Scrapland hits the web

No, we hadn't heard of it either.

We've just received word of a new site launch promoting Scrapland, the debut project from previously unknown Spanish outfit MercurySteam. Once you've wrestled the hideous Flash site's wobbling navigation into submission, you'll find a wealth of information about the forthcoming sci-fi space combat shooter's tongue-in-cheek storyline and characters, along with some pretty artwork and screenshots which we pilfered for you anyway.

We managed to gather that players will assume the role of a robot called D-Tritus inhabiting an asteroid called Scrapland, which is host to a population of machines. D-Tritus gets a job as a photographer as an important archbishop is murdered, apparently at the hands of a human, and he decides to investigate. D-Tritus' talents include the ability to assume the identity of other characters and acquire their abilities - quite how this will tie in with the fast-paced gunship combat remains to be seen. No platform, publisher or release date details are available at the moment.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
