'Redneck Ed: Astro Monster Show' Gets Release Date - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Aug. 17, 2020 @ 8:26 a.m. PDT

Redneck Ed: Astro Monster Show is a satirical genre mash-up, an arcade-style beat 'em up set in a crazy, hand-drawn world, where you play through an offbeat story with multiple endings.

You play as Redneck Ed, a mechanic who gets swept up in intergalactic show business while searching for his missing face. The game features electrifying gameplay with non-stop waves of enemies, arena fighting, upgradeable abilities, and a chance to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the inner workings of the most sadistic game show in the universe.

While making their way through the game’s world, the player will end up working towards one of several possible endings, determined by the set of side quests they choose to complete. Ed’s really gonna have to get his hands dirty by completing various tasks for the local aliens. Well, at least the ones who do not immediately want to kill him, that is!

The game’s hand-drawn visuals give it a unique appeal you won't find in many other projects — its technicolor world is a real eye-catcher! The soundtrack, composed specifically for the game, further emphasizes the action on the screen.

Buckle up, because you and Ed have quite an adventure ahead of you. One that comes packed with an action-packed plot, surrealistic art style, and tons of clever Easter eggs.

Lights! Camera! Show 'em what you got!

Key Features:

  • 15 levels of total chaos: A riot of colors in a whimsical world populated by aliens that need to be seen to be believed. Inspired by timeless movies and classical games, the levels contain tons of Easter eggs, so a-hunting Ed will go!
  • Maniacal bosses: Don't ever think about stopping, not even for a second! Gotta keep the producers happy, lest they axe your contract together with your head. Attack to the sick beat of the killer soundtrack as you take on impossible enemies. If it bleeds – Ed can bash its skull in with a wrench!
  • A real thriller: You're an actor swept up in the cutthroat world of show business. Killing monsters, conquering bosses, going on life-threatening adventures across awesome outlandish levels — all of this is still just the wrapping. Dig deeper and uncover the twisted plot behind all the glitter and gorgeous visuals. How the final episode of the show will play out is entirely up to you!
  • А rip-roaring beat'em up with bright, offbeat art!: Face off against endless hordes of cosmic abominations, solve puzzles, and knock over a few glasses at a bar, looking for allies who would help you find the answers to the mysteries that plague the intergalactic entertainment industry.

Redneck Ed: Astro Monster Show is coming to PC (Steam) on September 10, 2020.
