If you remember steampunk co-op shooter The Chaos Engine, then you are officially Old. I'm sorry to break it to you, but those low-slung trousers and your inappropriate use of the word 'hench' is fooling nobody. On the bright side, however, I have some news that (if you're anything like me) will make you do your special Happy Dance. Just be careful you don't break a hip. The Chaos Engine is being remade/rebooted! And it's being published by Hotline Miami co-conspirators Devolver Digital! Stick around for a brief, entirely content-free teaser trailer.
