Barcelona-based game developer Big Star Games has confirmed a new title based on director Quentin Tarantino’s 1992 cult hit. “#Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days” is a top-down shooter revolving around the six main characters: Mr. Blonde, Mr. Blue, Mr. Brown, Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink and Mr. White. Players get to control each one of them and levels will be based on various scenarios and heists. The game is up for release via Steam in the spring and will make its way to the Xbox consoles in late 2017.

Gameplay details: what’s known so far

The upcoming game will include a feature that the devs have dubbed Time Back – it’s supposed to make “Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days gameplay more exciting, as what’s seen from the trailer.

This feature will allow players to rewind and replay parts of the game to progress through levels like a true badass. For instance, players will start off the level as one character. Time Back will allow for a second character to hop into the level, work efficiently with the first character that’ll then mirror what the previously character actually did.

“By taking control of different characters for overlapping bursts of time, players must utilize the strengths of each squad member to carry out the game’s missions,” Big Star Games CEO Liam Patton explained in a statement. Every move will affect the result of the game, which Patton described as the game’s “butterfly effect.”

We’re 25 years into the massive film career of the erratic Quentin Tarantino, which makes it easy to forget the his first feature-length film that is “Reservoir Dogs” was not immediately appreciated.

The crime film did create a noise when it came out in 1992, but mixed reviews made its status quite questionable. Upon the release of the more popular Pulp Fiction in 1994, however, Tarantino’s career blew out of proportion and that was when people actually realized the previously released QT-helmed movie was actually great.

The film was previously adapted into a 2006 release for the PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC, but gameplay was poorly received. The fate of “Bloody Daysremains to be seen, but given it is Big Star’s first PC and console-focused release, much is expected. Fortunately, it won’t be long for fans find out. #Video Game
