A few years in the past (nearly to the day!) we posted a couple of very promising upcoming recreation referred to as Mean Streets which was impressed by the mechanics of traditional boxing title Punch-Out! blended with visuals which might be an homage to the stylized look of Team Fortress 2. While that unique trailer is not accessible, it actually acquired an extremely constructive response on the time, each from commenters on our story and folk in our boards. Despite this, Mean Streets developer CraftShop Arts went quiet, and we have not heard any information on the challenge since. Well, till simply final week that’s, as a brand new thread in our boards has indicated that Mean Streets continues to be very a lot in growth and CrafShop has launched a brand new trailer displaying off a work-in-progress model of the sport.
Besides simply being completely attractive, I additionally love how seamlessly Mean Streets integrates its boxing battles. There’s an entire story to go together with the motion which follows you and your startup bouncer enterprise which sees you making some scratch by fixing issues in a hard faculty city the place jerks are operating rampant. Another twist on this story is that Mean Streets is the product of simply a few folks, and whereas initially meant as a free to play recreation they’ve now switched gears to make it a premium expertise and are at present hoping to get some funding behind the event to make that occur. Any millionaire boxing recreation followers on the market? Whatever the case, I sincerely hope Mean Streets finally ends up getting completed because it’s simply too darn promising to not get made. In the meantime, in the event you just like the look of this one then voice your help within the recreation’s discussion board thread.
