Don’t Bother Washing in Slain!

It is not easy being a hero. Monsters and creatures of unspeakable horror often try to kill off said hero; usually in a gory, grizzly fashion. For the hero Bathoyrn, this isn’t a dealbreaker. This guy lives in a gothic world washed with blood, which players can experience in Wolf Brew Games’ metal fueled 2D action platformer, Slain!.

Slain! forest

Players aid Bathoyrn in his quest to liberate 7 towers from 7 deadly overlords. Each tower is packed with puzzles, traps and monsters. At the center of the tower lies an overlord who must be slain. Players will likely encounter death and when they do, it greets them in a brutal and gruesome fashion. What kind of ways can the player die? Well, how about being mauled by werewolves, squashed by weights, torn apart by blades, or disintegrated by floating monstrosities. The game will clock in at over 15 hours, featuring 3 unique weapons to choose from, and more bosses than Bathoyrn can swing a sword at.
