Six years in the making, with an incredibly detailed visual style that mixes high quality (and often gruesome) painting with pixel-art, Death Trash is getting a demo real soon. Developer Crafting Legends has confirmed it's officially coming to Steam Next Fest, which begins on June 16 and runs through June 22.

You'll get 1-2 hours to play through of the game start and it will be supported across Linux, macOS and Windows with mouse / keyboard and gamepad supported along with local co-op already hooked up.

"Death Trash features a world where cosmic horrors long for humanity but meet punks with shotguns. Influenced by post-apocalyptic, horror, and cyberpunk classics but with a fresh personality of its own. Death Trash combines the crunch and depth of old-school, role-playing classics with the controls and game feel of modern games."

Featuring open-world real-time gameplay, Death Trash is a hand-crafted experience that will feature a full story campaign with optional local co-op play. Expect to see ranged and melee combat, stealth, dialogue with multiple choices, a full crafting and inventory system, RPG inspired skills like pick-pocketing and…puking.

The main game should enter Early Access later this year.

You can follow Death Trash on Steam.

Update: On Jun 12, another trailer dropped:

RagnarRox put up a great video of the demo on his YouTube channel: that I highly recommend, usually he finds old obscure unknown indie horrors that really are forgotten gems.
