Tatjana Vejnovic of The Koalition writes: Primarily focusing on mobile games, Scars Above is Mad Head Games’ first console release. The Serbian development team is bringing a new roguelike to the table, and for $40 USD, it’s a damn good deal. Initially announced at Gamescom 2022, Scars Above promises satisfying challenges, enticing boss fights, and immersive environments.
Games Asylum: "This third-person sci-fi shooter has a ‘knowledge is power’ ethos, putting the fate of astronaut Kate Ward and her crewmates in our hands. Kate isn’t a battle-hardened grunt, an elusive bounty hunter, or a grizzled merc – she’s a scientist and an engineer, preferring to use brain over brawn. Rest assured that she won’t be breaking boulders with her bare fists or bashing an enemy’s brains out using the butt of a rifle. Instead, Kate harnesses the power of the elements – much like a Pokémon trainer."
From the Developer’s Mad Head Games, Scars Above is a fairly challenging sci-ﬁ third-person action-adventure shooter with an interesting story and very mysterious lore. Mad Head Games also brought us games such as the Nevertales franchise and Rite of Passage. I haven’t seen many of the titles they have made before, but it seems to me that they are more of a mobile games developer and this seems to be their first major console-related title.
