Publisher HOOK and Swedish indie developer Overflow today released their fast-paced rogue-lite shooter, Madshot, in Early Access on Steam. In the 2D acrobatic adrenaline-fueled shooter players take on horrific monsters and even the mighty Cthulhu.
In the search for eternal life, one dabbled in the occult and summoned powerful forces beyond their control and understanding. These forces should never be uttered, yet now the mighty Cthulhu has appeared and swallowed the player’s city whole.
However odd the situation, players have a chance to destroy Cthulhu from within. In this procedurally generated world there are over 50 eldritch monsters and bosses to encounter. A variety of weapons and more than 300 upgrades are available to fit one’s gameplay style.
Each playthrough offers new challenges in the ever-changing gameplay experience. Experimentation is rewarded with unique upgrade and weapon unlocks. Objects in the environment can be used to get the upper hand as one fights against the legions of horrifying creatures and multi-phased boss battles. The final version of the game will feature challenges, rewards, unlocks, and more surprises.
Madshot is available in Early Access for Windows PC from Steam for $19.99/€19.99/£17.99. A 20% Early Access release discount runs until June 16, 2022. Follow @MadshotTheGame on Twitter for more information.
