Having mutant superpowers is probably cool, right? Hmm, think again. Try being a bird-shaped monster who lays eggs – tiny copies of yourself hatch from these eggs to fight for you. Useful? Yes. Weird…? Definitely. Oh, and it turns out you can tear off your own head to throw it at your enemies.
That’s Freaky Awesome, an action rogue-lite developed by indie studio Mandragora out tomorrow on Steam for $9.99 / €9.99 / £5.99.
You play as Sam, a retired action hero searching for his lost dog in an old factory (which is procedurally generated, of course) full of mutated monsters and traps. Enemies leave behind a poodle of mutagen that can heal you but can also mutate you – even if you’re in the middle of a fight.
Every mutated form has its own mechanics and powers, and you need to adapt to them in order to survive. On top of that, you can use objects in combat and develop your character to unlock new skills, as well as play in co-op with up to 4 players.
