immortal redneck fps rogue-lite coming april 25th in linux gaming news

Right now in gaming news, Immortal Redneck has been #announced for a #release on Steam. Hence an #FPS rogue-lite that is set in Egypt, which is releasing on April 25th for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Since the gameplay mixes old-school and first-person shooter action with those rogue-lite mechanics. Hence this Unity based title is some crazy gameplay. Players will use twitch controls in the randomly generated dungeons. Complete with a skill tree, perma-death and 9 different character classes.

So players take on the roll of the redneck on holiday in Egypt. Following a serious accident, you awake to find yourself mummified in ancient Egypt. From here players will have to learn how you survived the accident. Hence figuring out how you ended up in ancient Egypt. Since the answers are inside of the three death-laden pyramids. Each one is filled with a variety of monsters and bosses, news flash, they who want to kill you.


  • RogueLite mechanics: procedurally generated dungeons, classes, skills, permanent death. But with gameplay progression
  • Nine playable classes: all with different skill sets. Players can switch classes between each play through. Selecting the one most suitable for their current run
  • Complete skill tree: evolve your character. Buying equipment and weapons. Upgrading and acquiring new skills
  • History Mode: single player game mode. Clear all the pyramids in order to complete the game.
  • Twitch Quest: special mode for streamers integrated with the Twitch API
  • Over 50 different weapons: traditional firearms, magical, mythological, futuristic. Or just plain weird weapons including a Potato Launcher. You name it, this game has it.
  • Over 100 scroll modifiers: Each scroll picked up in-game changes your current run, for good (convert your enemies in to chickens) or for bad (reduces your speed of movement) and everything in between!
  • Huge bosses: two in each pyramid
  • Merchant: Buy equipment and supplies that will be maintained between different games, even when you die
  • Skill Rooms: hone your skills in rooms focused on platforming and avoiding a variety of traps

Since the whole FPS rogue-lite concept of Immortal Redneck is created in a classic play style. Probably not news to anyone who grew up with FPS gaming. Hence mixing Quake 3 Arena with Tower of Guns, which made a debut in Humble Indie Bundle 13. Yet I’m still looking forward to the potatoe launcher.

What will be the launch price?
Is not decided yet

Will we see day-one Linux support?
Yes, thats the idea, if nothing goes wrong will be day1 support

There will be a 10% discount the first week.

Immortal Redneck will be available via Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows PC on April 25th.
