HYPERVIOLENT Releases This Week!

It has today been announced that the Old-School Sci-Fi shooter HYPERVIOLENT will launch onto PC early access on April 6th 2023. The game is being developed by Terminist Arcade and published by Fulqrum Publishing. It will be available on Steam, GOG, and Epic Games Store.

HYPERVIOLENT is a Brutal Old-School Shooter!

The game is inspired by classic sprite-based 3D games from the good ol’ 90s. You know the types, Wolfenstein, Doom, Quake… If you don’t know of any of these from the 90s then you really should go look them up. They’re essentially the grandfathers of FPS games!

HYPERVIOLENT sees players stranded on a remote asteroid-based mining colony called Commodus Asteroid 27-C. As they always do, things go haywire and you’re soon to be wielding some top-notch weapons to slay the monstrous foes in your way. Speaking of guns, the game has an extensive array of melee and guns that can be dual-wielded providing the player with endless combinations of their weapons.

The devs have released an early access roadmap and also key features of the game which you can see below.
