Update on February 7th at 08:31: Malevolent Machines is, as expected, out now on iOS and Android for €/£/$1.99.
Time to kick some cyborg's butts.
We haven't really mentioned it yet but Malevolent Machines by Goodnight Games is an upcoming steampunk runner which looks pretty neat. Better yet, it's just released a new teaser trailer and now has an official release date.
At a glance you might not be particularly taken with the game, but its art style is truly cracking. Toeing the line between classic and slightly modern, the simplicity of the character design and the limited movement is what really does it for me.
Anyone who knows me also knows that I'm a story-driven kind-of gal, and this isn't your basic runner. Dr. Leyla Green faces some mechanical mishaps are her experiments go awry. Alongside her pet cyborg, it's time to take on the hordes of her own creation as she tries to reach her university lab.
Find out more about Malevolent Machines on its forum page here. Until then, the game is due out February 7th – the best day in my opinion, though I can't really tell you why. *wink*
