Top-down shoot-o-brawler Redeemer spurts out

Hello there! Welcome to Wednesday morning on Rock, Paper, Shotgun, and with the time just coming up to murder o’clock we’re looking at Redeemer [official site]. Released last night, it’s a top-down shoot-o-brawler where you can blast fools’in the face or even stealth-kill them, but that seems a waste when you can also rip off their arm and use it to beat other baddies to death. It’s that sort of video game. Observe:

Yup, it’s a top down bash-a-masher with dashes of Hotline Miami, a smidgen of Sleeping Dogs in the contextual environmental kills (lots of fans and blades in this monastery), and uh, like, loads of blood. Hammer people! Shoot them! Punch them! Parry them! Kick their spines in! Feed their heads into blades! Murder! Murder! Murder!

It does look like it could be a lark.

Oh! I almost forgot the all-important story: blah blah story blah blah megacorp wants you blah blah cyborgs blah blah retreat to become a monk blah blah oh no it’s murder o’clock blah blah redemption??? And that’s the name of the game.

Redeemer is out on Windows through Steam for £9.34/12,74€/$12.74, which includes the 15% launch discount available until the 8th.
