Publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment and developer Artificier have revealed Homicidal All-Stars, a single-player, turn-based strategy game set in a dystopian future where convicts and citizens alike compete to survive on a brutal reality game show. Featuring unique heroes and villains in a deep tactical experience complete with over-the-top violence, the game will launch on PC via Steam and GOG.com later this year. Check out the reveal trailer below:
In a future society rife with extreme income inequality, greedy corporations, climate change, civil unrest and war, Homicidal All-Stars is quite popular. Contestants will need to survive deadly urban areas littered with lethal traps, puzzles and killers who are armed to the teeth.
Each episode of Homicidal All-Stars brings an infernal new obstacle course with a distinct theme and challenges. Dodge and disarm traps, survive ambushes, look around for helpful sponsorship packages and of course, keep your guard up in case there are any nasty surprises from the show’s director. If you manage to survive, you’ll head backstage to rest, record a confessional, chat with fellow challengers and then level up and customise your loadout for the next night of carnage.
Here are some of the key features:
- Challenging Strategy Gameplay: Dive into a full campaign featuring deep tactical combat mechanics that will test your skills across a variety of hand-crafted levels.
