Default Amid Evil (FPS)

Anyone not know about this game? I followed it on Steam a year or so ago and have enjoyed reading all the updates... needless to day I got sucked into the hype and bought it today. It's to be released from Early Access tomorrrow.

All the Early Access players are raving about it and the GIFs look really cool.

Noticed there isn't a thread about it so I made one. I plan on putting significant time into it tonight.

After playing for about an hour, I have determined that you guys should seriously consider getting this game.

Superb level design and creative weapons. It's easy to tell this was inspired by Heretic... They did a great job.

Agreed. I've played other retro shooters that seemed to capitalize (?) on retro graphics but the gameplay was boring and repetitive or ridiculously difficult.

Amid Evil manages to capture my curiosity as I move around each level. Each level is significantly different from each other and I think that's what's been missing from most other games.

Looks like a lot of fun, just wish it was co-op multiplayer. I had some great days playing Hexen/Heretic all the way through with some buddies.

Finished. The Void (last episode) was much more difficult than the other episodes. I thought The Forges had the most difficult enemies until I got to the Void levels. FFS they had one enemy that if they hit you with their projectile, you would teleport to them and get mauled. Only 70% health or above would be capable of escaping, but even then it's better to reload. Quickloading takes about 1.2 seconds.

Overall, Amid Evil is mostly badass.
