Immortal Redneck, the FPS set in Egypt has arrived on GOG

Posted by , / 3320 views
Immortal Redneck, the FPS set in Egypt with rogue-lite elements now has a release on GOG. It took them a few months to get it up, but it's nice they continue to add more Linux games.


It's a 64bit build on GOG, so no hunting down 32bit libs which is nice.

About the game
QuoteImmortal Redneck is an FPS set in Egypt with rogue-lite elements. The game mixes old-school first-person shooter action with a rogue-lite mechanics. Frantic gameplay, twitch controls and an arcade-style feel meet randomly generated dungeons, a complete skill tree, permanent death and 9 classes with different traits.

The game revolves around a redneck tourist who wakes up mummified in ancient Egypt after an accident. Why is he here? How did he survive the accident? And why the hell is he mummified?!

The answer lies within the three danger-filled pyramids of Giza, all protected by an army of monsters and huge bosses. Obviously, your mission is to get inside the pyramids, kill all the enemies and discover what's going on!


I already tested out the Steam version of the game, if you missed it here's my previous thoughts.

If you're in need of a new FPS game, it's worth the price. Find it on GOG now. They also have it with 20% off so if you're a bit low on cash it could be your next purchase!

The trailer looks an awful lot like Ziggurat with funny voiceover. Is that impression representative of how it plays?

It's not completely wrong.
Definitely the same (sub) genre.

I would say the upgrade system in Immortal Redneck feels far more rewarding, while the gunplay itself feels a bit better in Ziggurat.

Also, the best weapon in Immortal Redneck is the potato gun. It's basically a fast firing, piercing (!!) grenade launcher
