Niche Spotlight – Hell Pie

Hell Pie

Today’s Niche Spotlight is Hell Pie, a colorful and crude 3D platformer by Sluggerfly and Headup.

In Hell Pie, players control Nate, a demon tasked with traveling to the filthiest and most degenerate corners of the overworld to gather ingredients for Satan’s infamous birthday cake.

Players will be accompanied by Nate’s pet angel Nugget, who can be swung around as a weapon or grappling hook. Meet a cast of repugnant characters, explore obscene environments, and unlock an arsenal of devilish abilities to help you navigate each level.

You can find a launch trailer below.

Hell Pie is available on Windows PC (via the Epic Games Store, GOG, and Steam), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series XIS for $24.99. A Nintendo Switch version is coming soon.

You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:

Hell Pie is an obscene 3D platformer that takes bad taste to the next level! The game sees you grab the horns of Nate, the ‘Demon of Bad Taste’. He is given the honorable task of gathering the disgusting ingredients for Satan’s infamous birthday pie. To do so, Nate must venture out into the overworld and do whatever it takes to ensure those ingredients are secured in time, or there’ll be hell to pay!

Luckily Nate isn’t alone on this quest, his ‘pet’ angel Nugget is there to offer support. Nugget offers his holy insight when needed, but more importantly is chained to Nate, so can be used like a grappling hook or swung around as a weapon. Nate can also equip horns he finds across the world to give him new hellish abilities.

Together Nate and Nugget will explore insane environments, meet tons of repugnant characters and witness some truly shocking sights. Hell Pie is a seriously twisted take on the classic mascot platformer, come along for the ride if you think you can stomach it!

FEATURES

  • Become a demon: You’re Nate, demon of bad taste, the 8th deadly sin. While not taken very seriously in hell, he is feared on earth (by some…a few…2-3 people at least).
  • Heavenly support: Nugget the angel does not only look cute, he’s also useful. Throw him like a grappling hook, use him as a weapon and let him be your guide.
  • Freedom: Use the extensive moveset to overcome obstacles the way you want.
  • Filth: It might look cute, but there are violent characters, illicit drugs and sodomy.
  • Stuff: Collect things! Lots of things!
  • Hell and above: Explore 4 big worlds and survive challenging platforming levels.
  • Fashion: Buy outfits. You’re the demon of bad taste and should look the part.
  • Random bullet point: Did you know? Necrophiliac ducks exist.
