About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Laika: Aged Through Blood is a western-inspired motorvania set in a postapocalyptic desert.

Laika: Aged Through Blood is the stroy about a tribe oppressed by occupant forces, and the personal story of a mother coyote warrior who descends on an endless path of vengeance to take back what her people lost.

Warm up your bike and enter a sand strewn postapocalyptic world in Laika: Aged Through Blood. In this anthropomorphic society, different factions vie for control of the desert's many outposts.

Take control of a young Coyote warrior as she rides her motorbike on a path of vengeance, taking back the land that her tribe has lost. This motorvania game has a huge, openly explorable world filled with NPCs to meet, secrets to discover and enemies to destroy.

Drive, jump and fight your way through the huge hand-drawn world on your trustworthy motorbike as you ride your way through an epic story told over 6 chapters. Meet NPCs to take on new missions and earn new gear. Race through the sandy desert and perform dangerous jumps, shoot enemies in slowmo and reload your gun by performing a backflip! Use skill-based power-ups and persist challenging battles against big bosses!

The new trailer shows off the unique motorbike-bound movement, combat mechanics and striking hand-painted visuals.

“We’re really excited to re-introduce the world to Laika: Aged Through Blood with our new trailer that debuted at the Future Game Show,” said Ivan Papiol, Artist at Brainwash Gang. “Our motorised take on the metroidvania formula makes it unlike any other game out there and in combination with our art style, story and characters, we hope players will fall in love with Laika like we all have!”

As part of Steam Next Fest, a playable PC demo will be available on June 19, 2023 via Steam.
