Indie studio Exkee wants you to Kill the Bad Guy


10:45 AM on 03.06.2014



When we hear about new titles being approved on Steam Greenlight, it is usually a small handful of games that have received a fair amount of buzz, buried in a group of otherwise unknown games. One such title that previously slipped past our radar was Exkee's Kill the Bad Guy. It is understandable that we missed it in that batch; it was only on Greenlight for two days before being approved in February.

The color palette is a bit reminiscent of MadWorld, taking place in a mostly monochrome world that becomes accented by inevitable gratuitous blood spatter. Gameplay in Kill the Bad Guy is a bit more cerebral, focusing on the creation of environmental traps made to look like freak accidents. Eventually, players set off a chain of events that all lead the target into the kill zone. Don't feel bad about it, the guy being killed is bad. He probably deserves it.

Following its Greenlight success, Kill the Bad Guy is now up on Kickstarter, shooting for $60,000 as its initial goal. According to the campaign, it is very close to completion. In contrast with most videogame crowdfunding efforts, Exkee expects to release it in just a couple months -- May of this year -- pending successful funding.

Review: Gunman Clive 2

I don't think anyone, including the game's creator, expected Gunman Clive to be such a massive hit. As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more

February's Xbox One Games with Gold is already out

February's the shortest month of the year, but Xbox is artificially lengthening it by spilling it over into January. That's the only way to explain this month's Xbox One Games with Gold already popping up for free on the Xbox...more

1996-style shooter Strafe looks like the start of something great

I've greatly enjoyed the promotional work that's gone into Strafe, also known as STRAFE®, also known as "the goriest shooter of 1996." But beyond the head-exploding live-action throwback trailer, wonderful as that was (h...more
