Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs starring himself, Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, and Steve Buscemi, among others, has become a cult classic since its release back in 1992. As such, it has spawned several games including a rather poorly received one with the same name, as well as inspiring several others, including the highly acclaimed Payday series.
Now, fans of the hit movie will be happy to know that another game based on the flick is on the way for PC and Xbox One gamers.
Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days is a title being developed by Big Star Games, and features design similar to that of Hotline Miami. While the game looks and feels like an indie game from the reveal trailer, it does pack an interesting twist in gameplay mechanics, which is described as the "Time Back" system.
Gamers will control one character at a single moment but will be able to control multiple through the aforementioned system. This will be done by players making a move using one character, and then "going back" in time and moving another character while the previous one automatically does what they were ordered to do by the player. You can watch the reveal trailer (via GameTrailers) below:
The trailer has received a rather mixed response on YouTube. Many have criticized it for "missing the essence" of the movie, while others are disappointed over the fact that it features no likenesses or voice acting from the cast of the movie, despite sporting characters with the same names.
That said, the game studio has stated that it is working with Lionsgate - which holds the rights to the movie - and is "getting things approved" from Tarantino. As such, Quentin Tarantino isn't directly involved in the making of the game.
Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days is slated for a release on Steam in spring, and on Xbox One later this year.
