BUTCHER 2D shooter launches on Steam

BUTCHER gory 2D shooter launches on Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows. All thank to the developer of King Arthurs Gold. A rather fast-paced 2D shooter game and a blood-soaked love letter to the early 90’s.

So after 3 years of development, gameplay will take players face to face with a cyborg. Who’s sole purpose is to eradicate the last remains of humanity. While your sole purpose is to annihilate anything that moves. Spoiler, things get messy.

Grab your weapon of choice (from chainsaw, through shotgun, to grenade launcher). While killing your way through underground hideouts, post-apocalyptic cities, jungles and more. And if you’re feeling creative, there are plenty other ways of ending your enemies’ misery. Such as hooks, lava pits, saws… no death will ever be the same.

BUTCHER. 2d shooter

BUTCHER Features:

  • Ultra-violent uncompromising carnage in the spirit of Doom and Quake (chainsaw included)
  • Skill-based gameplay mechanics
  • Release your inner artist, paint the walls with (permanent) blood (up to 4 million pixels available to be painted per level)
  • Use the environment (saws, hooks, lava pits, animals and other) to brutally dispose of your enemies
  • Choose from an array of weapons (featuring classics like chainsaw, railgun and the deadly grenade launcher)
  • Adorn more than 20 levels with the insides of your enemies
  • Soak in the dark atmosphere reinforced by a wicked, heavy soundtrack (while you kick corpses around)
  • Die painfully: melt in lava, become piranha food, get crushed by heavy doors… and more!

So if kicking corpses into a lava pit and adorning walls with blood is your idea of a good time, BUTCHER is THE game for you. Also well worth playing if you appreciate great mechanics that require some skill too. I personally find the challenge more about being in the right place at the right time. So watch your position.

BUTCHER launches now on on Steam with a 10% discount for Linux, Mac and Windows PC until October 12th.
