Yes, that man is wearing a Hawaiian shirt, the music is awesome, and yes, that’s a majestic moustache! But what is this weird game you ask? This is The Chameleon, a 1970’s inspired, indie stealth game with a heck of a punch. You awaken in a facility with amnesia, not knowing who you are, why robots are out to get you or what else this facility is doing. Your journey’s just begun.
Before anyone asks, no I wasn’t alive during the ’70s, but the music here is very much of the time it reminds me quite fondly of Far Cry Blood Dragon, a futuristic beat to really get the blood going, and if that wasn’t enough, they’ve also included 12 full tracks for you all to experience. As this nameless moustached man, you explore the facility and on the way, you get superpowers, these range from the super punch, dash, transform and even slow downtime, all building on one another to help you keep one step ahead of those robots.
While the graphics may look odd, it definitely fits in with the style that Merlino Games are trying to convey, chunky pixels, I get the feeling of mid 90s graphics. Okay, so maybe it isn’t in your style. The game also comes with a way to switch between pixeled or hi-res so you can change to your desire. According to the developers, The Chameleon is around 2 – 3 hours with multiple reasons to replay included to improve your score, from remain undetected, find all hidden areas, and even destroy all enemies. It’ll be coming to PC on Steam on 13 July, So be sure to wishlist this title ready for its release next week!
