8DAYS, an insane 8-bit themed dual-stick shooter inspired by genre classics Hotline Miami and Retro City Rampage, is launching July 22 on Steam.
G.O.D. Inc. (Gold, Oil, and Diamonds, Inc.) is the world leader in the Private Military Company (PMC) sector — bringing peace to those conflict areas where its clients have strategic interests. In 8DAYS, players take on the role of Lola “Wasp” Cruz and Mike “Ghost” Doe — two of G.O.D.’s expendable mercenaries. G.O.D. and 8DAYS Magazine are modern instruments used to keep the masses under control. G.O.D. is primarily a peacekeeping force, and the 8DAYS magazine keeps public opinion in line.
Published by BadLand Games and developed by Spanish studio Santa Clara Games, 8DAYS has players unravel the mysteries of the game’s five chapters — on their own or with the help of a friend in local co-op.
Awarded Best Gameplay at Granada Gaming Festival 2015 and nominated for the AzPlay International Festival of Independent Games 2015, 8DAYS has already seen success with the game’s first “mission” — which was launched on the Humble Store. Fans of the first installment are in for a treat
* Dual-stick shooter with non-stop action.
* High replay value: Each chapter has hidden secrets — and players can progress in different ways every time they play.
* 2 modes: single-player and local 2-player co-op.
* 5 chapters — including the previously released “Mission 1: Rice Wars.”
* Solid 2D arcade mechanics mixed with 3D input controls (keyboard and mouse/dual stick gamepad).
8DAYS features an original soundtrack. The title song, “Wildlands,” sets the scene for players to dive right into the game’s five missions:
A fun-size version of the original soundtrack featuring 5 tracks (“Wildlands,” “Big Ass Mansion,” “Minibosses,” “Big John,” and “Riot”) is available today on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Bandcamp, and Amazon. The full length original soundtrack will go on sale on July 22nd and includes 28 tracks.
