There’s an upcoming retro shooter in the works from Acid Man Games called Quarantined; Viscerafest that hearkens back to the days of Blake Stone, Quake and Chex Quest, where you moved through corridors fast and furiously while gunning down everything in your path.
The game utilizes rapid-speed gameplay mechanics to keep the action flowing fast and furiously. Much like the classic shooters from the 1990s, Quanrantined: Viscerafest will take place over the course of three fully fleshed out campaign episodes. The developer has managed to complete the first two episodes and is currently getting ready to work on the third episode, which he expects to be finished by around spring of 2019.
You can check out the gameplay trailer below, featuring some of the bunny-hopping shootouts and lightning-quick gunplay.
The theme behind the game is progressing through non-linear levels, designed almost like the classic DOOM maps of old, with lots of secrets, plenty of hidden areas, and a lot of different weapons and enemies to uncover.
There will be around five levels for each of the episodes, and your objective will be to hunt down and kill the evil warlock Cromune and his cronies as he attempts to meld together realms. Just like the classic games, you’ll have to rely on your wits and reflexes to progress through each level while avoiding taking damage and killing the minions and bosses along the way.
The action will be fueled by a rocking, heavy metal soundtrack provided by Markie Music. You can check out the theme song below or hit up Markie’s Bandcamp page to listen to more tunes.
Quarantined: Viscerafest is still far from being finished but, Acid Man Games is making decent progress for it to be indie project.
If you’re interested in playing the game you can grab the first episode right now by downloading it from the GameJolt page. It’s only a 244MB download, so you won’t need to spare a lot of room for the retro-shooter.
