Good news colleagues! There’s an all-new reason to jump back into Neat Corp’s Budget Cuts this Valentine’s Day.
The indie dev today launched Budget Cuts Arcade. It’s a new mode for the original game that you can access by finding the arcade cabinet in the menu. As the name suggests, Arcade Mode is all about scoring. It includes four brand new levels that will push your sneaking skills to the absolute limit. There’s a local leaderboard system so you can challenge friends to beat your best and three difficulty levels will help you find the right fit. Eight new collectibles can also be found in this mode.
Unsurprisingly, the mode is also intended for use in VR arcades around the world.
It’s great to see Budget Cuts getting more content. The campaign’s short length was one of our main complaints when we reviewed the game last year.
That’s not all that’s new in this update, though. There are some tweaks made to the game that make the hardest difficulty “a bit more difficult” and fix various other bugs. Again, issues with bugs were one of the biggest talking points in our review, so we welcome any fixes. To celebrate the launch, Budget Cuts is set to have a half-price sale for a few days, too.
Expect more from Budget Cuts later this year. Last month we reported that Neat Corp is bringing the game to Sony’s PSVR headset, and may even port it to Oculus Quest too. Fingers crossed we hear more about that soon.
