Some of these recent releases are giving me an odd sense of deja vu.  We just reviewed a cyberpunk indie game with an all-caps main title and a subtitle.  ‘Tis the season for cyberpunk, I guess?

While REPULSE: Galactic Rivals may have a recognizable aesthetic, its gameplay synopsis is unique.  REPULSE is a 3D, topdown view local multiplayer game where up to four players compete to destroy each other using nothing more than some cubes and repulsion/attraction physics.  As the Steam store page states, “easy to learn, hard to master.”

REPULSE is developer IronEqual’s first paid offering.  It was successfully funded on Kickstarter, a campaign which I was a part of, almost exactly one year ago.  Though a simple game at first glance, a lot of additions were made during development.  According to the most recent development update, dozens of features were added, including  a total of ten game modes and the ability to customize the game’s soundtrack.  While my participation in couch multiplayer games has dwindled since having a little one (the late night screaming and trolling doesn’t blend well with sleeping toddlers), I’m looking forward to giving this one a spin.  I can get behind simple-yet-fun games.

REPULSE: Galactic Rivals releases on Steam on Monday, 11/13/2017.
