In the slew of game announcements and updates for Summer Game Fest 2022, the title we’re most excited for is published by Devolver Digital and created by South African developer Free Lives in the form of Anger Foot, a game we already played last year.
This wasn’t some privileged early access we got as members of the press, instead Free Lives made a portion of Anger Foot freely available for anyone to try on itch.io.
This open testing of new game ideas is relatively common for the South African developer as it did the same for the “reverse city builder” game Terra Nil, another title that is also now becoming a full game.
Now Anger Foot has emerged from itch.io as an upcoming game with a 2023 release date and a fresh coat of paint.
“Anger Foot is a lightning fast hard bass blast of kicking doors and kicking ass. Crash through the caffeine-fuelled fever dream of Shit City, putting the boot to a menacing menagerie of merciless gangsters,” reads the official description.
“Unleash the world’s deadliest feet on a colourful cast of anthropomorphic enemies. Clearing out slums, sewers, and skyscrapers as you grab new weapons, unlock new sneakers, and upgrade your powers in absurd and wonderful ways. Kick and shoot your way to the exit as you leave behind a smouldering trail of shattered doors, broken bones, and crumpled energy drinks.”
All of this comes with a new Steam page you can check out here that, surprise surprise, has a free demo so you can also play this game ahead of time.
It would, of course, be best for you to play this game and decide on its quality yourself, but we will say that we had a lot of fun with it and that’s not just national pride getting in the way.
And to get you even more interested there’s also a trailer.
