Hellbound was one of Netflix’s most successful Korean originals back in 2021. There is complete silence for a whole year. There was silence and no News for a whole years. People assumed the demise of this show. I can’t blame them because everybody has doubts about Netflix’s reliability these days.
Hellbound is making waves at Netflix right now because of its fascinating lore. This Korean dark fantasy is making waves on social media right now. South Korea’s entertainment industry is becoming more mainstream than ever. Do you hate reading subtitles? Hellbound is available for the dub in multiple languages. People who love subs are more vocal online but people who watch dub are a silent majority. Hellbound is directed by the man behind Train to Busan .
Hellbound is now out on Steam, from developer Saibot Studios (the reference in that name is intentional). Consider it an intentional throwback to the rough and raw early days of first-person shooters like Doom and Quake.
Back when the first person shooter was a young genre, there was only one rule: if it moves, shoot it. That basic approach was what made 90s shooters like Doom and Quake such mindless fun, and the spiritual successor Hellbound, from the devoted Doom fans at Saibot Studios, is ready to take the mantle.
