Steam continues to get a wide array of titles from all sorts of indie developers, and later this year, a new fast-paced lore-filled bullet shooter called “Beyond The Veil” will arrive, and it’s set to be quite the adventure.
It comes to us from Incubator Creations, and they’re bringing a world where the gods are dead, and you have to figure out not just where you fit into the “new world” that you’re in, but what happened to the gods above.
“My first goal when developing Beyond the Veil was to create a project that goes beyond a classic top-down shooter and add a game with fresh mechanics and incredible lore,” said Sam West, Founder of Incubator Creations. “The finished product became a well-rounded blend of bullet shooter, RPG, and mysterious mythological existentialism that makes for an immersive narrative I know all fans will appreciate.”
Here are some things that you can expect from Beyond The Veil:
- A Rich Story – Explore the narrative of Beyond the Veil, uncover what happened to the gods, and why you are here. Find others in the wasteland to help you, and listen to their stories.
- Procedural Maps – Discover the secrets of the five kingdoms of the gods. Procedural maps make each playthrough unique, presenting different advantages and challenges as you explore. From rain and fog to lightning storms and hurricanes, the dynamic weather system can upset even the best-made plans.
- RPG Mechanics – Develop characters as you see fit. Take on trials to increase their stats or give them powerful passive abilities. Equip a plethora of different weapons, accessories, and inscriptions to give you an edge in combat.
- Top Down Combat – Fight hordes of enemies in real-time, bloody combat. Use weapons, skills, and the environment to your advantage to survive. Movement and awareness are key to survival, but fleeing is always an option when things get too tough.
