Down to Hell, a heavy metal 2D slasher, hits Steam Early Access with first of five episodes

Get a taste of Hell with Red Dev Studio’s Down to Hell, an episodic 2D take on action games such as Devil May Cry. The first of five episodes has currently been released into Steam Early Access with each episode planned on being released every 2-3 months.

Down To Hell is best described as a 2D answer to combo and style based gameplay of dynamic slasher games such as Devil May Cry, with deep fighting system, rising levels of challenge and battles with larger-than-life bosses which test player’s skills to maximum. This approach is spiced up with selected elements of beat’em up, Soulslike and Metroidvania genres, to provide a diverse gameplay experience. But the game wouldn’t be as much fun and eye-candy without grim, but evocative art style inspired by covers of metal albums, the darkest of dark fantasy and classic references such as legendary manga Berserk. The dark atmosphere is punctuated by a truly metal soundtrack. Decapitated and KORONAL are onboard to illustrate adrenaline-fueled boss encounters with their music – with more renown metal bands joining the score soon.

The first episode will contain up to four hours of gameplay and four bosses, while the next episode will bring in new environments, music, enemies, and additions to the combat system.

Down to Hell’s first episode is now available via Steam Early Access for $9.99 with a temporary 10% discount. The second episode will be released this Summer. For more information, visit the game’s Steam page.
