Hellscreen: the new retro FPS on Kickstarter

‘’KILL, DIE, UPGRADE, REPEAT’’! Hellscreen is a fast paced retro inspired FPS (think Doom, Quake etc). It boasts surreal visuals, aggressive combat, transforming weapons and manipulative environments. The game is currently being funded via Kickstarter.

Created by ‘’Jamie Degen’’, this retro inspired FPS boasts Lo-Rez surreal visuals, fast action paced combat, upgradable weapons and if the slogan has any truth to it (‘’KILL, DIE, UPGRADE, REPEAT’’), extreme difficulty.

By the looks of things, it seems that the premise of Hellscreen is to go from level to level upgrading the right weapon for the job in order to advance.

What grabbed me though were the ‘’Doom-guy-at-a-rave-party’’ duo tone visuals. This already gives the game a unique flavor before even playing it!

The one problem I see with this unique visual style is the fact that everything might start to look the same. Hopefully the levels will be detailed enough to combat this potential issue!
Another little unique feature is the ‘’rear view mirror’’ mechanic to prevent ambushes.

Unfortunately, there is no demo available and it’s unconfirmed as to whether   one is even in the works, but you can check out the Kickstarter campaign here!
