New Blip: Tower 57

Tower 57 is a colorful isometric top-down shooter from Germann developer Marco Pappalardo, a.k.a. Benitosub. The game is set in an 1920's art deco style cyberpunk world where people live in huge towers above a radioactive wasteland and are constantly at war with another. You discover that Tower 57 is planning an invasion, and you set out to put a stop to it, along with a friend if you like, in 2P offline co-op. Players have access to a wide range of weaponry, including Tommy guns, shotguns, lasers, electricity beams, rocket launchers, and flamethrowers as they take on robots, turrets, and even the occasional dinosaur (and maybe even ride one!). The wasteland is dangerous, and it's even possible to lose a limb during a fight, although there are terminals selling replacement prosthetics... but losing both arms leaves you unable to hold a weapon.

After completing a successful Kickstarter campaign, the game is headed to PC, Mac, and Linux in March.
