MANCHESTER 2281, UK: The dystopian shooter storyworld of indie game Beyond Flesh and Blood is to undergo a quaint, Christmas transformation.
Even the city's residents have taken to wearing Santa hats.
Oh wait...THE SNOWBALLS ARE DEADLY! THE CANDY CANES ARE WAY TOO BIG! THE PRESENTS EXPLODE IN YOUR FACE!
Fed up of the Christmas sales? Did someone beat you to that generic silver bracelet for the missus? Don't worry.
That's why Pixelbomb Games created the new CHRISTMAS DEMO MODE for Beyond Flesh and Blood, because Christmas just isn't festive unless you can run around in android suits while smashing the absolute s*** out of your enemies.
...Understandably, the co-lead developers have rather varying views on this demo.
Lee Blacklock, co-lead developer, said: "My favourite parts are the physics applied to the santa hat, and the fiery explosions which have been replaced with snowflakes."
Philip Muwanga, co-lead developer said: "Bah, humbug."
