Hellpoint Questions Science In This Hellish RPG

Hellpoint coming this summer

Coming to PC and consoles this summer, Hellpoint is an action RPG that fuses science and the occult on board a space station.

Already a title that’s been on my wishlist since I covered it on my other siteHellpoint is a ‘dark sci-fi RPG’ from a publishing favourite of mine, tinyBuild, and developers, Cradle Games.

Following a ‘massive quantum cataclysm’ called the Merge, you awake in a seemingly isolated space station called Irid Novo; the line between science and the occult is significantly blurred.

In Hellpoint you are an organically printed being, made by The Author, and in this first-person/third-person action RPG, you can switch between a range of melee and ranged weapons.

It’s worth noting that the early material mentions of co-op play too… sounds promising!

Key features in Hellpoint include:

  • Souls-like gameplay in a unique setting: Explore the derelict space station of Irid Novo and face bizarre enemies with a tight and unforgiving combat system.
  • Occult space story: Blending science and fantasy, the intensely atmospheric dark sci-fi setting will keep you searching for answers.
  • Dynamic World: The Quantic System acts as a dungeon master, slightly transforming the game world every time you die and triggering events as the station revolves around the black hole. 
  • Jump-in co-op and PvP multiplayer: Ask a friend to press Start to join a couch co-op session or call for assistance online. Hellpoint offers a full, uninterrupted co-op story with shared loot drops.
