Metal Dogs – A post-apocalyptic roguelike starring a dog
04 Aug, 2021
Metal Dogs is a roguelike action game in which you play as a dog. Developer 24Frame tell us more about it as it enters Early Access soon.
Metal Dogs is a top-down 3D roguelike action game with a fighting dog as the main character. In the game, you can enjoy the exhilaration of shooting various weapons such as machine guns, cannons, and missiles and kicking off countless monsters, as well as the battle with the mighty “WANTED”, via simple controls.
This title is a spin-off of the RPG “Metal Max” series, which celebrated its 30th anniversary this year. Metal Dogs will be available in Early Access form in early Summer 2021.
The terrain and treasure chests change each time you play the dungeon. This means that even if you play the same map many times, you can have a different experience each time.
Item collection element
Equipment such as weapons and armor will be randomly given additional effects. There are various types of additional effects, such as “damage value increase” and “bullet count increase”.
In addition, equipment has rarity, and the higher the rarity, the more additional effects will be found. The “hack and slash” element of hunting monsters in search of better equipment is another point of attraction for the game.
Post-Apocalyptic World View
The game is set in Japan after most of humanity has died due to the “great destruction”. The player’s base is a village at the foot of Mt. Fuji, which has also been devastated.
The hero Pochi, who was revived by the mysterious old scientist Dr. Minchi, searches for the hero who left him and in doing so, adventures in a dangerous dungeon infested with ferocious monsters.
