SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell is the world's only competitive heavy metal first-person platformer. Slice every last millisecond as you race and blast your way through deadly arenas. Teleport, jump, fly, bounce and drop in a hundred merciless and fast paced maps for the ultimate prize: Your soul! And we're happy to say it's coming out this Summer! ;)
A couple new screenshots:
Rest of the post is an old update:
What is this???
Hi! I'm Tom from Pine Studio, an indie game developer from Croatia. At it's core Seum is a speedrunner, you need to finish the level in shortest amount of time. We wanted to make a wild game... And I think we're doing well on that front ;) We're planning on having 66+ levels. Game is inspired by metal music and we're going to have an original Seum soundtrack! It's going to be awesome! Main inspirations for Seum were Quake and Super Meat Boy.
Gamers got to try Seum for the first time at Reboot Infogamer 2015, and it was a blast!
Marty was having a late morning breakfast and minding his own business. Demon knocking on the door wasn't part of his morning routine. Before Marty was able to open them, demon smashed the doors in. Battle ensued and Marty lost his right arm, but the demon lost his head. Unfortunately at the same time more demons got into his garage and stole his last batch of limited edition Walrus Ale™ . Marty was furious. He ripped off the demon's arm and did some DIY to attach it to himself. It wasn't a looker but it casts fireballs! Marty's life now had a single purpose: go to hell and get his beer back!
We've been fortunate to find a really good voice for Marty:
I really like how clean this forum is! Good job itch.io! Fun fact: Seum was originally planned as a small project that would be made in a month and published on itch.io. A Year later... We changed what we want of the project and are making a larger game :)
Our next milestone is a beta build targeted for beginning of 2016. And after that we're running to get game done and ready for the stores :)
