For all you older gamers out there, none of you can remember a better gaming era than some of the classics. You may even have been around during the era of the first DOOM and Quake games. I wasn’t since I was a 2000 baby, but I know that was a big time for a lot of you. If you’ve been missing those days though, then do I have some news from you. Saibot Studios and Nimble Giant are happy to announce that Hellbound, their 90s shooter brought to modern-day, is now available. Users on PC can experience the game with even a discount if you buy it soon. You can find the launch trailer for Hellbound below.
Hellbound puts you in the boots of Hellgore, a towering brute. Hell has become a gruesome, disgusting mess that is a shell of its former self. As Hellgore, you have one goal and one goal only. Shoot everything in sight. Inspired by the classic 90s shooters we know and love, players will venture through hell and slaughter demons to rack up massive kill streaks. The game may look and run like a modern title, but that gameplay is going to feel incredibly familiar. If you were born too late like me, maybe this is your chance to get a taste of the 90s without the graphics tagged on.
I’m excited about Hellbound, and it seems the teams behind it are as well. Nicolas Maier, CTO of Nimble Giant Entertainment, had the following to say:
The passionate and ambitious Latin American teams at Saibot Studios and Nimble Giant Entertainment have managed to accomplish a lot and we couldn’t be more proud of the result, in what is our first release as a publisher,”
Hellbound is available on Steam for $14.99. In celebration of the launch, it’s available for 20% off that price. Are you excited to run and gun like it’s the 90s?
