The kickstarter campaign for Cradle Games’ Souls in space RPG, Hellpoint has entered its final week, and it’s going to be close as they head towards their final push. To drive up some awareness, the studio is streaming the game from their Twitch Channel this Saturday at 8PM EST, where they’ll be playing through the game and giving folks a chance to meet the dev team.
We recently put together a preview of our hands on time with the game and felt that it had good potential, so much so to merit a backing. The controls and combat were very fluid for a game so early in development and the horror vibe was unlike anything the Soulsborne series had ever touched, and had jump scares that remind us of Dead Space. The interesting orbit cycle in which areas and events unlock depending on the time of day as well as the way the world changes when you die has a lot of potential to make playthroughs unique and memorable. Check out the full preview vid:
Don’t just take it from us, you can download the demo on Steam and try it out yourself. If you dig it’s promise as we did, you can head to their Kickstarter to help get it going, they have some pretty reasonable backer tiers. There’s nothing wrong with more Souls in our lives now is there?
