Taking place in building’s basking in the 1980’s Miami ‘neon glow’. You play as an anonymous character, which gaming lore has named “Jacket”. Waking up in your apartment you receive mysterious messages on your phone with the underlying task of killing everyone at the named location. Once the area is cleared of enemies, this unnamed killer then travels to one of a variety of locations, be it a bar, video store or pizza shop. Where time after time, he is met by the same attendant (no matter the store) who then offers some insight to the horrific mass murders that are occurring. (As well as free products from that particular store)
This independent developer presents a game with courageous style, illustrates a very basic story but is explored wonderfully through the use of locations and conversation between different characters.
