After a successful crowdfunding campaign, the brutal dark fantasy game Slain! will be hitting PC and consoles on December 9th. And you’d better bring an umbrella because it’s gonna be soaked in gore.

Synopsis:
A heavy metal-inspired combat puzzle with gore galore. Stunning visuals and true old school gameplay accompanied by the most metal soundtrack you’ve ever heard. Prepare to be Slain!

Players control Bathoryn, a hero in a Gothic world, seeking to liberate seven great towers from seven deadly overlords.

Bathoryn must battle his way through a doomed land packed with gruesome pixel art foes before ascending (or sometimes descending) each tower, defeating puzzles, traps and monsters alike. At the heart of each tower, he must confront a mighty overlord. Defeat it and Bathoryn’s quest continues. Fail, and you’ll die gruesomely – mauled by werewolves, disintegrated by floating monstrosities, squashed by great weights, or torn apart by hidden blades. And you will fail…

Wolf Brew Games and Digerati are excited to announce Curt Victor Bryant (formally of Celtic Frost) will be recording the full soundtrack for Slain! Can the game get any more metal? Umm nope.

Well I don’t know about you, but the promise of heavy metal and gore galore certainly got me hooked! I wish more publishers would use the violence in their games as a selling point rather than something to be shy about.

Prepare to be Slain! on December 9th!
