As crazy as it sounds, but the you-are-what-you-eat mantra couldn’t be any more true than in this game, which tasks the player to eat enemies, bullets and other things to make one’s character, weapons, and abilities stronger. By mowing down all sorts of crazy monstrosities, one literally tears them apart and feasts on their flesh. While this might be tasteless in the extreme, it’s presented in a humorous pixel art style that complements the ingenous idea.
It’s even possible to avoid meat and be all vegan by eating what the soil has to offer. Depending on the food, one receives different abilities and perks, which changes the way one progresses. Four character classes (Carnivore, Herbivore, Omnivore, and Robovore) prove that the concept isn’t only ridiculous, but actually works, while there are enough sidequests to beef up (pun intended) the shooting experience.
The game is out now on PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch with a 25% launch discount that lasts until August 27, 2020, at 5 PM UTC.
