The Watchlist: The Hong Kong Massacre

Title: The Hong Kong Massacre
Developer: Vreski Games
Platforms: PC, Mac, Linux
In development
A game set in Hong Kong filled with guns, bullets, slow-motion and blood. It is a top-down action game inspired by classic Hong Kong action movies. I wanted to make a game for sometime that tries to capture the intensity and mayhem that gunfights creates in these movies.
 The Hong Kong Massacre is still very early in development, but after seeing the game on TIGForums a few weeks ago and reading the developer's visions and plans, it's becomes one of my most anticipated indie games. Inspired by the Hong Kong action movie genre, films like Hard Boiled and The Killer, The Hong Kong Massacre sets you on a path of revenge as you track down a triad leader. You work your way up the food chain to gather clues about your target's whereabouts, leaving blood-soaked, lead-filled mayhem in your wake. Gratuitous bloodspray, stylish slow motion, dual wielding, diving and gorgeous effects already add a visceral gritty edge to the gameplay, and the developer hopes to add more variety than just mowing down enemies, including stealth gameplay and single target levels. Info on the HKM is light at the moment, so here are some more awesome GIFs of the game:

The developer is currently porting the game to Unity and working on a gameplay trailer and Greenlight page. You can follow The Hong Kong Massacre's development on TIGForums.
