Ultra-violent retro shooter Hellbound goresplodes onto Kickstarter

Fans of blood-misted adolescent nostalgia, derivative logos, and improbably proportioned protagonists, this one’s for you. Inspired by classic carnage games like Doom, Quake, and Duke Nukem 3D, Hellbound is a “90s first-person shooter, made 20 years later”, and it’s out now on Kickstarter.

Argentinian indie developer Saibot Studios is looking for $40,000 fund-munnies, with over $2300 already in the pledge-bank at publish time and 29 days left on the clock, and the game’s funding campaign launched next to a free demo on Steam, featuring a beta version of Hellbound’s wave-based Survival Mode.

It’s appropriately ridiculous enough, but as always, remember that even the most must-have Kickstarter projects remain subject to the boner-killing laws of reality. According to the blurb, that $40,000 target is intended to “finish the Survival Mode version with new enemies and items” and “design one first level of the Single Player Campaign, and then try to convince investors to complete the funds for the entire campaign”, so…

One level?
