You awake from cryostasis with memories lost in the confusing fog of hypersleep. Immediately you begin to manifest powerful abilities. Lightning-fast reactions. Innate combat skills. Near-supernatural agility.

Your talents are quickly recognized. A mysterious woman named Yuri offers you a deal. In exchange for getting your memories back, you need to utilise your powers to become a street samurai in the crime-ridden, plague-stricken Sunset City.


Master the combat system based on fast reflexes and vertical awareness. Learn how to deflect bullets using your katana. Outrun your foes using dash/slide. Unlock and apply special abilities in surprising combat scenarios.


Identify threats and choose the best tools to eliminate them. From your trusty katana to a handy energy pistol, shotguns, rifles, and combat augments. All weapons offer an alt-fire mode that adds new tactical options.


Upgrade and develop Lucy to grow more resilient and powerful. Explore large, open, interactive levels full of NPCs you can talk with. Discover the lore organically through dialogue, notes, and computer terminals. Learn who you really are, and uncover Yuri’s real agenda.


Utilize the expansive mod support and make the game your own, for free! Create new levels, design weapons and special attacks, and spice up your gameplay.

…initiating PRELUDE protocol
…adding new episode
…adding synthwave soundtrack

…PREDULE available now!



Our intel shows that Metacorp has upgraded their software with the PRELUDE protocol. This means that Beyond Sunset now starts with a prologue chapter, and Karl Vincent’s spectacular synthwave soundtrack a.k.a. SYNTHTRACK is now available for purchasing.

Episode 0: New Life is an upgraded version of the much-praised demo episode, now with improved mechanics, rebalancing, and some minor quality-of-life changes.

For you, this episode means answers. You can learn what happened before Raven dropped Lucy at that street corner. Before the massacre started. You’ll see where Lucy came from. You’ll understand who she is–at least to a degree. More answers will come later.

Take this opportunity, but beware. If you’re expecting a cakewalk just because this is a prelude, you’re going to be surprised.

And make sure that synthwave sound stays with you at all time.

Stay safe,

Is this game truly developed by GZDoom or just using the engine? The developer is listed as 'GZDoom' and the engine 'Custom'. It is throwing me off.
