Since we are talking about giant humanoid robots, there is another game you should know about. Hawken, developed by Adhesive Games, is famous for its first trailer which “could melt faces at 100 paces” (EuroGamer). Last week at PAX prime, they released another one. It looks like even if MechWarrior is stuck in development hell, we are going to have ourselves a Mech game.
Isn’t this the most beautiful robot combat you’ve seen in years? This video shows a work in progress, the end result could be even better. So original, so aesthetically pleasing, Hawken is an indie game, currently without a publisher. Which means absolute creative freedom for Adhesive Games. This rust and dust, industrial romanticism, Cyrillic letters create a refreshingly different vision of the future. I can’t wait to play this.
Hawken currently has no publisher, no release dates, and no announced platforms. Adhesive Games has stated it is interested in bringing the game to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC as a downloadable title.
