“This game will be bigger than Skyrim!” – Bill Corbett, Rifftrax/Mystery Science Theater 3000
MANOS: The Hands of Fate is a bonafide cult classic thanks to the folks behind Mystery Science Theater 3000. Now, the video game development team FreakZone Games brings us their “Director’s Cut” of the acclaimed 16-bit style platformer that debuted in 2012. The game has been enhanced and expanded and is now available on Steam. It’s even being sold right now for 10% off to celebrate the launch. Check out the official synopsis and have a look at the trailer below:
Remember how every film had it’s own platform game adaptation? When every man, woman, child, animal and inanimate object were out to get your character? When the streets were filled with bats, ghosts and Frankenstein monsters? MANOS: Director’s Cut will take you back to the absurd adaptations of the past!
Lost on their vacation, Mike and his family have wandered the desert trying to find a place to stay, only to wind up in the mysterious Valley Lodge. Maintained by Torgo, an unusual man/satyr who “takes care of the place while The Master is away”, the hotel is swimming with paranormal activity which Mike has to brave through to find his now missing family. Who is The Master, and what does he want with Mike’s family? Armed with his trusty revolver, Mike will have to wander the haunted halls, venture out into the desert, uncover a dark temple and battle the forces of darkness to find out!
