Yeah, that one liner really should have been Multiplayer just got... Multiplayer-ed.

But otherwise? Looking good - now I just need a computer that I can play it on, what with my X360 not having a mouse input...

One thing I found funny though is how the designer cites Tarantino, a guy who makes tributes to exploitation films, instead of a true blue exploitation filmmaker like Lucio Fulci, Lloyd Kaufman, or Roger Corman. I understand that this game is also supposed to be a tribute, but the fact that it's a tribute to a tribute is just something I find humorous.

Looks pretty snazzy. It'd be great to see more action/exploitation types of characters in it, like some badass blaxploitation martial-arts-slash-supercop type a guy.
