Three years after the Kickstarter campaign, the great looking dark sci-fi action RPG Hellpoint from Cradle Games and tinyBuild is confirmed for launch with Linux support on April 16.

Hellpoint is an intense, dark sci-fi RPG set on a derelict space station orbiting an ominous supermassive black hole. Taking inspiration from games like Dark Souls and Dead Space and movies like Event Horizon and Hellraiser, Hellpoint is doubling down on co-op multiplayer (with both split-screen and online support) while immersing players in a twisted narrative involving Cosmic Gods, quantum physics, and extinct space civilizations. Sounds awesome, everything I want in a sci-fi game.

Feature Highlight:

  • Souls-like gameplay in a unique setting: Explore the derelict space station of Irid Novo and face bizarre enemies with a tight and unforgiving combat system.
  • Occult space story: Blending science and fantasy, the intensely atmospheric dark sci-fi setting will keep you searching for answers.
  • Dynamic World: The Quantic System acts as a dungeon master; slightly transforming the game world every time you die and triggering events as the station revolves around the black hole.
  • Jump-in co-op and PvP multiplayer: Ask a friend to press Start to join a couch co-op session or call for assistance online. Hellpoint offers a full, uninterrupted co-op story with shared loot drops.
  • Split-screen support: The full Hellpoint experience is available in jump-in/jump-out split-screen multiplayer.

Nice to see a proper simultaneous release across Linux, macOS, Windows! Definitely going to be taking a good look at this, expect some thoughts up after release.

You can wishlist it now on Steam.

I waiting this game for years, I'm proudly ![](https://fotos.subefotos.com/eb29177bc81d441877b974fc6cc86c5do.jpg )
The aesthetic is really cool, but man am I tired of Dark Souls games. I never got into this new 'genre' of action game. It's too bad, because all the Dark Souls clones have cool art design. Love to have this as a isometric Action RPG, or a Rune or Soul Reaver-like action-adventure game. Oh well...

Narrow, dark corridors in a scary universe...

Translation: Scary universe is here only to justify a poor game with 1/ narrow corridors, 2/ design with no color, 3/ weak animation of creatures and 4/ linear gameplay. That sort of game is onyl good to create a depressive mood :)
I'm no longer scary about dark and sudden cries for decades, since my ten year old in fact. Not my cup of tea

I was so scared by Outlast, I stopped playing in the DLC.
