Jumping from jet to jet is business as usual in JetGetters


8:00 PM on 03.13.2014



TinyBuild has taken to Kickstarter for JetGetters, a ridiculous multiplayer game in which players fly jets around and shoot at one another until they decide to leap out of said vehicle, fire their gun while in a freefall, and hook onto an opponent's jet before taking it over. Also, you can ride on top of your friends' jets. Also, you can hijack missiles. What?

It'll make slightly more sense once you watch the .gifs on the Kickstarter page and/or the pitch video, embedded above. It's clear the team's goal is to make pulling off all of the aforementioned actions relatively simple, which I appreciate. There are different character classes, so building out a balanced team and using strategy will be key.

The idea for JetGetters was born out of a 2012 conversation about Battlefield 3 and Just Cause 2. That says it all. If TinyBuild can deliver, this ought to be loads of fun.

Mighty Tactical Shooter is a rad looking turn-based shmup

Usually when one thinks about shmups, precision motor skill and quick reaction are what come to mind. Mighty Tactical Shooter turns that completely on its head. Though precision movement and shot placement is still required,...more

The Deer God funded, now coming to Wii U and Xbox One too

Did you get your pledge in for The Deer God? I didn't, because these days I try to severely limit the number of projects I back on Kickstarter, but damn did it look neat -- visually and conceptually. Crescent Moon Games ende...more

Platformer Freedom Planet borrows from the Sega Genesis greats

Freedom Planet looks like a lost Sega Genesis gem, but it's actually a brand new action-platform game created by GalaxyTrail. I remember hearing about it a while back from Tony Ponce -- first in 2012 and again last year when...more
