Getting WET

May 20, 2009 - Nick Recchia Tom Worthington
I wanted to make you guys aware of a pretty sweet looking game that hasn't gotten much attention yet but I'm sure it will. The game I am referring to is WET. If you have heard or seen anything about the game then you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't then you need to check it out.

If I could describe WET it would be The Matrix with a Grindhouse finish. By that I mean that you use a lot of slowed down acrobatics to tear your way through gangs of enemies while the game itself looks like a grindhouse movie complete with an old film filter. In the game you play as Rubi Malone. According to the website, Rubi's occupation is Problem Solver.

As far as I can tell you have two weapons. A set of pistols and a katana. But technically you have three weapons if you consider Rubi herself as a weapon. The way that your guns work is once you start to do some sort of acrobatic move, knee slide, wall flip/run, whichever) the game will slow down and at that point one gun will automatically lock onto an enemy while the other is free for you to take out whoever you feel like. Or on the other hand you can pull out your katana and slice an enemy down. According to the developer, if you do not use wall runs, knee slides and her acrobatics in general, you will not survive.

One other interesting part of the game is when Rubi goes into a rage. As you can see from the picture above the entire screen turns red while all enemies turn black and white. At this point you will be able to do the most damage without having to worry about health. Basically Rubi turns into even more of a killing machine.

Do yourself a favor and check out WET's official website for more info and goodies on the game. The link is attached above. This will definately be on my list of games to get this fall. And I'm sure I'm not the only one.
