Squad-based Sick City plans closed alpha for June

The company announced this week that it is developing a post-apocalyptic tactical combat title that will pit squads of four players against each other to control resources and dominate a city landscape.

The goal is clear: own the streets of Sick City.”

Just that header visual and the vague description make it sound almost like Smash + Grab. Shame that game died so early. Would be cool to see something similar to it.
