The devs behind the game Sir, You Are Being Hunted are whipping up another game, but set in an apocalyptic robotic scrapyard world. Although the trailer for the game was released a while back, developer Big Robot has posted up a new gameplay video detailing tactics and other maneuvers in their new game.
For those of you who don’t know what The Signal From Tovla is the best way to describe the game is a robotic scrapyard of ruins littered around fields of dirt, grass and mountainous areas with shooting and hacking mechanics nestled-in.
As strange as The Signal From Tovla may sound the game has some interesting features residing within its core gameplay. I like how in the new video it shows firefights between the player and opposing faction(s) — and that they can be won through using cover and your environment to flank the enemy. I also like how you can hack other robots to distract guarding bots so that while the hacked robot is laying down suppressing fire you can do whatever it is you need to do, which adds an alternate method to firefights without it feeling forced in.
Now that you know some of the stuff or gameplay mechanics that go into The Signal From Tovla, you can watch both the older announcement trailer for a refresh and a the newer gameplay trailer with commentary over the video.
Sadly, as of this moment the game does not sport a specific release date yet but it will release sometime next year. Additionally The Signal From Tovla is currently set to release for PC and looks as if it won’t have a console version according to the main site.
