3D Realms have announced Combustion, an upcoming action-RPG inspired by PSX-era adventures.
Combustion is in development for Windows PC via Steam. In Combustion, players control a rookie cop named Calico in a gritty dieselpunk world populated by anthropomorphic animals.
Inspired by classic PSX-era games in terms of both aesthetic and gameplay, Combustion is a blend of action-RPG and adventure game where you must restore order to Norrune as a wave of terrorist attacks and murders grip the city.
Explore Norrune on foot between missions as you gather clues, interrogate suspects, and fight gangbangers with an arsenal of stun batons, lassos, and freeze spray.
You can find the announcement trailer below.
You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:
Norrune, the city of oil rigs, is ravaged by the terrorist activities of the mysterious Scorch who is set on dismantling the foundations of civil society. Calico – along with his fellow N.P.D. officers – must do everything in their power to battle the onslaught of crime plaguing their home.
Combustion is a pulp noir story inspired by classic games, films, and comics of the late 80s and 90s. Heavy combustion engines, CRTs, and rustbucket robots are all part of this game’s gritty dieselpunk setting.
