Driven Bats is a top-down, open world, non-linear, 8-bit adventure starring a lovable and delusional vigilante. The game is set in a world constructed by his memories of the comic books with which he surrounded himself- and now finds himself living in.
The player will find whatever triggered the world around the "hero" to spiral into comic book mayhem has already occurred, and must use their superior detective skills to deduce for themselves what it was. There are multiple endings to the game based on your discoveries and decisions, and will even affect answers to questions like:
"Who am I?" "Why am I fighting people out in public dressed like that?" and "Why is everything
out to kill me
As to gameplay, expect a blend of what you remember from the original Legend of Zelda and homages to other classic NES games. Throughout your exploration of the hero's city, from the streets to the sewers, and clubs to the rooftops, perspective transitions flawlessly from top-down to side-scrolling hijinks without the player missing a beat, even in the heat of combat.
