The time has come and we can finally announce our game’s title. Dark fantasy FPP hack & slash which we revealed last year under the working title Project Hell has evolved into Hellraid. A thrilling mix of genres that we like to call a first-person co-op slasher. Those few words represent the general idea for our game. Let me tell you more about it.
From the first-person perspective, player will be drawn into the game’s unique fantasy world right from the start to experience an entirely new level of hack & slash action. Our combat system is also far more advanced than simple repetitive clicking as it needs precision and good timing when striking enemies and parrying their attacks while the blood splashes all around – that’s why we use the term slasher.
Everyone will be able to play Hellraid in a story-driven campaign but our main focus is on cooperative multiplayer. Why? It’s simple. Fighting hordes of hellish monsters is far more exciting when you do it with friends. To make it even more satisfying we’ve added an element or coopetition between the players. Each action in the game, be it killing a monster or helping a dying companion, is rewarded with points. The best players will receive special rewards and climb up the leaderboards.
Finally to make Hellraid even more exciting we’ve designed a clever system we call, appropriately, the Game Master. It places loot and spawn different sets of enemies on the level as well as generates online challenges which makes each game a new and different experience.
We’ll reveal even more about the game in the coming weeks so keep an eye on our blog, new Facebook page and Twitter. As for now, please let us know in the comments what you think about Project Hell becoming Hellraid.
