Introduced at The Game Awards right now, Hellboy Internet of Wyrd is a “roguelite” motion game in manufacturing by West of Lifeless studio Upstream Arcade, with a narrative written “in partnership with” Darkish Horse Comics and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.
“This roguelite motion journey game options monstrous toe-to-toe brawling,” reads the game’s Steam web page. “Just like the comics, the game sends Hellboy on a collection of vastly completely different and wholly distinctive adventures; and whereas these tales stand on their very own, they’re all tied to the mysterious legacy of The Butterfly Home.”
The story of The Butterfly Home, a gateway “right into a horrible and engaging dimension referred to as The Wyrd,” sounds fairly cool. Hellboy lore is usually new to me (outdoors of the Ron Perlman films), and the promise of “perverse angles and non-Euclidean geometries” has me .
The instantly putting factor about Hellboy Internet of Wyrd, although, is the game’s thick-lined artwork model, which renders shadows as massive flat fields of black. Emulating 2D animation and comedian e book artwork with realtime 3D rendering can miss arduous, however not less than within the trailer, Internet of Wyrd appears to be like fairly badass to me, if presumably disorienting in moments of fight where silhouettes get misplaced within the darkness.
As for that fight, we’ll “chain collectively hard-hitting melee and ranged assaults to struggle a various array of more and more nightmarish enemies,” in accordance with the Steam web page.
Internet of Wyrd would not have a launch date but. Its Steam web page says “to be introduced.”
