Dusk creator unveils ‘microshooter’ meant to be completed in a single sitting

New Blood member and Dusk creator David Szymanski has announced his next project, Chop Goblins (opens in new tab), a “bite-sized” FPS where you squash goblins throughout time and space. The shooter’s set to release on January 2, with a projected runtime of about 30 minutes.

I’m really taken with the game’s time travel schtick. After accidentally unleashing the little buggers in a botched museum heist, you do battle with them in levels pulled from throughout history, including ancient Greece and 19th century Transylvania. It reminds me of the time travel main campaign from Daikatana, or else the bracingly disjointed level variety of Serious Sam or Painkiller.
