‘Brigador Killers’ Coming This Year
- Will be available on Steam.
- Completely self-funded.
- Cutscenes are presented in graphic novel format.
Developer Stellar Jockeys, with Gausswerks, are expected to release their upcoming violent isometric action mecha indie title Brigador Killers sometime this year on PC via Steam. Players familiar with 2016’s Brigador will find a new planet, revised controls, and an all new storyline mode to enjoy. Brigador Killers focuses on a secret hit team of Solo Nobreans put to get revenge on their traitors deep in enemy territory, while also trying to get out alive.
The story of Brigador Killers will give the players two options on how they’d like to play. The first option slows players to enjoy the campaign with graphic novel style cutscenes by artist Simon Roy, who many may know for working on Prophet and Habitat. The other is called a Free Fire option, which will provide unconstrained gameplay challenges, and that brings for tactics destruction of Brigador to a more personal infantry scale. Development of this title began back in 2017, and the developers took the feedback they received from the first title, in order to build upon the strengths, and to address the criticism. Much like the first entry, Brigador Killers is completely self-funded, and the developers hope that it provides their fans with more of what they loved. Other features are as follows:
- A huge variety of equipment and vehicles to choose from – now from infantry-scale all the way to the huge mechs and tanks from Brigador
- Completely destructible environments, set on the homeworld of the most hated megacorporation in Solo Nobre
- High detail, hand-crafted sprites, lit using dynamic lighting, and seen close-up for the first time in Brigador Killers’ infantry modes
- A compelling narrative-driven campaign, complemented by the fan-favourite high-intensity gameplay of Brigador’s Freelance mode, updated and refined
- Original soundtrack by Makeup and Vanity Set
- Tie-in novel by Brad Buckmaster, author of Brigador (2016) and the Contractor series of novellas (available on Amazon)
