Voice of Indie #XBLIG News: Action Shooter RPG Mashup “Lair of the Evildoer” Coming Soon
Good news! The evil Dr. Odious has created you and given you the gift of life. Bad news! He’s decided you are not worth his time! Now you must escape his procedurally generated lair, fighting monsters and collecting loot as you go.
From the development studio that brought us “Zombie Accountant” Going Loud Studios has a new action RPG shooter mashup coming soon to the Xbox Live Indie Games marketplace called “Lair of the Evildoer“.
I’ve had the pleasure of playtesting this game, and I have to say once I tried it that I was hooked–it combines many aspects of Indie Gaming into one: shooters, action adventure games, RPG’s, and even the top-down views found in many roguelike titles. Lair of the Evildoer is a fantastic and challenging game offering impressively detailed RPG mechanics, level ups, statistics and attributes, and a wide array of weaponry to utilize in-game.
This game is enjoyable on many levels especially since it gets more challenging as players level up their character and face enemies of the same level. The character customization is a terrific feature, and it reflects RPG’s in that gamers can mold their hero in any way they choose, utilizing different weapons that are each balanced in a way to provide advantages and disadvantages for any situation.
Whether you’re the type of gamer who enjoys shooters or RPG’s, this game will provide entertaining gameplay for players because it encompasses such a wide selection of genres. The game will feature boss battles, a myriad of enemies that have special classifications–sort of like randomized mini-bosses with special powers. There are also power-ups, ammo drops & health pickups to find along the way.
