Netflix Queues Up a Roguelike PC Game to Go With Its Action Movie Kate. The PC game Kate: collateral damage debuts next month on steam.
Netflix Queues Up a Roguelike PC Game to Go With Its Action Movie Kate
The game Kate: collateral damage is not the first gaming tie-in that has been created for Netflix’s original content. But it now seems that the company is entering the space fully. And with that, each title they now produce feels somewhat a bit different.
The new game is a “time-attack action roguelike” that resonates with the movie Kate, a Netflix movie starring Mary Elizabeth. The movie is centered on an assassin that has 24 hours only to find the antidote to a poison that’s killing her. The game is developed by ludic studios.
The plot of the movie makes the game simple and easy to understand. As a player, you will need to take over the central character on her quest. According to the steam description of the game, players will have to kill enemies to slow down the depleting timer, earning syringes that help rests the timer completely in a bid to extend the lend of each run.
And just like the movie, you will be accompanied by a hostage turned companion Ani. And the neon-lit atmosphere of the movie also comes into play in this game. Kate: collateral damage leans into a three-quarter view compared to earlier ludic studio game, Akane. And comparing the trailers of both games gives an insight into the reason why the Brazilian developer is a good match for the content.
Kate: Collateral Damage Release Date
The game is scheduled to be released on steam on October 22nd. The game does not seem to be tied to your steam subscription just like what Netflix is trying out on android so there is no pricing listed.
But just like the Eden unearthed app lab that recently popped up on Oculus VR, there is the feel of a marketing tie-in that may help the movie Kate stand out among a bunch of john wick like action movies with more female leads popping up recently. And just maybe we will all get to find out more about this development during the streamers Tudum fan event this weekend.
