Developer David Pittman and Minor Key Games have announced that Slayer Shock, a procedurally-generated first-person action RPG heavily influenced by Buffy the Vampire Slayer, will be released for the PC on September 29. But players who pre-order the game now through Itch.io will receive instant access to the beta version.
Slayer Shock further leans on its late 90s influence with a retro-inspired look that wouldn’t be out of place on teh Nintendo 64:
Operating from your headquarters at a college coffee shop, you take missions to patrol the streets, rescue captive humans, and weaken the undead threat. A team of fellow vampire slayers assists you from HQ, providing new weapons, skills, and research.
With a format that lovingly recalls scripted television (missions are “episodes”, each campaign is a “season”), Slayer Shock blends immersive first-person action, lightweight strategy, and procedural narrative into a uniquely thrilling experience.
Finally, Pittman and Minor Key Games have released a new trailer for Slayer Shock, and its been embedded above.
