'Asteroids' travels to the Chilly Struggle and past in 'VEC9'
Asteroids is the quintessential vector arcade recreation, that includes a stark black background and easy, geometric pictures representing spaceships, bullets and floating bits of area rock. Now, that visible style will get a contemporary improve in VEC9, a 3D vector arcade recreation a few cryogenically frozen USSR pilot who awakens 30 years after the autumn of the Soviet Union and assumes the American army violently overthrew his nation’s reign. The pilot’s mission is to assault main American cities in a spaceship outfitted with an enormous laser and a sequence gun, as Motherboard describes. VEC9 creators and tech tinkerers Andrew Reitano, Michael Dooley and Todd Bailey created an enormous, blinking cupboard for VEC9, full with an enormous controller that Motherboard says was initially designed for an M1 Abrams tank. The entire VEC9 shebang — together with retro-styled full-movement video cutscenes — shall be on show at Chicago’s Logan Arcade beginning November seventh.
