Butcher is a new DOOM-inspired 2D shooter

Butcher header
The DOOM series is one of the most important franchises of all time as it helped mold the FPS genre into what it is today. DOOM may be the grandfather of FPS games but have you ever imagined how it would play as a 2D shooter? Well now you don’t have to imagine because there is a brand new 2D shooter heavily inspired by DOOM and Quake called Butcher. Butcher retains the retro feel of both DOOM and Quake but somehow ramps up the violence a notch. Here is a quick rundown on some of the features you can look forward to in Butcher,

  • Ultra-violent uncompromising carnage in the spirit of Doom and Quake (chainsaw included)
    Skill-based gameplay mechanics
  • 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
  • Choose from an array of weapons (featuring classics like chainsaw, railgun and the deadly grenade launcher)
  • Adorn more than 20 levels with the insides of your enemies
  • 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!

The game looks to be right up my alley so I am excited that it will be released in the next month or so. For now check out the epic trailer below:
