SteamDolls: Order of Chaos
The Shady Gentlemen have announced a game for the Nintendo Switch, called SteamDolls: Order of Chaos. It’s described as a “steampunk inspired metroidvania game with a grimy touch of brutality”, and its Kickstarter campaign will go live later in June. Release is planned for 2021.
Here’s a trailer, some details, the list of key features and some screenshots for the game:
In the mist of time, society is eaten by industry, and its citizens oppressed by an authoritarian and omniscient cult. The Whisper (David Hayter), a violent anarchist, dreams about a revolution that will destroy the order of things. He devotes himself to expose the dark side of those in power and bring awareness to the people. His obsessive quest for the ultimate truth will throw him into a world of betrayal and sorcery where the only certainty is the imminent end of the world.
SteamDolls is a steampunk inspired metroidvania game with a grimy touch of brutality. Blast your way to your objective or stick to the shadows and perform violent assassinations on unsuspecting guards as you struggle with the haunting apparitions of a mesmerizing witch trying to reveal the truth about a conspiracy that could shake the very foundation of the world.
ACTION EXPLORATION STEALTH AND BLOOD. Inspired by games like Castlevania and Hollow knight. Nourished by the fury of Dead Cells and the gloom of Bloodborne. Lose yourself in a labyrinthine city, full of secrets and madness.
“When fossil fuels were depleted, it was time for a change. But it never came. The discovery of a new superconductive material made sure the cycle never broke.” This is the way their world ends, not with a bang but a whisper. Society crumbled over time, falling into a state of disarray. Innovation became stagnation. Progression to regression. Not future, nor past. An industrial era haunted by the ghost of what came before. Mankind, their mentality ever worsening as idle habits fed into the City. Unified and tortuous it swallowed what remained of their humanity. Stealing away their free will, their determination. Crushing their souls until nothing remained. Madness.
Desperate for an alternative way to regain the glory of Old, Scientists searched for a remedy. Until they found something. Something that should have been left alone. Mindless citizens, the needed catalyst. Transforming them. Adapting their flesh. Mere dolls. Cruel monsters. Discover the truth of these broken lives in the lore of Steamdolls : Order of Chaos.
In Steamdolls, you assume the role of a cunning thief and anarchist known as “The Whisper” and make your way through heavily secured environments. (Voiced by Mr. David Hayter). Here is the flamboyant cast you will encounter during the game. A goddess of Nature. A rich immortal who wants to die. A female gunslinger with deadly aim.
From the standard hired henchman who will be easily dispatched to the dangerous and disgusting mutated monster by a bio-mechanical virus, you have all kind of adversaries and deformed Bosses in Steamdolls.
- 2D brutal fast paced metroidvania in a steampunk universe.
- Gruesome stealth kills.
- A vast city to explore.
- David Hayter (Solid Snake) is the voice of The Whisper.
- Hand-drawn Cutscenes for the narrative parts.
