skills sharp enough to confront an army of fiendish robots out for blood?
