Anyone hear of this game Broforce? It's like the Expendables as a video game!

"The biggest selling point is the characters, all pixel-art parodies of 80's and 90's action movie heroes. Rambo, Commando, Walker Texas Ranger, Snake Plissken, John McClane, The Terminator, Judge Dredd, and more are available to play as and each with their own unique weapon and secondary explosive."

I played the free alpha and it's freaking awesome. It's just utter chaos and tons of fun, really fast paced. But it can be pretty tough because one hit kills you.

Oh, and the levels are totally destructible.

I was reading the forums and the devs are planning on adding Hell Boy, Conan, and Indiana Jones to the game. That's just awesome

So I've been playing for like three hours now, turns out Indy had already been added (with a whip that acts as a grapple hook) and even better, Ash is the game, complete with chainsaw

I think the little details really add personality to the game. For example, if you die around guard dogs, when you return to that spot as a new character, you'll see the dogs feasting on your corpse.

Or how each character plays differently. Macgvyer is all about explosives. Agent J (Bro in Black!) and McClane can stun enemies with a neuralizer or flashbang, respectively. Indy has his grapple hook. Blade is all about melee. Terminator has a minigun with crazy recoil so you have to plan for that.

Or how there's a rudimentary line-of-sight/stealth system. Enemies are attracted to noise and will investigate. You cause distractions and flank, take out a few enemies with silent melee strikes, lure them into traps.

Oh, and the site where I found the preview of the game posted another article with GIFs of Dredd, Robocop, and others. Here's the link:

And I thought the game would look like this. http://www.freelives.net/garbagecollector/characters9.jpg

But it's just the usual pixelated junk. Can you tell I'm tired of it?

Yeah, I was a bit disappointed by that as well. It would be nice to have more detailed sprites.

Its still awesome, though.

Yeah I was reading on another forum where the devs said that the other art style was just too time consuming.
