Spellrazor Greenlight
Description
Release date: Early 2016
Spellrazor is an '80s retro-style, glitchy, neon-tinged arcade-adventure-shooter in the style of Rogue, Defender, Robotron and Berserk. It is a love-letter to the early, sinister work of Williams and Eugene Jarvis... and a ghost story.

Enter the Electric Dungeon, destroy enemies using the 27 spells at your disposal and dive to the next level. Hack and glitch the game to find out what happened to the original author before he disappeared back in 1981. Not all is as it appears.

FEATURES:
- 27 unique spells using 27 different buttons! (Keys "A" to "Z" plus "Space")
- Three different game modes
- A unique form of 'bullet time' allowing tactical thinking in the midst of the chaos
- A creepy meta-story told through the hackable in-game console
- Secrets, mysteries and rituals


GAMEPLAY
Spellrazor is played in realtime using the cursors and all 26 letter keys, as well as space.
In order to make this strange array of weapons usable, the game goes into 'slowmo' mode when a threat is detected. This gives you valuable breathing room to choose the appropriate key/spell, dodge, or flee.

Alternatively, you can play in 'Insane' mode which leaves the experience 100% realtime.

THE CONSOLE
Spellrazor comes with its own debug console. This is the means by which you can hack the game, and also learn a little more about the game's original author, Duncan Bower, who went missing in the early '80s.

The console allows you to buy and sell spells, cheat and 'fix' other elements of the game.
It's also full of secrets.

"The thing I love is the fact that it gives me nausea and headaches, the symptoms the person in the game had, and it makes me feel like I am actually in the game!" There's a reason for this...

Love the game, I've played it for about a half hour. The only thing I don't really like about it is that the audio is way too loud and makes Let's Plays way too challenging. The thing I love is the fact that it gives me nausea and headaches, the symptoms the person in the game had, and it makes me feel like I am actually in the game!

This looks a lot like Cogmind, which is great! I would definitely love to play this

Thanks so much, folks. It was really fun making it... bar the bit where I started looking into the occult stuff which got quite unnerving at one point.

This game is Awesome, wicked back story to the development and the game is so interestingly delivered, this is a drug in data form.

Like this a lot. I fired the game up last night and lost a couple of hours to it before I even realised I'd properly started playing. I'm a big fan of Löve too so it was great to be able to have a poke around under the hood :)
