The Collective's 2006 graffiti-tagging platformer Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure
gets a new lease on life this week thanks to a surprise Steam release
engineered by Hotline Miami
publisher Devolver Digital
tells a tale in which enterprising graffiti artist Trane sets out to make his mark on the New Radius Slums. Along the way, his crew battles a government-issued task force ordered to shoot graffiti taggers on sight. Harsh.
Gameplay mixes Prince of Persia
-styled parkour and urban exploration with graffiti-tagging mechanics that recall Jet Set Radio
Fashion designer and game licensor Marc Ecko expressed a desire
to head up a sequel as recently as 2009, but to date, no news regarding a follow-up has emerged.
