Doom inspired artwork for Hellmut: The Badass from Hell

Hellmut: the Badass from Hell is a fast-paced dungeon crawler that lets you take on the demonic hordes with a variety of highly destructive weapons and skills. You can expect to see randomly generated worlds filled with equally random bosses, plenty of treasure and weapons to liberate from your enemies, and naturally, a very casual relationship with realism or common sense.

Since the gameplay is pretty much the only thing that matters in these types of games, allow me to share with you the recently posted announcement trailer. It should give you a pretty damn good idea of what to expect from Hellmut. Have a look:

Each time you manage to complete the game you'll be given access to an additional Transformation, which is essentially a new character with its own unique spells and abilities. The Rat King mostly fights by throwing hordes of rats at whatever stands in his way, the Orc Fairy uses a combination of might and magic to squash anything that dares stand before her, the Slimeball "dips enemies in questionable goo", and so forth. All of the characters are obviously designed to ridiculous, but as long as they offer new and interesting ways of playing the game I don't really see that as too much of a hindrance.

Hellmut: The Badass from Hell will be coming to PC and consoles in early 2018, though no exact release date has been announced just yet. If you would like to learn a little bit more, or just keep an eye on its development moving forward, you should head over to either Steam or the official website. And finally, here's a couple of colorful images to send you on your way:
