Homicidal All-Stars – A Game Show with a Twist!

Written by Spitfire Spud

Good Shepherd Entertainment and developer Artificer have revealed Homicidal All-Stars, a single-player, turn-based strategy game set in a dystopian future where citizens and convicts alike compete to survive on a brutal reality game show.

This deep tactical experience featuring unique heroes and villains in an over-the-top bloodsport of guts and gore will launch on PC via Steam and GOG.com later this year.

Homicidal All-Stars is a hugely popular sensation for a future society torn apart by extreme income inequality, rapacious corporations, climate change, civil unrest and war. As a contestant, you must survive deadly urban arenas packed with lethal traps, confounding puzzles, and heavily armed killers. Defeat your enemies, become a star, and you could win it all!

Every episode of Homicidal All-Stars delivers a hellish new obstacle course with a distinct theme and challenges. Evade and disarm traps, overcome ambushes, explore for helpful sponsorship packages, and be on guard for especially nasty surprises from the show’s director.

When the mayhem is over, you’ll head backstage to rest and recuperate: record a confessional, chat with your fellow challengers and the show’s crew, then level up and customize your loadout for the next night of lethal dangers for the audience’s amusement.
