You can also check out the recent livestreamed video where some of the devs play and talk about the game. But because we love you here at ZAM, here is the quick and dirty:
The Showdown Effect is a 2.5D multiplayer action game inspired by 80’s and 90’s action movies where champions from different eras of time fight to the death, for fun, for glory and for awesome. Players will battle for the upper hand through cunning use of different weapons, the game's wide range dynamic environments and even the engine's own dramatic audiovisual effects.
