Betrayer is the debut game from Blackpowder Games


2:00 PM on 08.05.2013



If you make a trailer that combines a striking look and an unusual setting, you're sure to get my attention. This trailer for Betrayer, the debut game from Blackpowder Games, does just that. The studio was started by former Monolith developers, famous for F.E.A.R. and No One Lives Forever

You character has traveled to an English colony in which the world has been drained of all color and corrupted settlers and spectres roam the landscape. Just like The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Betrayer's setting in history is an under-explored one; the colonization of North America gave rise to new myths and legends, not least the fate of the Roanoke Colony. Betrayer will be appearing on Steam Early Access later in August.

Review: Betrayer

Eerie action game Betrayer releasing March 24

Betrayer is a good name for a game, I think. And it looks like a real cool game, too. Maybe some of you can attest to that, as it's been playable through Early Access for a few months. Now it's ready for prime time, done and...more

Betrayer is really confusing, but in a good way

I played Betrayer today, and I have no idea what it's about. Not because of any sort of inattentiveness on my part, but because the ex-Monolith developers don't want me to know what it's about. That's kind of the intrig...more

Ex-Monolith devs' Betrayer joins Steam Early Access

Betrayer caught our eye the other day. It's in development at Blackpowder Games, which is better known as the six-person team made up of former Monolith Productions devs. Perhaps just as importantly, it's the game with that s...more

Slugcat gifs? Slugcat gifs

It's been a while since I've espoused my love for Rain World. It looks even smoother in this interesting Kickstarter update, as the game has transitioned to Unity. The update is a good read, but if you're just here for the gifs, well, I feel you. Ain't nothing wrong with that.more

Five Nights at Freddy's 2 jump scares onto Greenlight

Just getting over the PTSD of your last visit to Freddy Fazbear's Pizza? Well too damn bad, because it's time to get spooked again. Normally I'd roll my eyes at the idea of a sequel being announced barely three months since t...more

PlayStation Network's two-week Halloween sale starts today

October brings out my desire to do Halloween-related things. Staying up late to watch horror movies? "Halloween." Eating random candy weeks beforehand? "Halloween." Playing scary games? You guessed it. Sony has the same idea ...more
