Cyberpunk action-shooter Ruiner launching next month


Cyborg minotaurs are my jam

Ruiner has looked darn good for some time now, and it won’t be much longer yet before we’re all able to go hands-on with the top-down shooter/slasher. It’s out September 26, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One by way of Reikon Games and (who else?) Devolver Digital.

Today’s trailer got me to poke around the game’s website, which has gifs and the story setup as well as a look at the foes: brainwashed Creeps, semi-synthetic Heaven Security guards, Triad Killers, and a Cyborg Minotaur. What’s the deal with that last one? “The bosses like their toys personalized and often inspired by mythical beasts to pump up the intimidation factor. This one is big, heavy, and as strong as they get outside of military grade cyborgs.” I’m so into this.
