Developer Nekki today released the first gameplay of its upcoming gun fu action game SPINE. Revealed at the PC Gaming Show: Most Wanted, the trailer showcases SPINE’s futuristic cyberpunk world, close-quarter gunfights, spectacular combat system, movie-like action experience, and vibrant graffiti aesthetic.
