Housemarque, a renowned indie development team with a staggering amount of great titles under their belt, are working on a Windows PC game, as revealed by a leaked beta signup form that surfaced on NeoGaf earlier today. We don’t have a lot of details about the studio’s unannounced PC title, though we expect that it will be a port of their upcoming Smash TV meets Robotron twin stick shooter Nex Machina.
We will randomly select 50 participants for the closed alpha to give feedback and playtest our upcoming PC Windows title. Game content will be limited to a subset of the full game’s features, similar to a demo.
Starting on the 10th of March 2017 and ending on the 19th of March 2017.
We need your input so that we can tweak the game and gameplay to make the game even better. We want to reach out to our biggest fans for their valuable input!
Since this is a closed test, we require your full name and contact details for an NDA (non disclosure agreement). Your contact details will not be shared to third parties.
Submitting a completed feedback form after the test period will make you eligible for digital Steam key of the title, delivered to your email upon release, and your name in the end credits.
The game is not yet fully optimized, and thus we expect you to meet the following requirements:
Steam account is mandatory
OS: 64 bit Windows 10 / 8 / 7
Processor: Intel Core i5-4690 or AMD FX-4300
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: 4 GB Video RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 390
DirectX: Version 11
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Storage: 1 GB available space
Controller: Xbox360 / XboxOne or similar. Also PS4 controller works. Game doesn’t have keyboard + mouse support yet.
Nex Machina is an intense arcade style twin-stick shooter from Housemarque. Taking hints from both Robotron and Smash TV, Nex Machina focuses on pure action, voxel destruction and competition in the distant, cablepunk themed future.
The company’s last PC game was released in 1999, so we are more than happy about this news.
