Golborne, England - April 8th 2022- The Numbered Entity Project: James K. Isaac unshackles his new adventure-thriller-RPG Through the Kill Screen, for PC and Linux, available on Steam and Itch.io. Can anyone survive beyond the final level? Can you?
Dodge the spittle from the Headteacher's rage before goading her with a swift flick of nose gold. Blow raspberries at the rude elderly fellow who just whacked you with his walking stick. Conquer the monster living under your best friend's bed, then hop down the arcade and defeat a martial-arts obsessed teenager on new, super-hit Avenue Brawlers 2. Life is full of fun for a carefree 1980s kid.
In the small town of Snoring, fueled by blue syrup-ice Slushies, you live your 1980s kid's life with cheekiness, imagination and finger speed. Until someone in the neighbouring town of Mogford achieves the unthinkable! Whispers tell of a kid who broke the kill-screen, who went beyond the final level and uncovered something...monstrous!
Through the Kill Screen is an Adventure RPG with horror/thriller elements. You take the role of Leon, a mischievous boy enjoying his 1980s childhood who finds himself in the Naughty Corridor awaiting an ear-bashing from the evil Head Teacher. Imagine a bit of The Goonies, War Games and Ferris Bueller's Day Off mixed with the great RPGs Mother, Undertale with a dash of Lisa: the Painful and you'll be somewhat prepared for a colourful and sinister quest through small-town Britain. In a world full of curiosities, fun and danger, Through the Kill Screen is a journey quite different from anything you have experienced before.
At times quirky, at times sinister and tense, you'll use your powers of CHEEKINESS, IMAGINATION and FINGER SPEED to progress through an adult-run world. Make friends, free corrupted townsfolk and stand up to the 8-bit nightmares plotting behind that final kill-screen. With multiple endings, your actions decide how your character grows up and what consequences result from their quest. All this, to the sound of amazing chip-tunes by some of Youtube's most talented composers. Check out the trailer and images here, on Steam: http://bit.ly/3x6sAag
Through the Kill Screen is released on April 20th 2022 on PC and Linux, for $5.99/£4.99 from Steam and Itch.io.
