Announced last year, and previewed by us at GDC, Extreme Exorcism from Ripstone and developer Golden Ruby Games is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Wii U, and PC on September 23 for $12.99.
An 8-bit paranormal platformer, Extreme Exorcism tasks you with exterminating all ghosts in a haunted house, but these ghosts are much smarter than you might expect:
In Extreme Exorcism, players take on the role of Extreme Exorcist Mae Barrons – whose unconventional supernatural skills are called upon when everything and everyone else has failed to rid a haunted house of its ghostly presence. However, these aren’t your average poltergeists, as each time a spirit is eliminated, another will mimic Mae’s prior movements, weapon fires and dodges. With Extreme Exorcism, players are their own worst enemy and the longer they survive, the more chaotic the game becomes.
To aid in her efforts, Mae’s equipped with a lethal arsenal of more than 20 ghost-busting weapons, including swords, guns, grenades, mines, rocket launchers, razor-sharp boomerangs, lightning spells and Kung-Fu moves. She’ll need all the firepower she can obtain, as she’ll face 50 challenges, a single player story mode and local multiplayer with up-to four players, including both Co-op and Deathmatch modes.
