“Think kicking doors is fun? Try blowing them up!” is probably not how to best describe forthcoming Door Kickers, but that’s what Killhouse Games is going with:
Door Kickers is an innovative Real-Time Tactics game that puts you in charge of a SWAT team. Analyze the situation, plan team routes, choose equipment and breach points and coordinate multiple troopers to reach the hostage room before the bad guys get to press that trigger.
It may sound daunting, and like real world CQB combat, it sure is. But most levels can be completed in minutes and on the fly improvisation works. Achieving the perfect planning, getting the mission done with no false steps, that’s a skill harder to master.
Judging by the trailer, which you can watch below, it looks like Frozen Synapse and Hotline Miami got together and came up with an intricate plan to abduct your free time. The game’s on Steam Greenlight, with an alpha version of the Windows version currently available to people who like to live on the edge, with a Mac version coming soon.
