In A Nutshell

A cross between the mind-splitting controls of “Brothers: a Tale…” and the arcade gameplay of “Geometry Wars”, with a sprinkle of beat-syncing.  Feels like playing co-op with yourself.

Description

MODSORK is a challenging arcade game about controlling two avatars at the same time to keep them alive against relentless waves of grumpy geometric shapes. These avatars can be connected with lasers in order to clothesline the frenemies and score. Players will find themselves dying a lot only to tell themselves “just one more try” over and over again.

The game is all about the visceral satisfaction of mastering its ambidextrous controls. For instance, special abilities are not triggered by pressing a button, but by pulling off a cool gesture on the controller.

Many elements are synced to the beat to create a hypnotic experience and the music reacts to gameplay events. Players can select between various styles of music, replacing all the audio in the game with matching sounds.
