Finding My Inner Captain With Muse Games At PAX West

One of the last minute changes to my schedule had me visiting Muse Games in their PR suite to check out two games. The first was a familiar sight as I got a chance to play Guns Of Icarus Alliance, but this particular version was for the PlayStation 4 as the game is finally leaving the confines of PC and hitting the console market. Now, personally speaking, I hate being a pilot. Great gunner and engineer, lousy piloting skills. However, once I had the PS4 controls in my hands, I became amazing! I have zero clue what the difference maker was between having free control on a keyboard and having confined controls on a proper controller, but I enjoyed the console version of the game a lot.

The second game, which you’ll see pictures of below, is a tablet and smartphone game called Hamsterdam. In it, you basically play a kung-fu hamster who uses several moves against rodent-like opponents to clear the streets. A lot of tapping and timed attacks are what you’re looking at when the game eventually gets released sometime next year. Overall, a pretty cool meeting with most of my time spent kicking all sorts of ass in Guns Of Icarus, which I can’t wait for Muse Games to release on PS4. The app wasn’t too shabby either.
