There have been all sorts of big announcements from today’s Gamescom expo. However, sneaking in the backdoor of those reveals and unveiling’s is a one-and-a-half minute clip of Aurelien Games’ upcoming racer, The Next Penelope. Billed as a 2D racing and action game set in a futuristic odyssey, the vibrant indie project mashes together various genre staples such as races, bosses, ability upgrades and customization, in addition to an overworld that can be explored free-form, in any order the player sees fit. The game is slated for a 2014 PC/MAC release, with a 2015 Wii U launch to follow.
Nevertheless, there hasn’t been a lot of footage or news of the racer as of yet, but today at Gamescom Aurelien showed off a specific mode for the game entitled “Attract Mode”, which for all intents and purposes, looks pretty amazing. But don’t take our word for it, lay eyes on the video below and see for yourself.
