Betrayer stabs Steam in the back today

From the team that brought you FEAR and No One Lives Forever, Blackpowder Games’ indie action/adventure FPS Betrayer is now available for the PC.

“Betrayer is the kind of game we’ve been wanting to make ever since we shipped FEAR,” says the game’s designer and writer, Craig Hubbard. “You can explore large, open environments in search of clues and loot. You can tackle challenges aggressively or stealthily. You can outfit yourself with the equipment that best suits your play style. It’s a very player-driven experience.”

Taking place in an abandoned colony in the New World, circa 1604, Betrayer tasks you with solving a mystery- what happened to all the colonists? The plot of Betrayer sounds extremely Roanoke-like (look it up, you’ll be glad you did) and that’s a very good thing if you know anything about the extremely odd disappearances fro the early days of colonial America. Of course, in this particular tale, the supernatural most definitely plays a part.

You’ll be fighting soldiers and beasts from beyond in the New World of the 17th century with period weaponry and the stealth that the natural landscape affords. Betrayer looks really different, which is great, and with Blackpowder’s collective resume, you know they know a thing or two about scaring the player- which should be a plus. I really like that ability to turn the game to black and white and all the shades in between too; very unique.

Betrayer is available now on Steam and can be had for the PC for $19.99 USD.
