The rejuvenated Hewson Consultants has been pretty busy of late. Last year, they released an excellent audio CD featuring some great tunes from some of the their greatest games and followed that up this year with Andrew Hewson’s interesting autobiography.
Now they’ve given us a reason to be even more excited – they are back in the games business proper, having just announced their first new game in nearly 30 years and launched a Kickstarter campaign.
Hypersentinal is a love letter to the old 8 bit shoot em ups and it looks very promising indeed.
Given Hewson’s reputation for turning out high quality products and the fact that they were behind some of the best shoot em ups on the 8 bit machines (Uridium, Cybernoid, Exolon), this is one Kickstarter project that has got me very excited indeed.
The game will initially be available in for iOS devices and PC, with console versions planned if the appropriate Stretch Goals are reached.
If you’re as excited about this game as I am (and you should be!) get on over to Kickstarter and back it now.
