It is always nice to see a new interpretation of the classic rhythm game. Games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero have ruled this genre for the past decade. It looks like we are starting to get some Indie rhythm games with unique twists. Double Kick Heroes is just that, a rhythm game with a crazy spin on the traditional gameplay. You basically play in a band, in a car, driving down the highway killing enemies depending on the music that is playing. You’ll have to check out the trailer below to really breathe it all in.
About Double Kick Heroes:
” Inspired by the worlds of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino (From Dusk til Dawn, Grindhouse, Machete), players lead their band on an explosive road trip through the wasteland blasting zombies with their Gundillac and crushing them with the power of METAL. The game will pack in 30 songs (18 songs for Early Access, 30 for final release), half a dozen chapters of adventures and a community level editor that will allow any music to be played to the soothing rhythm of exploding zombie skulls. Five Badasses and a Gundillac in Zombie Hell Lincoln, Snake, Derek, Randi and James; five metalheads who find themselves in the precarious position of surviving the zombie apocalypse. Left on their own in a world gone mad all they have to get by is their heavy metal shredding skills and the ‘Gundillac’. A high speed, upgradeable weapon on wheels powered by the almighty double kick, the Gundillac lays waste to all that chase it down. Shoot zombies by beating the keyboard just like you’d hammer a drum kit. Sounds easy? Don’t be fooled!
