Ever wanted to rampage through an alternate version of the ’80s as a pissed off parasitic organism of death? Of course you have, so Troglobytes Games’ newly released rougelite HyperParasite might just be the game for you.
Similar to Enter The Gungeon, the title is hard-hitting and fast-paced, different every run-through, and doesn’t take itself too seriously. The game’s style is unabashedly inspired by the ’80s, poking fun at overused aesthetics from the period. This is driven home by the creators’ description of HyperParasite: “It’s the [’80s] all over again. Only this time, the human race has more than an obnoxious pop culture to contend with.”
The game’s premise is simple enough; You play as a big, evil parasite that possesses human hosts and unleashes havoc. Subsequently, the player gets to enjoy a wealth of 60 unique characters. The only catch is that you have to destroy humanity with them, but you know, humanity probably had it coming.
Already, the game has gathered a “Very Positive” review average on Steam – a promising start for the indie game. Reviewers are praising HyperParasite for it’s challenging boss battles, cool synthwave soundtrack, and vast amount of unlockables.
Although some argue that the game has weak story elements and repetitive tasks, the primary aim is that of any good rougelite – creating a highly-replayable, addicting experience for its players. For those interested in exploring the new title, give it a gander.
