"We really wanted and had yet to find a modern sprite-based shooter similar in looks and mechanics to Doom or the Build engine games that was more than just shooting monsters. We just had to make it happen." - said Bruno Beaudoin, Founder.
The Early Access release of the game, titled "Episode One", will feature over 32 weapons and will be crammed with variety and surprises. Mysterious non-intrusive story elements will guide players through nightmare after nightmare to eradicate evil while they collect treasures that they'll use to improve their abilities through a fun minigame. Stay tuned as more will be revealed leading up to release.
