2D GEARS OF WAR WITH STEAMPUNK, ROBOTICISM AND THE DARK-SKINNED LORD – NASER: SON OF MAN TRAILER

Studio Enlightened Robot has mixed an unusual cocktail of 2D action,  Gears of War , alternate history, steampunk and fancy black God. The cocktail was nicknamed Naser: Son of Man and was presented at gamescom 2020. 

The scene is Great Britain in 1875, where robots came to power led by Queen Elizabeth Zero. The main character is a mustachioed man; the queen took everything valuable in life from him and enslaved his people. This is how the story of revenge begins: the protagonist promises to destroy all robots to the last.

The gameplay is clearly inspired by Gears of War : there are cover, dash and finishing off half-dead opponents with a chainsaw. But the arsenal is steampunk: for example, there are weapons that shoot electrical discharges.

Another unusual feature is God to help. Periodically, the main character communicates with the Lord and summons him to the battlefield: a huge dark-skinned hand appears from somewhere from heaven and smears robots on the ground. Yes, God in this world is dark-skinned, wears golden brass knuckles with the words “peace” and “love”, and also broadcasts with phrases like “Boom, jackalak!”

Naser: Son of Man is set to come out sometime on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
