The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild and developer Really Ragdoll Studios released the largest update yet for their retro FPS title KUR. Currently available in early access, the love letter to early 90’s FPS games has received a steady stream of updates since its reveal at Realms Deep 2021 showcase.
Community feedback has been key with updates and ongoing development. In this largest update yet for KUR the developer is introducing a new cash rewards system. After all when one plays a mercenary for hire cash is king. As players make bank they can upgrade at the end of every single level.
To let players flex their amazing kill skills new leaderboards are being introduced. Not all skill is measured in points only. Now players can brag about who holds the biggest bag or who is the fastest player to complete the final new challenge in the Factory.
New playable content in the form of a new challenging intro level and rework encounters in the campaign is available. Hammerhead ragdoll corpse physics are now in game and a new blood flavor, plasma blood can also be seen in game. The developer also teased more changes in the patch, but those are being left for players to discover.
For those unfamiliar with KUR, the game has a retro 1990’s FPS look and feel. There are more than 20 levels full of secrets, boss fights, and hideous enemies. Rogue robots covered in human flesh is nothing to sneeze at. The human colony on Mars is being massacred and The Corporation has hired mercenaries to cleanup the mess and save the day. However this isn’t the standard bail out the company mission and those who survive will more than likely demand hazard pay.
KUR is available in early access on Windows PC through Steam for $19.99 USD. For more information about KUR visit the game’s Steam page or the developer’s website.
