Handcop looks both hilarious and horrifying already

Handcop is a function in development “fist person shooter” which is just as neat as it is horrifying. This wacky prodecurally-animated cop hand has a few legs and chest hair for goodness sake. I can not determine if three “legs” is much better or even worse than three finger “arms”. Oh, and of program officier Michael McWrist is running about carrying a large gun. It’s comparatively early times for Handcop suitable now, it appears like, but its wacky animations are by now catching the internet’s interest.&#13

It was well-obtained ample that Ramos determined to maintain performing on it, primary to the recent iteration of Handcop.&#13

As is a typical chorus for indie developers although, Ramos experienced operate into concerns acquiring his silly shooter found. Just before this thirty day period, he posted on Twitter lamenting the time invested making an attempt to market it in the #screenshotsaturday hashtag with tiny payoff. “It was demanding and I skipped excellent time with my wife and my toddler. I determined to hardly ever do that once more” he told IGN.&#13

Despite that, officer McWrist could have a bit of monkey’s paw in him simply because Handcop confident has gotten seen now. The net is a fickle group and decided to skyrocket Ramos’s animation on to Reddit’s front site not lengthy just after. “This weekend I couldn’t slumber because my cellphone did not cease, [I had so] numerous messages from people today stating they want to make a recreation with this, this must be a sport, or how strange this character is,” he mentioned. With all that focus, Ramos is hoping he could possibly be ready to court docket a publisher and some added palms for a improvement staff to realise his dream of basically directing a recreation.&#13
