Announced formally in August, studio Paper Cult‘s Bloodroots is an indie unafraid of splattering your screen with a spray of red — on the regular. Play as Mr. Wolf as he massacres his way through a hand-crafted world, bent on wielding destruction with every tool at his disposal. Says Bloodroots of itself:
“In this relentless action game, you’ll choreograph spectacular, ultra-violent combos by making use of everything around you, from hatchets, to ladders, to…carrots? It’s improvise or die, as Mr. Wolf fights his way to the center of the mystery: why was he betrayed?”
Bloodroots utilizes a Western-style revenge story brimming with what it calls “deranged” characters. It’s a fascinating blend of the outrageous and the intriguing that has us highly interested in its ultimate release, set vaguely for 2019. Bloodroots is currently set to launch on PC and consoles, and is being both developed and published by Montreal-based studio Paper Cult.
