Post mortem

June 28th, 2014

Hi guys and gals, this is a bit experimental but i thought I'd try a game postmortem, I'm pretty new to all this so bare with me, its pretty raw and completely uncut .

Hopefully a bit of insight into what went into this game will enrich the experience for you all. I have some admittedly unorthodox views on games so, err, buckle in.

Hopefully adding some steam cards soon :D

In the mean time enjoy this free full album of music

Reviews

“A really amazingly well thought out experience. Short but sweet (and incredibly intense!). Unique and quite powerful in narrative - right up there with things like Ghost in the Shell, Blade Runner, and RoboCop, in my optinion.”
Tobor Prime(Savage the shard of Goshen)

“An open world bullet hell romp unlike any other, upgrade your guns and jump in on the fun.”
Desura

“I like games that experiment with unique visual styles and the music is awesome”

About the Game

Experience the speed run, glitch punk micro epic.

Blaze a trail of destruction around the open world city of Nauseous Pines. Take your experimental Police //RUSH// unit right into the heart of the action, race up the five tier city to save whats left of the cities junkies.

Solve the mystery of enigmatic nightclub owner Ultra Violet at breakneck speed and uncover the origins of the super drug "Nox" that has left so many without the use of their limbs; and so many females missing.

Featuring teletext art by Dan Farrimond

Plus intense soundtrack feat:
Cardiffs Techno terrorist "Manpanics"
and Dylan Barry (Super killer hornet Resurrection, G.M.O.S.S.E., Zenodyne, Every zig, Psichodelya, Flying V)



Developed by UK based micro-indie team Rail Slave Games, N.P.P.D. RUSH: THE MILK OF ULTRA VIOLET is an intense, vehicular, open world, arena shooter combined with lite RPG elements and a 80s British bedroom programmer feel. The game features a superb sound track including a track donated by Toshikai Sakoda, composer for publishers such as Konami, Hudson, Namco and Square-Enix back in the Genesis (Mega Drive) and Famicom days. There is also an exclusive track written by British electro artist MANPANICS plus classic tracks written by Dylan Barry, Founder of Rail Slave Games.

“Rail Slave Games are to today’s indie dev scene as punk rock was to the music scene back in the late 1970’s” commented Darryl Still, CEO Kiss Ltd. “I can guarantee you that you will not play anything else like this - it is about as original as it gets”. Dylan Barry, Founding Director at Rail Slave Games added “ N.P.P.D. RUSH: THE MILK OF ULTRA VIOLET has been a labour of love and it is an amazing feeling knowing that with the help of Kiss we have completed our journey. Taking our inspiration from memories of our Amstrad computer gaming days and the much missed Teletext TV service, we think we have delivered gaming experience like no other! Special mentions need to go to Softotaku, Stellboxhead, David Webster and Timeteam1982 from the YouTube retro gaming community”

Indie game, N.P.P.D RUSH - The milk of Ultraviolet, tries it's best to bring retro arcade style goodness to the Steam storefront with it's top down shooter gameplay and maze like level exploration, but unfortunately it falls short in a number of areas. Even with the low cost of entry and the fact that it is currently on sale for 20% off as a new release, N.P.P.D does little to innovate in a genre that has been inspired by a plethora of other indie games as of late. The look and feel are straight out of the mid-to-late 80's, but the gameplay unfortunately doesn't live up to the expectations or the intuitive mechanics we've come to enjoy from other modern classics such as Retro City Rampage or Hotline Miami. If you're feeling nostalgic then you'd be better off saving your money for one of those two titles rather than picking up N.P.P.D RUSH in it's current form. The gameplay sounds interesting on paper, but is only interesting for brief periods of time and coffee break style playthrus. In fact it's very hard to categorize or compare the gameplay when it feels like a combination of less complete versions of more popular games and arcade gameplay styles.

The lack of any leaderboards, steam acheivements, or trading cards is unfortunate because those things might give gamers extra incentive to return to the game. The complete lack of an options menu and the fact that there is no gamepad or controller support is also very disappointing considering that these extra features should be seen as a fundamental inclusion for any and all Arcade style games, top-down shooters, and of course platformers, whether it's an independently developed game or not, and regardless that they are made for PC. This is the year 2014 after all.

Here are the pros and cons:

-- The Good (or at least mediocre): --

- Interesting neon graphic style. Very flashy, much like the arcade games of yesteryear.
- Oldschool gameplay, reminiscent of the old Arcade games, Amiga games, Commadore, and Apple games.
- Keyboard and mouse controls are fairly responsive, while also barely forgiveable.
- Gameplay *can* be fun, but only in short bursts.

-- The Bad: --

- The graphics might be a hit or miss for some gamers. You'll either appreciate the aesthetics or absolutely hate them.
- The music isn't very memorable and can become quite repetitive and annoying after a short time.
- Extremely basic user interface.
- No options menu. **No resolution changes, no windowed or fullscreen control, no volume control.**
- No controller support. This is an absolute must for any and all arcade style games or platformers these days.
- Nostalgia can only get you so far. I appreciate the effort, but the entertainment value here is limited.


For now I'd have to say pass this one up. With a little luck, maybe N.P.P.D will have an update or two that will rectify it's problems and glaring omissions. If you're in the mood for retro arcade style goodness then check out Retro City Rampage, Hotline Miami, Aqua Kitty, Love, Oniken, or Muri, all of which can be found here on Steam. You'll get much more value for your dollar out of them.

This is such a weird, filthy, gorgeous game - like a throbbing, writhing, catchy punk or alt-rock single. I am such a huge fan of what's going on here - all the narrative subtext dealing with some pretty complicated ideas, the artwork, and the action-y bullet hell gameplay environment with a bent towards speed running.

I love things like RoboCop, Blade Runner, Ghost in the Shell... if you dig things like that and love smaller, tighter gameplay experience, this is definitely a steal at the price.

I am super excited to see what Railslave comes up with next. Time to jack in.

This game was a dissapointment.

For starters, this game feels incomplete. This doens't feel like something you'd buy on Steam, this feels like something you'd download from the internet for free. It's not propperly full-screen, the mouse-cursor appears above the crosshair, and there's no main menu.

Secondly, it has a nice concept, but doesn't exectute it properrly. In an andrenaline-fueled top-down shooter where move at high-speeds, you'd expect to accelerate automatically, right? Well, in this game, you don't. You have to hold down the dirrection you want to go in.

Thirdly, this is mostly personal, but I was expecting a cyber-punk Grand Theft Auto style game where you could explore freely, but no. Not only are you restricted to missions, but you're timed.

It's quite clear that the developers of this game are competent, but they just didn't go for their full potential.

Not for everyone, but this is probably one of the only games I'd call "punk" - it knows what it wants to be and it's probably not made for you. A surreal, semi-8-bit top-down speed shooter with a heavy emphasis on your dodging and resource management skills. The only goal is to rescue 30 junkies in 5 minutes* and then take down club owning drug lord Ultra Violet, buuuuuuuut the game is... hectic. Surrealist overlays (the designers describe it as "glitchpunk") and overwhelming visuals turn it from a relatively simple game into an assault on the senses and I'll be honest? It adds to the charm.

It is a game you will probably have to play a few times to beat, and there likely won't be much replay value for you afterwards, but I'll be damned if it didn't accomplish its goal and tell a sick, fun story in the process. Good work from the team behind it.

* You can extend your lifespan but it involves some tradeoffs. Like selling your organs, for example, leading to constant HP drain.

The (semi) recent update has done wonders for this. Fantastic and fast-paced little game well worth a play. Very Twin-stick shooter-esque (not sure if that's actually supported; normal controls are keys and mouse). Interesting aesthetic too; reminds me of the Sega Shadowrun game.
