New release: Shepherd Slaughter

Max Becker of Blindhack Software writes in to tell me about Shepherd Slaughter, a top-down action RPG with a procedurally generated open world.

Here is the feature list:
  • Do battle with 70+ monsters.
  • Explore 10 unique dungeons scattered throughout a massive randomly generated world.
  • Take advantage of many different items and weapons.
  • Improve your skills, become a legendary warrior, and vanquish the Evil God.
  • Defend your flock of sheep against hordes of enemies in Survival mode.

Something about the game’s visual appearance makes me think of it as a much more ambitious, RPG version of Gauntlet, albeit minus the monster generators and constant weapon throwing. Take a look:

Shepherd Slaughter has been out since last year, but was recently updated with a variety of improvements. You can grab a free Windows or Linux demo to try it out–the full game is $3.00 through the developer or on Desura.
