Today, independent developer South East Games released a new trailer for its first person melee combat game Paint the Town Red, as well as a new update.

For those that don’t know, Paint the Town Red first emerged onto the scene back on October 13, 2015 for the PC, Mac, and Linux, via Steam Early Access. Since its launch, it’s been one of the more popular games on the early access platform.

Here’s an overview of the game, courtesy of its Steam page:

Paint the Town Red is a chaotic first person melee combat game set in different locations and time periods. The voxel-based enemies can be punched, bashed, kicked, stabbed and sliced completely dynamically using almost anything that isn’t nailed down.

You’ll need to use your wits, speed and anything you can get your hands on in epic bar fights, disco brawls, old west saloon rumbles, college frat house beat-downs and a lot more.

Current Features

  • Completely destructible voxel-based enemies

  • Biker Bar, Disco, Prison and Pirate Cove scenarios with unique enemies, weapons, etc

  • Arena mode with new challenges added frequently

  • Online Co-op Multiplayer

  • Level Editor and Steam Workshop support with hundreds of user created levels

  • Leaderboards

  • Sandbox level to test features, weapons and mechanics

  • Vast array of level and period appropriate weaponry

  • Boss enemies that present unique challenges and rewards

  • Full controller support

Given that the game is in Early Access, this means the developer can add more content and features as the game continues development towards a final release. Some of these planned additions include a new rogue-like mode with character progression and persistent unlockables, more scenario levels set in the past, present, and future, an endless Arena mode for single player and co-op, and many more enemy and weapon types.

As mentioned at the top of the article, the game has a new update — 0.7.2 — which adds a handful of new props for the Level Editor and will fix the issue of enemies getting stuck inside stairs and platforms in many cases. You can check out the patch notes here.

Also mentioned at the top of article, is that a new trailer has been released. According to South East Games, this new trailer was created to better reflect the current state of the game and to give a sneak peak of what it’s working on.
