Yes, you read that right - explosive squirrels. Part prehistoric wasteland, part mutant-filled fantasy, Zeno Clash
has a setting all its own. There as some really odd concepts moving about Zeno Clash
, but the universe has such a nice unity that things like blind snipers hurling exploding squirrels from atop dinosaurs (I mentioned the dinosaurs, right?) seem commonplace. Even better, the exploding squirrels make complete and total sense in the grand scheme of things. The sniper can't see, but he can hear the exploding squirrels as they scurry towards you. Your only resort -- kick the squirrels before they blow up, hopefully throwing him off long enough to do a little sniping of your own.
The story holding all of this mayhem together is vague, but involves your character and his sister attempting to figure out why you were exiled from home. Story is told in a broken fashion, jumping between flashbacks, and includes everything from murder plots to larger conspiracies. I could try to explain it, but that would spoil some of the fun.
