What we like to call an "FPJOB" (First-person jump off buildings-er), Aaaaa! (or AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity, if you prefer) sees release of a playable alpha-stage demo today.
This piece of work "shoves you off of floating skyscrapers in eight levels set over an alternate Boston, MA, and ends with an upsetting "thank you for playing" speech by the studio." Brilliant.
We gave the game a preview of sorts last month, noting a third person perspective and much faster falling speeds would make this a killer title. Does the alpha offer any improvements on the latter front, at least? We'll let you know following our shot at the game shortly. In the meantime, give it your own via the link below and let us know what you think.
Mini-review: The game is very well presented and put-together, and the humour adds a great bit to the fun. A first-person perspective is perhaps best for the game, but the speed still feels like an issue. Levels (at least the first two) are short, and you fall slowly. A much better experience, we feel, would be to have much longer levels whereby you fall at a realistic pace. That said, definitely give the demo a try to decide whether or not it's something you'd like to spend money on come release time (Q3).
