Infernal Radiation, a hardcore gothic/dark-fantasy arcade game, will debut on PC by entering Steam Early Access on August 10th. The main protagonist is an exorcist battling infernal possessions and demons. The new release from the Polish Asmodev studio combines dynamic gameplay, fights with demonic bosses and a high level of difficulty. Infernal Radiation will also appear on Nintendo Switch.
Infernal Radiation is a project developed by Asmodev, a Polish studio currently also working on Priest Simulator. The PC version will be published by Art Games Studio S.A. and Ultimate Games S.A.
Asmodev's game is a unique title set in a world combining gothic and dark fantasy elements, full of horror and black humour. The creators have also focused on a unique audio-visual style.
In Infernal Radiation, the player steps into the shoes of an unyielding exorcist. The main protagonist finds himself on Halloween Island, a place struck by tragedy – an explosion of a power plant that produced energy from hellfire. As a result of this unfortunate incident, many people have been exposed to infernal radiation, leading to numerous possessions around the island.
“Infernal Radiation is an arcade title with a strong macabre atmosphere. We have based the boss fights, and there will be more than 20 of them, on primitive mechanics. The rules are simple, but hard to follow. Just like in life. Completing the game on all difficulty levels should give you a thrill of perverse satisfaction” – says Mim, one of the game’s creators.
For now, the title will be available in Early Access. This phase will last approximately 4 months. As the developers explain, the main elements and the main storyline are ready, but the game will get some fixes and improvements.
“During these few months in Early Access, the Asmodev team will, among others, improve the balance of the game, expand the ending, additionally diversify the graphic design, prepare a set of achievements, refine the sound of the game and introduce some changes to the interface. The final game should be ready at the end of 2020” – explains Rafał Jelonek, COO at Ultimate Games S.A.
