Arc is an arcade mashup that combines run and jump platformer action with reticule controlled shooting. The game features 4-player cooperative play on the same console/screen. Each player can freely toggle between 2 complementary modes of play, Reticule Mode and Marine Mode. Which mode you choose depends on the current threat. Enemies can appear in two different planes of the game, the near plane and the far plane. Each player mode specializes in attacking one of these 2 planes. Reticule Reticule mode can attack enemies in both planes. It has extremely powerful shots but a limited amount of ammo. Marine Marines can only attack enemies in the near plane. They have unlimited ammo and can also pick up ammo drops to replenish the reticule mode ammo for all players. Upgrades Players level up through the course of the game. There is also an in-game store where players can purchase/upgrade weapons and acquire utilities like a jetpack, automated drone turrets and more!

@McFunkypants Exactly. They don't know/care that AAA games represent some crazy ratio of XXX man hours per second of game play.

@McFunkypants I don't think they're bad. I think they're just ignorant. We live in an era where everything is amazing and they're jaded.
