ULTRAKILL: A Retro FPS Game Inspired by the Best Shooters of the ’90s.
In the world of indie gaming, a new contender has emerged to deliver an adrenaline-fueled experience that harkens back to the glory days of '90s shooters. ULTRAKILL, the brainchild of Finnish developer Arsi "Hakita" Patala and published by New Blood Interactive, is an electrifying homage to classic FPS titles, blending elements of Quake, Doom (2016), and even the stylish chaos of Devil May Cry.
ULTRAKILL isn't your run-of-the-mill shooter; it's a symphony of violence, a pixelated ballet of blood and bullets. This fast-paced ultraviolent retro FPS introduces a unique twist by marrying the scoring mechanics of character action games with the raw, unapologetic brutality reminiscent of the golden era of shooters. As players dive into the game, they'll find themselves ripping apart enemies with an arsenal of destructive weapons, each offering multiple variations to suit their playstyle.
Set in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity has vanished, leaving behind only machines fueled by blood, ULTRAKILL presents a relentless narrative where blood is not only a source of energy but also a dwindling resource. Machines plunge into the depths of Hell in a frenzied hunt for more, and players must navigate this chaotic landscape as a lone survivor. With a range of movement abilities at their disposal, players must stay nimble to evade the onslaught of undead, demons, and other mechanized monstrosities.
In ULTRAKILL, speed and finesse are paramount. Players are incentivized to eliminate foes with unparalleled style, amassing combos and points that can be invested in various weapon variations between missions. The challenge doesn't stop there – mastering levels to achieve high ranks and tackle optional challenges is the key to unlocking the game's true potential. Drawing inspiration from Dante's Inferno, the game's campaign environments are as varied as they are intriguing, offering hidden secrets for intrepid explorers to uncover.
The game is currently available for early access on Steam here.
