Indie developer Golden Ruby Games and publisher Ripstone today announced that "paranormal platformer" Extreme Exorcism will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2015. Previously, the game was confirmed only for PC.
The announcement today, on Halloween, is fitting, given the game's subject material. Haven't heard of Extreme Exorcism? It's a platformer where "all of your actions will come back to haunt you..."
You play the role of an "extreme exorcist" named MaeBarrons. Her tactics are somewhat unorthodox ("holy water and a Bible just won't cut it with these ghosts"), so she uses a heavy-powered arsenal of swords, guns, grenades, mines, rocket launchers, and weaponized boomerangs.
She can also use lightning spells and Kung-Fu moves.
The main hook in Extreme Exorcism is that every time you kill a ghost, another appears that copies your every move. "So tread carefully, or prepare to reap what you sow. The longer you survive, the more extreme the game becomes."
Here are the basics about Extreme Exorcism, courtesy of Golden Ruby Games:
Story mode covers the ten areas of the haunted mansion culminating in a boss fight
