BUTCHER to spray blood on Xbox One in May

Fast-paced 2D shooter and a blood-soaked love letter to the cult classics of the genre, BUTCHER – developed by Transhuman Design – will be published on Xbox One by Crunching Koalas on May 10.

As a cyborg programmed to eradicate the last vestige of humanity, your sole purpose is to annihilate anything that moves. Grab your weapon of choice (from chainsaw, through shotgun, to grenade launcher) and kill your way through underground hideouts, post-apocalyptic cities, jungles and more. And if you’re feeling creative, there are plenty other ways of ending your enemies’ misery – hooks, lava pits, saws… no death will ever be the same.

If kicking corpses into a lava pit and adorning walls with blood is your idea of a good time, then it seems BUTCHER may well be the game for you.

Featuring:

•Ultra-violent uncompromising carnage in the spirit of Doom and Quake (chainsaw included).

•Release your inner artist, paint the walls with (permanent) blood (up to 4 million pixels available to be painted per level).

•Use the environment (saws, hooks, lava pits, animals and other) to brutally dispose of your enemies.

•Put your reflex and patience to the ultimate test.

•Choose from an array of weapons (featuring classics like chainsaw, railgun and the deadly grenade launcher).

•Soak in the dark atmosphere reinforced by a wicked, heavy soundtrack (while you kick corpses around).

•Die painfully: melt in lava, become piranha food, get crushed by heavy doors… and more!

BUTCHER certainly sounds like it lives up to its name and the classics it means to imitate. We’ll know more in just over a week.

Nearly time to Rise and Shine

Developers Adult Swim Games and Super Awesome Hyper Dimensional Mega Team have released a launch trailer for their new title Rise and Shine. Adult Swim Games have been known to release little quirky games, Rise and Shine looks like it’s keeping that theme in a side scrolling puzzle type shooter. Check the trailer below.

As you can probably tell right from the start Adult Swim Games don’t take themselves too seriously and this comes across in the light hearted trailer. Usually in situations like this you will see a launch trailer and then forget about until something triggers your memory when it’s released months down the line, well not in the case of Rise and Shine because it is out tomorrow. Yes that’s right you have to wait hours for it. Rise and Shine will be available on Xbox on the 13th of January 2017, lets hope that day being a Friday doesn’t put an omen on what looks to be a fun and hilarious title.

Keep your eyes peeled on TiX for a full review of Rise and Shine coming soon.
