Retro Fans Rejoice! Infernax is Coming Soon
This news is for all those old school gamers that wanted to love Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest. Berzerk Studio, along with publisher The Arcade Crew, are collaborating to bring us a bloody good overhaul of that style of game called Infernax. It’s slated to come to PC, Switch, PS4, Xbox One and Series X|S in Q1 of 2022.
Even if you’re not familiar with the fantastic rhythm game Just Shapes & Beats from Berzerk Studio, I can personally attest Infernax is a game to keep an eye on. I had the opportunity to demo it back when conventions were still a regular occurrence. It has all the gritty energy of Castlevania II, but with much more precise controls and ridiculously gory visuals. If you need more information, just read the following:
Infernax follows Alcedor, a famed knight who discovers an unholy magic has spread throughout his land while he was away. Armed with a skull-splitting mace and a trusty shield, Alcedor vows to obliterate the grotesque beasts roaming his home in an epic side-scrolling quest recalling the essence of classically difficult action adventure games.
One really cool element of the game is that you make important moral decisions which have an impact on which ending you get. Combined with a huge open world and tons of secrets to unearth, you have a worthy tribute to the hardcore games that inspired Infernax.
