Slayer Shock Is Basically Buffy: The Game

Slayage, Buffy style

Ever wanted to play through your own lo-fi vision of Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Slayer Shock [official site] is the brainchild of David Pittman, creator of both Eldritch and Neon Struct, and the FPS-RPG finally launched this week to bring slayage to the masses.

When annoying undead dudes hustle you at a coffee shop you have to throw back that PSL in a hurry (it is time for pumpkin spice, after all) and take missions to push them back. Oh, and you get to rescue humans too. Basically, it's your job to kill off these obnoxious creatures so you can get back to sipping coffee and (probably) writing your novel. Because they always, always come at the worst possible time.

What sticks out to me are the "episodes" the game's meant to take place across, with special seasons to explore throughout a procedural narrative, which seem reminiscent of '90s TV. Good, comfortable familiarity. Sounds better than Buffy already, actually. Sign me up.

Pick up Slayer Shock on Steam now for £14.99/17,99€/$19.99. It's on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Alec's been playing Slayer Shock and will tell us all Wot He Thinks soon.
