Sine Mora Review: Bullet Time, Meet Bullet Hell

Sine Mora is the product of a very unlikely union: Hungarian developer Digital Reality and the Suda 51-led Grasshopper Manufacture. Digital Reality is best known as the developers of several obscure strategy games for the PC while Grasshopper has made a name for itself by fitting more crazy into a game than any developer working today. With all that working against them, their partnership has resulted in an absolutely excellent game. (more…)

Grasshopper’s Sine Mora coming to XBLA on March 21

Suda 51 always has a few irons in the fire (knowing Suda, there’s likely a room in his house with literal irons in a literal fire) and in addition to Lollipop Chainsaw, the developer’s Grasshopper Manufacture is hard at work on Sine Mora for the Xbox Live Arcade. The game, which was co-developed by Digital Reality and published by Microsoft, has been given a release date (March 21), a price (1200 Microsoft Points or $15) and a new trailer where the main character gets killed a lot.

Say it with me… oh, Suda!

If Sine Mora has slipped under your radar until now, there’s a good reason for that. The game is a dieselpunk shoot ’em up, so radar hadn’t actually been invented yet. But that hasn’t stopped Grasshopper from putting your diesel-powered plane against a steady stream of armored zeppelins, angry trains, and one giant spider.

Say it with me… oh, Suda!
