“Deathloop” looked intriguing with its 1960s “No One Lives Forever” vibe and “Gran Turismo 7” will certainly turn heads with its realism, but this indie title captured my attention because of its distinct look and humor. It’s described as an action RPG with survival elements but the trailer appears to show influences of “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” The combination of style and compelling substance has this game high on my list.
The developer, Neostream, has been working on this title for a while. It was a Kickstarter project scheduled to be released in 2016. Now it’s a timed exclusive for the PS5 that will also come to the PS4.
