The game puts players in charge of secretive Organizations of corporate mercenaries, taking on missions for pay and prestige alongside three other players in online co-op. Developed by Ruffian Games, the team behind Crackdown 2, Hollowpoint brings classic 2D side-scrolling action into the next generation.
In Hollow, you are a city detective who has transferred to the nearly abandoned rural town of Hollow where some of the worst criminals have mysteriously escaped. It will be up to you and whoever will help to use whatever you have at your disposal to figure out what has happened. Guns, magic, computer hacking, investigation tools, surreal puzzles, and major decision making will factor into whether or not you will succeed. Hollow utilizes features found in games like Shadowrun, Fallout, and Shining Force such as a party system, stat-based dialogue, and turn-based combat. The game aims to be accessible to people who are not familiar with RPGs, but deep enough to satisfy role-playing veterans.
In terms of core gameplay, HollowFear brings together best of different genres. As it combines elements of role playing, tower defense and fast paced action/arcade games, it will put your prudence, tactical thinking, reflexes and accuracy to the test.
