Kate is a Netflix original work about an assassin who only has 24 hours to live. It tracks Kate (because that is the name of the protagonist) as she tries to find an antidote to cure her poison, and in the process strives to escape the underworld of Tokyo.I don’t know if it’s good, but I Do Know that it is undergoing a game adaptation in the following form Kate: Collateral damage.
Isometric pixel art roguelike is the work of Ludic Studios, they are responsible for producing highly acclaimed works Akane And upcoming Windrunner (Originally scheduled to expire in early 2021, but has entered MIA). Kate: Collateral damage is described as “time attack, action roguelike”, and the trailer definitely promises a fast-paced, twitch-oriented shooter, although you can also use knives and katana.
Oh, just like in the movie, if Kate can’t find a way to neutralize the poison, she will die. The time bar will continue to run out, but you can slow it down by killing enemies. If you don’t hit a fatal blow for too long, you will fall to the ground and die. There are other ways to extend the timer, as well as a series of different roguelike style gains and modifiers. It looks a bit like an isometric Miami hotline with permadeath.
This is not the first time a game adaptation of the Netflix series has appeared: By the way, Stranger Things 3 is now off the PC storefront. Given that Netflix is getting involved in game development, many people believe that the delisting is due to the inevitable Netflix game application, which makes Kate’s appearance on Steam a bit puzzling.
Kate: Collateral damage will be released on Steam on October 23. Check out the trailer below.
