Wow, upcoming action title Furi looks amazingly slick


From the creator of Afro Samurai

Well I didn’t see this one coming.

Development studio The Game Bakers (creators ofSquids Odyssey) has announced Furi, a really rad-looking action game that’s set to debut in 2016 on PC and PS4. Evidently the entire affair is heavily focused on story, and players will slowly piece together the narrative over time.

The combat is designed around eastern action games, with “ultra fast-paced and responsive” mechanics (good, good). Also, Afro Samurai’s Takashi Okazaki has been tapped for the art. On paper this sounds great, but I’ve been burned by a lot of indie action titles, so let’s see how this one turns out.
