Amid Evil fantastically casts itself out of early access

I've had a rollicking good time with Amid Evil over its year-and-a-bit in early access, so I'm glad to say that the final version is out now and every bit as good as I'd hoped. Developed by Indefatigable, a small team of former Doom modders, it's a high fantasy '90s style FPS heavily inspired by Doom cousin Heretic, but has a few big ideas of…

Amid Evil launches out of the cosmic void on June 20th

Old-school fantasy FPS Amid Evil finally has a release date after a year and change in early access. Indefatigable's Heretic-inspired shooter impressed me when it made its debut, and has only improved with each update. Current players have access to six different episodes, each with a unique look and monster-set for their handful of levels. As of June 20th, the seventh and final episode --…

We reported on the announcement of pointedly retro FPS Amid Evil a few weeks ago. This week, publisher New Blood Interactive let me play an early preview demo and, after a couple runs through the handful of levels included, I'm eager to share my thoughts on the game thus far. You can also watch a generous helping of gameplay footage below.

Amid Evil aims to be a spiritual successor to Heretic

As the years pass, we find ourselves wiser every day, sliding ever-closer to absolute truth. Given the time to reflect, and perspective to offer clarity, surely we can all finally agree on one thing: Heretic was a way better fantasy FPS than Hexen. Doom modders turned indies Indefatigable clearly agree, because their debut game, Amid Evil, looks very much like Raven's 1994 fantasy FPS, albeit with…
