WET is a video game developed by Artificial Mind and Movement and published by Bethesda Softworks for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game is an acrobatic shooter starring a female heroine named Rubi Malone.
WET is an action game that combines shooting and swordplay with stylish acrobatics. The main character, Rubi, carries twin pistols (revolvers) and a sword, and can fire whilst jumping, sliding on her knees, climbing, and running on walls. During these acrobatic actions, the game will enter slow motion, and she will automatically aim at a second enemy, allowing the player to shoot at two enemies at once. She can also combine her attacks, such as wall running off a person, or performing a sword uppercut while sliding. Racking up kills and collecting multiplier icons gains multipliers, which increase score and the rate at which Rubi regenerates health. Rubi can also regain health by finding bottles of whiskey; when activated, she takes a swig from the bottle, then throws the bottle into the air and shoots it.
In some sections of the game, Rubi's face will get covered in blood and she will go into a murderous rage. These sections are presented in noir-like cell-shaded style, with bold red, black and white visuals. Rubi's attacks become faster and stronger to fight against large amounts of enemies during these sections. There are also motorway sections that feature shooting integrated with quick time events.
"When Rubi Malone, a gun-for-hire, agrees to fix a wealthy man's problem by finding and brining back his wayward son, she thinks it's all going to be cut and dry. She thought wrong. The job turns out to be more complicated than expected and the man who hired her isn't who he appears to be. On the run and looking for the man who betrayed her, Rubi is leaving a massive body count in her wake."
