Right now in gaming news, a punk rock #apocalypse action RPG #releases. So players team up with friends to lead embattled punk rock band Charlie Murder. Hence an epic quest now #available on Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Since the original release was August 14, 2013 on Xbox360. Yet with the help of famed Linux porter Ethan Lee, we have native support once again. So go on and save the world from rival death metalers Gore Quaffer and their legions of evil.
Ah yes, so trying to define the action RPG is a challenge. As gaming is more of a brawler mixed with RPG elements. All while players hoard insane loot and buff their character. Therefore earning fans to unlock powerful finishers and team up moves.
While also getting tattoos to channel your “Anar-Chi,” and uncover mysterious relics. Which of course creates the players true aesthetic.
Charlie Murder Features:
- Play 4-player local or online co-op rpg brawler. Set in a punk rock apocalypse with 5 playable characters and alternate band unlocks
- Hoard insane loot to increase your uber 1337 stats (and look excellent)
- Earn the love of fans to unlock visceral finishers and team-up moves
- Ink up with tattoos to channel your inner “Anar-chi” and unleash powerful magic
So my first impression is interesting. Since I was expected to jump into gameplay and have to pick up some weapon. But that is not the case.
So instead, I was able to fight off the zombie hoard by picking up and throwing objects. These range from tires, severed heads, limbs and of course grenades. It really depends what’s lying around. Only to go on my quest of bloody melee combat domination. Hence completing against boss battles and picking up loot along the way. All very easily playable and manageable using the Steam Controller.
So chances are, if you like Punch Club or City Ransom: Underground. Then Charlie Murder is going to take gaming to the next level. With all of the blood and gore too.
Charlie Murder available now on Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. There is no launch discount news though, but the game is only priced at $9.99 USD.
