Retro-Inspired Horror FPS “Souldead” Joins Steam Next Fest
Demo demons? Demon demo?
As part of Steam Next Fest, one-man game developer Heathen Software has released a free demo for its upcoming first-person shooter Souldead.
Inspired by classic FPS games like DOOM, Quake and Hexen, Souldead is the creation of Tomasz Salacinski, a former member of a metal band who wanted to make the ultimate kind of game that “he himself would love to play.”
Souldead puts players in a wide variety of environments, all with one thing in common: they’re all teeming with deadly demons who want to eat your face (probably) and drag your soul to Hell (almost certainly).
Here’s the official breakdown of Souldead from Heathen Software, followed by the latest trailer:
Souldead is a fast-paced FPS action game with the main focus on speed, dynamism and a few unique mechanics.
In Souldead, you are given access to an exclusive arsenal of weapons. With black magic, you can take advantage of skills such as double jump or dash. In addition, the arsenal includes a magical shotgun, the ammunition of which is made of sucked mana.
The game begins in a dark fantasy world that is devoured by demons. Our journey will pass through different regions, including Fantasy World in the demo or Victorian England and more levels in the full game.
It is worth mentioning that difficulty levels in the game are quite diverse. We can choose the levels from “I’m a baby” to “I’m a monster”.
Play the demo today and see if you’re a baby or a real monster!
You can play the free demo of Souldead now until 10 October as part of Steam Next Fest.
