10tons, the Finland based independent developer of roguelike “Neon Chrome” have today announced their new game, called JYDGE, which will be coming to Xbox later in 2017.
JYDGE is a top-down shooter where the player gets to build a cybernetic JYDGE and fight crime in the never-sleeping megacity of Edenbyrg. The customisation of the character, the Gavel rifle and the selection of companion drones greatly alters how the game is played, for example using drones more than your rifle will give a stealth game experience.
In addition to extensive customization, JYDGE features a large amount of missions and secondary challenges. For example, a level’s primary mission might be to deal with a gang of bank robbers. Secondary challenges might include rescuing all hostages, completing the level in less than 30 seconds, and completing the primary mission without being seen. Completing missions and secondary challenges awards medals, which in turn unlock new cybernetic enhancements, weapon modifications, special weapons, missions, and more.
“While Neon Chrome has been a great success for us, we quickly learned that procedurally generated levels and roguelike elements are not for everyone. We’ve built JYDGE specifically for people preferring a carefully hand-crafted yet highly customizable top-down shooter. We call this a roguehate game.”
said Tero Alatalo, CEO of 10tons.
