"My friend Pedro" on the test: a slow indie shooter



In a slow motion, everything looks more aesthetic – especially incredibly fast action scenes. This is not only known for the slow Hong Kong Opera of John Woo and the bullet time of the "Matrix". Video games have used slow motion effects for a long time as mechanical elements of the game, for example to perform acrobatic jumps and wild shooting of Max Payne. Indie game My friend Pedro (Windows, Switch, 16.79 euros) may now feel like a new stylistic term in terms of a slow motion of video games, because such a consistent combination of acrobatics, absurdly bombastic shooter and aesthetic slowness has never been celebrated.
