Cruelty Squad is a tactical first person shooter set in the hardcore gig economy of corporate liquidations. You're an emotionally dead combat-substance fueled grunt of Cruelty Squad, a depraved subsidiary company tasked with performing wetworks for its host conglomerate. Will you make the Corporate Arch Demoness proud or succumb to bitter tears of failure?

Title
Rainbow Six and other retro shooters as interpolated by crude 2000s internet art. Revenge of the Sunfish gone "cyberpunk". Caustic and abrasive in a way the newer commercial indie fears, to not damage the well-maintained hedges in accessibility. Goofy writing styled laid on themes of the modern tech ideals exaggerated. Visual style almost accidentally places it in opposition of the "boomer shooter" revival, graphics and sound splattering to the frame in a manner too garish to be easily nostalgic for many.
Quite possibly the first true case of Godot Engine kino.

Title
A fun and challenging tactical shooter
Cruelty squad is definitely one of the most unique shooters ever. Boasting a huge arsenal of weapons with many ways to approach each mission and of course an ingame stock market that you can access at any time to become a multi trillionaire in the game and buy all the items.

The art style is like no other game and personally i really love it, the asthetics are purposely bleak, badly drawn essentially repulsing too look at sometimes and that is really the charm. One of the ugliest games which makes it one of the best visually. the mechanics are so deep it would probably take me 100 hours to master all the items. Its just an all around great game, maybe not one of my favourites im a bit of a casual gamer when it comes to fps games and ive got to say this might be the hardest fps ever

Best Tactical shooter

Title
POWER IN MISERY
Bizarre, revolting and wholly unhinged. This game is one of the weirdest things I've ever played, when I first gave this a go I thought it was a joke, and I didn't play it for ages but I recently came back and have had the time of my life playing it. Once you fully get over the initial difficulty and get yourself a few different weapons scattered throughout the different levels (I highly recommend grabbing the silenced SMG on Sin Space Engineering) you can really start to make this game your bitch, even more so once you unlock the grappendix, allowing you to fling yourself across the map like Tarzan high on Adderall. Running through the levels and endorsing the chaos by murdering everyone with your host of implants and WMDs. On top of all the fantastic gameplay the setting and satire the game presents you is fantastic, even though this game does look like it was made by someone who took all the Acid available on earth, the satire of corporate culture and capitalism in general is fantastic! Easily the best example of this is Mall Madness where you're tasked with killing the Mayor who is proposing a "Revolutionary" 1% corporate tax rate. This also gets you questioning if you really are the good guy in all this or just a pawn of this corporate hellscape.

Overall, once I got the hang of this game I had an absolute blast, I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of FPS games or just wants to experience one of the most bizarre yet enjoyable games out there.

Title
a dystopian gem hidden within layers of sihtposts.
let's start by addressing the elephant in the room: the visuals feel like passing your eyes through a cheese grater. they feel like they were made in MSPaint or Photoshop by an 11-year old, but there's an artistic intention behind this choice, albeit a very unpleasant one.

once you've gotten accustomed to the visuals, the game reveals itself to be a really good shooter with a very dark dystopian story and some really fun controls. it can be frustrating at first, but the learning curve is pleasant, and not as sharp as might seem at first.

not recommended while high on Benadryl.

    Trying to get into the game was insanely hard, it's hard to get the snowball rolling, but once you do and can confidently unlock new stuff and grind money, it gets so fun

      it's gets progressively easier. you start off with weaker weapons and no upgrades but as you make money and unlock more it definitely gets easier to kill enemies more than the difficulty of enemies scales up in the later levels respectively

    I really wish the game taught you the basics sooner because it did make it a bit difficult to pick up, but I've really been enjoying it now that I understand the mechanics
