Gorescript takes place in a pixel universe dominated by relentless monsters out to erase you from existance. The game is a throwback to all the shooters in the early days of the genre. Gorescript is a fast paced first person shooter game built in a homemade game engine by a single person. Inspired by the great old ones, Gorescript puts a pixel gun in your hand and lets you loose into 18 crazy levels guarded by blocky horrors. Gorescript cranks up its ridiculous difficulty up to 11 with the masochist and blackout game modes. You’ll be able to face hordes of enemies and even explore the game in darkness, your only source of light being your weapon firing (hoping you’ll hit something).
