Ex-S.T.A.L.K.E.R. devs release trailer for new shmup Humans Must Answer

Play as "intelligent and dangerous chickens."

Ex-S.T.A.L.K.E.R. developers Denis Matveenko and Eugeny Yatsuk have shown off Humans Must Answer - their first game at new indie studio Sumom Games.

Humans Must Answer is a horizontal-scrolling shmup in which you play as "a crew of intelligent and dangerous chickens" who've made contact with earth. While you came in peace, earth was not so kind and instantly fired upon you. Now, as the title implies, they must answer.

Aside from lots of explosions and customisable weapon layouts, Sumom promises a "subtle and surprising narrative that is integrated into the gameplay."

Humans Must Answer is coming to PC next year. Sumon just put up a page for it on Steam Greenlight.
