Never Stop Sneakin' is a Pitch-Perfect Comedic Take on Metal Gear Solid

The next game from the developers that brought you Dust: An Elysian Tail

The developers behind Dust: An Elysian Tail, Humble Hearts, announced its next game, Never Stop Sneakin, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. The trailer paints a decidedly comedic take on the tactical espionage drama of Metal Gear Solid.

The announcement trailer lays out Never Stop Sneakin's gonzo premise. A mad time traveler named Amadeus Guildenstern has gone back in time and kidnapped all the presidents of the United States. His evil cabal of allies, dubbed the "Executive Branch of Evil", include two senators on the Subcommittee of Pain, Doctor Acula (probably a vampire), and Vice President Helicopter (a real helicopter and presumably the tie-breaking vote in the Senate).

The trailer even includes a very Snake Eater-esque theme that's perfect for Never Stop Sneakin's homage to Metal Gear Solid.

According to Humble Hearts' Dean Dodrill, Never Stop Sneakin' is a purposeful departure from his previous game, the 2D side-scrolling Dust. Never Stop Sneakin' is fully-polygonal and procedurally generated with a top-down perspective.

Basically, Never Stop Sneakin' looks absolutely absurd and I can't wait to play it when it comes on the Switch this holiday.
