4DX Games is launching a Greenlight.campaign of their upcoming PC title, Super Space Meltdown (SSM) on May 14th 2015. Take the role of Sgt. Alex Cutter and exploit time travel to to rid a spaceship of hostile aliens. Something doesn’t seem right though.
Super Space Meltdown makes you crawl through random rooms filled with alien scum that are begging for a blaster shot right in the face! The levels have a strict time limit of 60 seconds before meltdown so make sure you are quick and know how to think ahead. Sgt. Alex Cutter cheats time with his trusty computer companion. That means that time will be reversed every time you should die but you will get to keep every item, bullet you have managed to salvage. Most importantly, you will know how to do better next time. Learn, die and repeat baby!
You are equipped by your trusty space rifle, but as time is of an essence, that is not always enough. Therefore Cutter has an impressive arsenal for disposing the hostiles and you will find more weapons and a fair share of bullets along your journey from room to room. For example, you can leave turrets to take out the trash for you or you can blow the nasties to smithereens by a space grenade. Yes, a space grenade. It’s like a normal grenade, but better. Because it has space in the name. Don’t question the logic!
You will will learn about the story behind the game as they progress through the game. The random rooms occasionally offer tidbits of information about the backstory through messages left in comm terminals. Who is Sgt. Cutter? Why is the time reversing every time Cutter dies? Why is the spaceship infested with hostile aliens? Who is behind the messages on the terminals? Why is there a meltdown? That, and more can be learned by exploring the persistent world and advancing through the levels.
