Pine Studio and Headup Games have announced that their heavy metal first-person platformer, SEUM: Speedrunners From Hell, will release on PS4 and Xbox One this September. The game, which is already out on PC, is described as “an unholy child of Quake 3 and Super Meat Boy.”
If this sounds terrifing, take solace in how much fun SEUM appears to play. It is a fast paced speedrunning platformer in which your goal is to reach the end as soon as you can. This may sound simple but the game has many difficult challenges and many different ways of overcoming them from shooting fireballs, to anti-gravity puzzles, and so on.
Humor and references to other games are a big part of the title, as is it’s heavy metal soundtrack. Gameplay mostly relies on your skills, precision, pathfinding, and reactions, with the game having over 100 levels ranging from the pits of Hell to heavy metal vistas.
SEUM appears to take the best parts of fast-paced platforming while adding many different gameplay systems to provide a satisfying, death laden experience into Hell.
You can check out an official description below.
SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell is the world’s only competitive heavy metal first-person platformer. Like an unholy child of Quake 3 and Super Meat Boy, SEUM is truly hardcore and focuses on speed and fast reactions. Race across and jump over platforms and bounce pads while shooting fireballs as you battle to reach an exit portal in the minimum amount of time. Reverse time and gravity. Compete with all players for top times in the online high score ladder. Only the toughest players will receive the Uber Skull medals!
If mind-blowing speed and adrenaline blasting its way through your body seems too boring for your speed running blitzkrieg, then search for the beer cans hidden in each level. Who knows which secrets can be discovered by finding all of these delicious refreshments?
