Gunpoint dev’s stealthy space sandbox Heat Signature launches this month
Gunpoint developer Tom Francis’ long-awaited action roguelike, Heat Signature, will launch on PC via Steam 21st September.
Heat Signature is an almost comically ambitious affair that looks a bit like a procedurally-generated mix of Hotline Miami’s top-down heists and Metal Gear Solid 5’s more robust stealth mechanics. The sandbox game has you accepting missions to steal supplies or assassinate NPCs, then it’s up to you to fly your ship around the cosmos, sneak onto the craft where your target is, and infiltrate the vessel.
In a cool twist on the formula, each ship you sneak onto is both a dungeon and a vehicle. Some ships are rather spacious labyrinths with plenty of guards patrolling, while others are more modest crafts, but they all have one thing in common: you can seize control of them and then cruise the cosmos with your new flying fortress.
