Give the world one last middle finger while skirting between life and death, using the corruption of the cultists as a weapon against them! Fight corrupted monsters across multiple trials and destroy the cult once and for all.

In this fast-paced first-person movement shooter your health is a catalyst for your power. The lower your health, the faster and stronger you become, including your perfectly crafted Cerebral Blaster. However, your health is constantly regenerating and so to maintain your power you must ride the fine line of living near death. Set in an underground abandoned 3D city, annihilate the 2D horrors that were once human cultists, who have turned into corrupted monstrosities that have fallen victim to an unknowable cosmic horror.

  • Decrease your health as a way to weaponize your movement and enhance your cerebral blaster.
  • Destroy the cultist monsters that have corrupted the city!
  • Wall run, slide, and parkour your way through the concrete jungle!
  • Piece together the narrative through each trial and discover what happened to the occupants of the city.

nice shooter

8.5/10 Not enough generators

This game is fun as hell. Got some really interesting and unique mechanics going for it and a great aesthetic to go with it! Always nice to see a game that encourages you to take damage.
