[Update]: Amid Evil is soon getting a prequel expansion - The Black Labyrinth!

If you've got an itch that can only be scratched by hyper-aggressive oldschool FPS games, you might want to check out the newly released Amid Evil. It's being published by the same team that created the truly excellent Dusk, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to hear that Amid Evil is just as action-packed and unrelenting as its predecessor, or that it has just as kick-ass of a soundtrack!

However, while Dusk mostly used traditional FPS weapons with a couple of twists here and there, Amid Evil's arsenal is more reminiscent of Hexen's than Doom's. What I mean by this is that you'll be using all sorts of magic-spewing devices to bring down the pain upon your enemies, including one that seems to shoot out miniature suns!

Since an oldschool FPS game is all about the action and the spectacle, I'll skip straight to the good part and share with you the recently posted launch trailer. It's quite an explosive one! Have a look:
