Netflix is taking its ambitious step forward in gaming with the release of an action-packed top down shooter.
“Kate: Collateral Damage” will launch next month on the online PC store Steam, which will go along with the US streaming giant’s recently released big-budget flick, “Kate.”
Kate follows the story of a deadly poisoned killer working in Tokyo who has less than 24 hours to seek revenge on the one who ordered the hit.
You take control of the central character on his quest to track down the Jacobite mob bosses responsible for his imminent death.
According to the accompanying game’s Steam listing, players will battle through the city in a “time-attack, action roguelike” inspired by the film.
You will battle against a timer that is ticking to your untimely demise. Players extend each run by killing enemies to delay the countdown.
“A time bar at the top of the screen continuously progresses to your inevitable death at the hands of the deadly radioactive poison Polonium 204,” reads the game’s description.
“Killing enemies slows the rate at which time elapses, providing your lethal accuracy.

“Exciting syringes, earned and unlocked through gameplay, can fully restore the time bar upon use, extending your run.
