A new legend begins with Early Access later this year; try the demo during Steam Next Fest June!
1C Entertainment announces today that it will be publishing Diluvian Ultra, developed by the talented Swedish team Cresthelm Studios. This single-player retro shooter delivers a sprite-based, hardcore experience in the boots of a brutal Undead Prince. Its new demo kicks off during the Steam Next Fest, starting June 13th, 2022 and Early Access will be available later this year on PC via Steam and other digital platforms.
In Diluvian Ultra you play as Atilla, an undead prince that is awakened in deep space, aboard his tomb-ship by an invasion. Are these intruders the old enemies from your past, or as yet unknown foes to conquer? No matter, they have rooted themselves into the ship and defiled all that is sacred with their foul presence. It is time to drive them out into the void. Awaken prince, and carve a red ruin!
At the core of Diluvian Ultra gameplay are three pillars: Blood, Death, and the dual Damage System. Make use of the mystical Waystones you encounter – sacrifice a bit of your blood and health to activate them, to spend your gathered Focus points and improve Atilla’s abilities. Death is but a door leading to the last Waystone you visited; however, with each new life comes the Hunger which you cannot resist forever… And if you are slain while overcome by the all-consuming need for blood, you WILL meet your final end.
Combat in Diluvian Ultra is all about staying mobile and choosing the best strategy to prevail — switch between Tech and Living Techno-Organic Weapons, combine Lethal and Armour damage, and keep moving to dodge enemy fire or deflect it with your Bloodsword; your foes are shrewd and will use the same tactics to defeat you, Diluvian Prince.
