Deadbolt is an action stealth game from the makers of Risk of Rain

Risk of Rain was an excellent action-platformer with some roguelike elements added to it so seeing the same team tackle one of my favorite genres, the stealth games, is an exciting thing indeed.

Deadbolt is an extremely challenging hybrid between stealth & action that puts you in to the shoes of the Grim Reaper who needs to quell an undead uprising through a whole lot of sneaky violence given that a direct approach simply doesn't work for a man of his age that dies in one shot. The trailer is right below:


According to its Steam store page here's what you can expect from Deadbolt:

- Complete over 30 extremely challenging missions

- Unlock and obtain over 30 weapons, ranging from a reaper's scythe to an automatic grenade launcher

- Fight over 35 enemy types, from zombies to vampires to bosses and more

- Choose your playstyle: quiet assassin, loud one-man army, or anything in between

- Gib them all! DEADBOLT's dynamic gore system guarantees that all evisceration leads to satisfaction

- Choose your own way to complete a mission - no mission has to be completed in one way

- Accomplish a variety of objectives, like assassinating gang leaders and investigating mysteries

- Multi-genre soundtrack created by the talented Chris Christodoulou of the Risk of Rain OST 

Personally I'm rather excited for this because Hopoo Games have proven themselves through Risk of Rain as more than capable of making a very compelling action game mix so hopefully Deadbolt continues on with that tradition.

As of right now there is no concrete release date set though Deadbolt is arriving in Q1 2016 so expect an announcement regarding that in the near future.
