OK, this one is weird. Devolver Digital have proudly announced the release date of STRAFE, an uber-gory first-person shooter by Pixel Titans (really, the amount of blood and guts in this game is ridiculous). The game is coming out on Steam on March 28, 2017 – so says the new trailer.
STRAFE intends to preserve the experience of 1990s’ shooters with its high-speed gameplay, 32-bit color graphics and uncompromising approach to violence (it even has a banned commercial, which you really shouldn’t watch while eating). Rules are simple: you are put in the shoes of a soldier who runs through endless, randomly generated corridors and shoots everyone he encounters. Upon dying enemies explode with almost unending fountains of blood, which turn everything around them grittily red – this, by the way, is governed by an in-house technology called Uber-Gore Tech V2.0. The game also offers a variety of upgradeable weapons and loads of secrets to uncover. Interestingly, STRAFE features Oculus Rift support so that you can take a dive in the bloodbath.
