Pixelated Slaughterfest "Butcher" Gets Release Date
Transhuman Design, the developers of King Arthur's Gold, have released a new trailer for their upcoming buffet of carnage Butcher.
Butcher is a 2D Shooter/Action platformer created with the sole purpose of making a fun game about crazy over the top, bloody violence, and describes itself on its Steam page as "a blood-soaked love letter to the early 90s."
The plot is simple and is a suitable setup for the kind of mindless violence that Butcher seems to be going for. You are a cyborg tasked with eradicating the last remains of humanity; And have no mercy for their pain. In short: Go nuts.
The game will feature a wide variety of weapons from chainsaws to grenade launchers, as well as an assortment of environments ranging from jungles to post-apocalyptic cities, all wrapped up in a gory visual style inspired by the likes of Doom and Quake.
Butcher currently has a planned ballpark release date of Fall 2016, and will be available for download on Steam.
