Tired of shooters that make you reload, aim down the sights, and hide behind boxes like a spineless coward? Reliant on heartbeat detectors, regenerating health and killstreaks? Feel like something is missing from your life, shortly before a 13 year old with a headset ends it amid a hail of slurs and profanity?

Well, get ready for a blast from the past.

BLOODCRUSHER II: KILLFIRE, sequel to the hit 1992 shooter phenomenon BLOODCRUSHER 3D, promises the most incredible action you can handle. BLOODCRUSHER II: A COMING OF AGE STORY randomly crafts stories, levels, enemies and weapons, forcing players to use both skill and caution to proceed. Build up your KILLOMETER on a global scoreboard and fill your BLOOD GAUGE for mega-maximum carnage!

With Liefeld inspired art design, Quake inspired gameplay and violence so controversial it was subject to a Congressional hearing, BLOODCRUSHER II: EXPLODE ALL HEADS EDITION will sate all your repressed murderous urges!

BLOODCRUSHER II: THE SPINEBREAKER FILES, the mega-hit of the 1997 season, is now coming to your personal computer by direct download or a 75 floppy disc set.

FEATURES
  • Dynamic level generation built on the cutting edge NERV Engine! Secret rooms, locked doors, minibosses and arenas!
  • Tens of thousands of randomly generated weapons across nine weapon categories. Guns that shoot ninja stars, angry bees, syringes, railway spikes and more!
  • Retro low-poly 3d graphics inspired by the best of 1990s shooters, and character designs inspired by the worst of 1990s comic books!
  • Physics-driven projectile-based shooting action! Lead your target and arc your shots!
  • Fast paced shooter gameplay styled after classic shooters. Rocket jump and circle-strafe your way to victory!
  • Probably more blood and gore than is entirely reasonable!
  • A global scoreboard for both points and global kills.
  • Intense original soundtrack by Dread Cell.

Hello there!

My name is Beau “Protroid” LaManna, and I am one of the devs for Bloodcrusher II: WITTY SUBTITLE. You may have noticed that it has been a little while since we updated here, and I hope to explain both that and what projects that we have been working on in the meantime.

To start on that first bit, we’re sorry that the past few months haven’t been filled with blood exploding updates and progress reports. Instead, our development team has decided to explore more aspects of Bloodcrusher II that we were unsure of how to handle, most specifically being the prospect of online play and miscellaneous netcode. That provides an excellent transition into our side project, Freefall Arena.

Ooh?
In space, no one can hear you careen into an asteroid. Be happy for that.

Freefall Arena is the perfect way for us to run and conduct tests of the online infrastructure that will be present in Bloodcrusher II. Specifically, it'll let us investigate both multiplayer stuff and icky marketing and distribution without having to muck around with BCII and potentially screw it up. I won’t bother talking about the gameplay of it too much here, as Freefall Arena now has its own page on Indiedb!

The other projects we have been working on fall into the realms of Tabletop Gaming. Derek “open_sketchbook” Chappell, occasionally assisted by yours truly, has been putting his creative mind to work building more experiences for players to try, both in the form of his two short Terminator based RPGs, and in the form of Must be Tuesday, Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s weird half cousin.


Aliens, Vampires, and Robots, oh my!

You can find links to all three of his creations here, as well as in depth descriptions of the game playand finer points of each.

That really brings this post to a close. I would like to thank everyone for their patience, and hopefully we can see both Bloodcrusher II and Freefall Arena in the 2014 Indie of the Year Awards (Hey! A dev can dream!)

If you want to hear more from us, follow us on Twitter; @open_sketchbook, @protroid, and @r3ven. If you don’t want to hear more from us, hey its a free universe (unless you live in Detroit, which is governed by a deity known only as Robocop).

Crush on guys!

In Bloodcrusher II, it is very important to hit things. What things you use to hit these things is entirely up to you!

The future isn't so bad I guess. After all, it seems to be more than happy to be supplying the past with guns. How nice is that!

I believe it is high time for us to talk about
the future of BLOODCRUSHER II. Are you planning
to release the game within the present decade?

We hope to return to BLOODCRUSHER II: KNIFE IN THE STABDOMIN, as soon as possible. Right now we are focusing on a smaller project in order to ensure we can treat BLOODCRUSHER II: CONSECUTIVE NORMAL BULLETS, with the respect that it deserves.

Dear Contraption studios.
As you know, Bloodcrusher 3D is nowhere to be found, neither on floppy disks, nor the Internet. Are you going to re-release it so we can enjoy the hit from 1992?

That depends if we can dig up some old files. Back in those days Computers ran on coal, and saving a file was a process I'd rather not go into detail on.

RT @schezar: It's like someone heard of photoshop layers, and also heard of humans. Then they tried to recreate both from that rumor. That's the GiMP.

There is something incredible in Stellaris about conquering an empire, then engineering them to conform to your ethics. So messed up.
