Basingstoke

PuppyGames—the developer of indie tower defence Revenge of the Titans—has released footage of their upcoming game, Basingstoke.

PC Gamer is a global outlet, and so I should probably what Basingstoke is.

Churchill Way, Basingstoke

It's the kind of town that you can spend 99.9% of your life not thinking about. It has a lot of roundabouts, I guess?

This, courtesy of PuppyGames' new trailer, is the computer game adaptation of Basingstoke:

At this point, those of you reading in the UK might need to take a minute to deal with the fact that there is a game called Basingstoke.

Done? Okay, here's the developer on what the game is:

"So the objective is to ultimately escape Basingstoke, like any right-thinking individual," writes Cas (opens in new tab). No comment.

"First of all, you’re definitely going to die, and this is going to be quite a challenging game ... when you die, that’s it, game over; and each game has randomly generated levels. The levels are made up of a number of randomly selected prefabricated sections joined together cunningly to create a mix of familiar and unfamiliar."

Basingstoke is due out early next year.

Thanks, RPS (opens in new tab).
