Extreme Exorcism creeps onto consoles and PC in 2015
If you’ve ever felt an eerie presence in an empty room or heard spine-chilling footsteps in the dead of night, then you may find comfort in the knowledge that you are not alone. Or not, depending on what it is that is sharing the room with you.
Today Indie developers Golden Ruby Games and Ripstone Publishing have teamed up. It didn’t take the two long to report that they have discovered undeniable evidence of a supernatural force at work on this year’s All Hallow’s Eve. As a result, they are teaming up to bring a paranormal platformer by the name of Extreme Exorcism to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2015.
In the upcoming game you will take on the role of extreme exorcist Mae Barrons. She is typically called upon when everything and everybody else have failed to rid a haunted house of its ghostly presence. Utilizing rather unconventional supernatural skills, she takes on the ghosts that others failed to defeat.
Mae, unlike the typical exorcist, won’t utilize a cross, holy water, or Bible. Her approach is a bit more destructive. She’ll utilize swords, guns, grenades, mines, rocket launchers, razor-sharp boomerangs, lightning spells, Kung-Fu, and much more to destroy the ghosts she comes across.
Every time she destroys a ghost, however, a new one will appear to mimic every move you made. So if you wish to survive, you’ll need to tread carefully. Of course, the longer you do survive, the more extreme the game becomes.
Here’s a list of Extreme Exorcism’s features:
* Story mode covers the ten areas of the haunted mansion culminating in a boss fight
* Comprehensive local multiplayer: non-stop ghost annihilation for up to 4 players
* Story mode playable both co-operatively and solo
* Customizable death match mode – change the weapon set, how ghosts spawn and the
abilities they possess
* Online leaderboards allow you to compare your scores with the wider world
* Challenge mode: specific rule setups that encourage extreme play
Mike Christatos, Founder and President of Golden Ruby Games, stated, “The zombies at Golden Ruby Games have risen from the grave, with help from the necromancers at Ripstone, to bring you the thrilling title; Extreme Exorcism. You’ll need serious paranormal powers if you ever hope to beat this devilishly difficult action platformer.”
Of course Ripstone is also looking forward to the partnership. “It’s widely known that at Ripstone we use witchcraft to help great indie games find audiences, so we’re delighted Golden Ruby chose to partner with us on Extreme Exorcism,” added Ripstone’s Creative Director Phil Gaskell. “The game has a spookily good spin on the use of ghost replays, and in competitive multiplayer it’s an absolute
