Developer Shotgun With Glittersand publisher Feardemic are declaring war on the forces of evil by tasking renowned exorcist Padre Alexander with serving divine justice in One Shell Straight to Hell, the anticipated twin-stick shooter that combines fast-paced rogue-lite exploration with strategic base defence phases, coming to Steam on February 9th at the price of $19.99 / €18.99 / £18.99.
What’s more, the game will launch alongside ‘One Shell Straight to Hell X Layers of Fear’, an unexpected crossover DLC that will make players revisit the creepy hallways of Bloober Team’s acclaimed psychological horror adventure. The DLC will be available for free during the launch week.
With ONE SHELL STRAIGHT TO HELL, Padre comes to assist the Halliwell family who for generations have been keeping an earthly entrance to hell in check. The portal was quiet for far too long and as such the residents of the mansion slowly forgot their task, treating their burden more as a fairy tale.
Descend into ever-changing dungeons that overflow with demonic enemies that pit the player against relentless waves of satanic hordes. Bristling with a collection of monsters and bosses determined to lay waste to the world, the player must use an assortment of ludicrous weapons and traps to hold them at bay and complete the Papal sanctioned mission.
