Kite refers to the classic gaming trope 'kiting'. When a player is being chased by an enemy, together they resemble someone flying a kite, as if the player had the enemy on a string and was leading it along. No surprise, Kite's gameplay revovles around this mechanic. Equiped with turbo speed and bullet time for slow motion aiming or dodging the player has a wealth of capabilites to assist them with the chase. Pulling inspiration from '90s era gaming and injecting it with modern controls and intricate customization, Kite is a love letter from the retro future to the classic twin stick shooter. Can you kite?
