Squadron 51 Announced

Developer Loomiarts and publishers Assemble Entertainment and WhisperGames unveil plans for Squadron 51, which will come to Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch later this year. They call this a 2D hybrid shooter that's "inspired by 1950s sci-fi icons such as War of the Worlds, Godzilla, and Dr. Strangelove" (though the last of these is neither science fiction, nor is it from the 1950s). Word is: "Play as Lieutenant Kaya, a leading force in the rebel cause, and face the unrelenting hostile alien aircraft, martian fighters, and monsters, all in the glorious black-and-white of the 1950s! The future of the Earth is in the hands of Squadron 51!" Here's the Steam Listing, here's the Announcement Trailer, and here's more:
Warning! Extraterrestrials from outer space have arrived on our planet, bringing promises of a bright new future for the earthlings. However, this otherworldly partnership soon reveals a darker side as the VEGA Corporation, the alien enterprise led by the hideous Director Zarog, is imposing its predatory politics on the human race. In the midst of this oppression, the rebel group Squadron 51 rises as a response against the violent acts committed by these vile beings. Will the brave pilots of Squadron 51 and their aircraft stand a chance against Zarog's diabolic fleet of flying saucers?

Key Features Include:

  • SHMUP Yeah!: Enjoy classic shoot-’em-up gameplay with four unique aircraft that can be customized with special weapons
  • Cinematic Experience: Marvelous black-and-white aesthetics, live-action FMV sequences, and dubbed voices will tell the story of the battle between Squadron 51 and Director Zarog’s alien fleet
  • 11 Ways to Save the World: Fight against enemy ships and bosses in 11 different environments - snowy mountains, forests, cityscapes, and more
  • Rookie Pilots Supported: Whether you’re a beginner or a veteran flying ace, Squadron 51 supports dynamic difficulty that allows every pilot to enjoy the alien extermination
  • Ducks Fly Together!: Fighting an alien horde is more fun with a squadmate! A second player can enter a level at any time — earn points with a co-op player and unlock together new special weapons and upgrades

I'm getting strong Sine Mora vibes which may or may not be a bad thing. I also did a double-take as I swore it said Squadron 41 and thought someone was putting a thumb in the eye of CIG.

I think HG Wells would be very surprised to learn the War of the Worlds is from the 1950s. Or Orson Welles for that matter

Would Mr. Wells be surprised to learn the 1950s come from the 1950s?

Makes sense. Whales can make money there, too, and "invest" it into Roberts' "games". And the discussion platfrom will be moved to Gab because only there the "truth" about the "games" can be spread without control and discussion with heretics!
