Publisher The Arcade Crew (The Last Spell, Young Souls) and developer Berzerk Studio (Just Shapes & Beats) today announce Infernax, a demon-slaying action adventure inspired by 8-bit retro classics, which is bashing monsters into a spectacularly bloody pulp across PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in Q1 2022.
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.
Alcedor gains experience and gold vital for obtaining powerups as he slaughters foes, leveling up stats and earning new skills and weapons to help paint the screen red with blocky splatters of blood. Morality-testing decisions made during his quest prompt consequences later in the adventure and influence which of the game’s multiple endings players witness. Infernax’s open world-style design is packed with secrets awaiting discovery by its most kickass players, offering a satisfying reward for those skilled enough to endure a brutal challenge.
