Soldat dev’s Butcher adds easy mode, only if you want

Soldat studio Transhuman Design advertised their new run ‘n’ gun platformer Butcher [official site] with the tagline “The easiest mode is ‘HARD’!” It’s pretty hard, y’see. But if you fancy shotguns and saw traps and squishing machines and helicopters and hordes of enemies without bashing your face into a difficulty wall, you can now download a free DLC pack which adds a ‘Casual’ mode.

Butcher: Ultraviolent Prototype From Makers Of Soldat

I can think of lots of reasons why shotgunning your way through some 2D pixels might turn your day around, but whatever the cause I recommend Butcher. It’s a three-level prototype of an ultraviolent run-and-gun platformer from the makers of Soldat and King Arthur’s Gold. You can play it in your browser now and it is distracting me from the neighbours drilling, sawing, sanding and hammering their way through their walls and my patience.
