Housemarque’s Twin-Stick Shooter Nex Machina Launching June 20th
Housemarque Games, the studio behind Resogun, Alienation and Matterfall, today revealed that the upcoming arcade shooter, Nex Machina, will launch on June 20th for the PlayStation 4 and PC. Working in collaboration with Eugene Jarvis, creator of Robotron 2048 and Smash TV, the game is a tribute to the arcade classics of the 1980s.
In Nex Machina, humans have become deeply dependent on technology, while around them, machines have reached consciousness and surpassed human intelligence ten-fold. The machines turn on their creators and make it their mission to eradicate human life.
Additionally, Housemarque today announced local co-op play for the game. Staying true to the old-school arcade halls, local co-op will be included at Nex Machina’s launch, allowing players to compete against one another or work side by side to achieve victory.
