Today I am pleased to announce a brand new RPG/Roguelike hybrid game available for all platforms - Hell and Back!
When a mad scientist opens a portal to hell on Mars Base, it's up to a lowly security guard (you) to descend down into the shores of hell, close the portal, and save humanity! Simple enough, right?
Hell and Back was coded using an upgraded and improved version of the roguelike RPG engine that I developed for the game Gone Rogue. Improvements have been made in NPC quest generation, battle mechanics, game saving, lighting engine, item enchanting, dialog generation, and more. There are even new classes of in-world objects that the player can interact with, adding yet another dimension to this already feature-packed roguelike engine! In addition, unlike Gone Rogue, Hell and Back also has a story and associated lore, which is revealed to the player as you progress throughout the levels of the game.
You start out as a normal security guard on Mars Base when the power suddenly goes out. The next thing you know, the base is crawling with zombies! As you fight to survive in the base, you will descend down into the lower levels of the base where you will learn what happened to the crew. You will end up fighting your way through the deadly caverns under the base, before arriving on the very shores of hell itself. Finally, if you can survive all of that, you will end up in Hell Keep, Satan's personal fortress, and if you are lucky, you will defeat Satan himself and bring his decapitated head back to Mars Base as a trophy for your mantle!
Hell and Back is available now for free on most platforms, including Android, iOS, and Windows. You can find download links below, and also be sure to check out the official Hell and Back website for more news and info:
