Blackpowder Games, an indie developer made up of former Monolith devs (FEAR, Condemned), has confirmed that its next project, the eerie, atmospheric shooter Betrayer is complete and will be transitioning out of Steam Early Access on March 24th. When the game releases, its price will go up to $19.99, so if you’re interested in it — maybe our playthrough piqued your interest — Betrayer will remain at $14.99 until then.
“Since shipping FEAR almost 10 years ago, we’ve been wanting to create a player-driven game that emphasizes exploration and discovery with minimal hand-holding,” says Craig Hubbard, designer and writer on Betrayer. “We’re ecstatic to finally get the chance.”
“Ultimately, what we’re proudest of is that Betrayer is distinctive. When you’re setting out to create a first person action game with seven people, the biggest fear is that you’ll make something redundant: a cheap version of a bigger, better title. But I feel confident saying you haven’t played anything quite like this.”
Betrayer is available on Steam Early Access (not for much longer), you can get it here.
