The ever-expanding, genre-jumping, Early Access shooter from RedBedlam has a new content update that drops in another two levels, and the game can be picked up half price on Steam Early Access until this Sunday, January 11th, making it only £6.49!
“We’re continuing to have a great time expanding the Bedlam universe. The two new levels provide both gaming nostalgia and really fun gameplay. The arcade gunship level in the Integrity Towers will blow you away, literally and often ” said Nick Witcher, Marketing Director at RedBedlam.
The new content update brings the early-access build of Bedlam to well over 20 levels.
Bedlam is scheduled for a full release in Q1 2015.
In Bedlam, players will take on the role of Heather Quinn (aka Athena), a programmer at medical scanning developer Neurosphere who finds herself transported into the world of Starfire: a nineties FPS she remembers from her teen years. Searching for an explanation and a way home, she ventures beyond Starfire to discover a vast realm of interconnected game worlds documenting the evolution of the FPS genre and of video games in general.
Bedlam is adapted from the novel by Christopher Brookmyre, but diverges from the original in this change of protagonist. The novel’s hero, Ross Baker, does feature prominently in the game, but the switch to a female lead – who is a gamer and sci-fi fan – offered a fresh and bitingly humorous new perspective upon the “gameverse” that the player will explore.
