Metal-Inspired Slasher “Down to Hell” Launches April 18

Red Dev Studio S.A. has announced the release date for Down to Hell.

The side-scrolling hack ‘n slash launch for Windows PC and Mac OS on April 18th, via Steam Early Access. You can check out a trailer above.

Down to Hell is a Metal-infused hack ‘n slash Metroidvania about a lone swordsmen facing off against the legions of Hell. The game is episodic, and the developer hopes to deliver all five episodes before the end of 2019.

The game will initially be $9.99, but the price will increase upon leaving Early Access.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

The player takes on the role of a knight filled with hatred and struggle. During the game the protagonist will have to fight with various demons in order to save the mysterious girl that previously saved him.

Down to Hell is a dynamic slasher with a dark and gritty art style. During the gameplay the player using both weapons and magic will have to fight various terrifying demons.
Moreover, in each chapter, there will be at least 3 bosses, where each of them will be a particularly demanding opponent.

Both in the game and especially in the soundtrack, there won’t be any compromises. The soundtrack will be fully metal in crucial moments (incl. Decapitated, KORONAL and more!), the art style also will be heavily inspired by some great metal covers.

  • 5 types of different weapons

  • Heave F’N Metal Soundtrack! (Decapitated, KORONAL and more!)
  • Almost 20 bosses to kill!
  • 4 different endings
