Slayer Shock will release on September 29!
Slayer Shock is coming to Steam!
Description
Release date: Q4 2016
From David Pittman (Eldritch, NEON STRUCT) and Minor Key Games (Super Win the Game, Gunmetal Arcadia), Slayer Shock is a role-playing shooter about hunting vampires in Nebraska.

Operating from your headquarters at a college coffee shop, you take missions to patrol the streets, rescue captive humans, and weaken the undead threat. A team of fellow vampire slayers assists you from HQ, providing new weapons, skills, and research.

With a format that lovingly recalls scripted television (missions are "episodes", each campaign is a "season"), Slayer Shock blends immersive first-person action, lightweight strategy, and procedural narrative into a uniquely thrilling experience.

Assemble a team, hunt the vampires, and save your hometown!

I'm an HR Manager of the group doing the translation. I propose to translate your game to Russian language in a short time and low price. Write on e-mail mannegreim0@gmail.com or in PM

There's a devlog on TIGForums, but I've been doing a poor job of keeping it updated. The best place to follow developments is the Twitter account ( https://twitter.com/SlayerShockGame ). There's some big news coming this week, so follow there or sign up for the Minor Key Games mailing list to be sure you don't miss it: http://minorkeygames.us7.list-manage2.com/subscribe?u=7ad816225093f9be327ac5cce&id=895a06ba78

Is there a development blog or a place I can see videos showing how the game's work is coming along?

Neon Struct quickly became an all time favorite of mine and eldritch was amazing, it seems like every concept / mechanic you implent are ones i have specifically been starving for. I'm excited for whatever work you got for us, and thanks for doing the free expansions as well!

I'm not asking the devs to change the core concept of the game - it is solid as it is. However, I think that it might be cool if they added some occasional variety in threats to spice things up, just like in the shows that inspired it. This could be as small as having an odd side mission involving dealing with the new threat, or have its own developed storyline with assosicated missions, research, unique enemies, and procedurally generated big bad! Again, I am well aware that this may not be in line with the developer's intent, and (as someone who has dabbled in game design in the past) I know it would take a lot of work to implement these things. I just think the variety would be a nice touch. If nothing else, it would be good expansion pack material. I'd buy it, without a doubt.

This game looks likes it's going to be a ton of fun. I loved Eldritch, and the idea of a game inspired by "monster of the week" shows with the same gameplay makes me excited. The procedural generation elements in both the story and gameplay have the potential to be unlike anything we've seen before.
That being said, I feel like posing a question - why just vampires? Now, I do realize that the premise is "hunting vampires in Nebraska", and that it is heavily inspired by "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". However, and correct me if I'm wrong, I don't think all of the threats on that show were vampires. What I'm saying is that maybe the devs should try to incorporate some other enemy types into the game to add to variety. Aliens, zombies, ghosts, werewolves, magic users, mutants, demons, shapshifters, sinister corporations, and even some of the Cthulhu Mythos elements from Eldritch - the possibilities are endless.

I hope there's furniture and decorations in houses and buildings. The buildings look a bit bland right now.

This looks like what "The Bureau" was originally intended to be like. Any chance of taking a squad with you in missions that you can issue commands to, or too stealthy? Either way, it looks absolutely brilliant!

The Buffy inspirations are lovely.

Fuck yeah. Loved Eldritch.
