'Fallen Angel' Gets Release Date

by Rainier on Aug. 27, 2020 @ 8:00 a.m. PDT

Fallen Angel is a 2D pixel art, hack and slash RPG where you take the role of Lucifer in a quest to regain paradise.

After being banished from heaven... Lucifer returns for vengeance.
But the realms are in chaos.
The Archangels are in the midst of a power struggle, each fighting to rule Heaven themselves.
God has departed, leaving his creations to fend for themselves in a universe without fate.

Will you take the Mantle of God and become the new ruler of the universe?

...or will you end the tyranny of creation by destroying it all?

The title spins its own story derived from John Milton's “Paradise Lost”, where one plays as Lucifer, the angel that fell from Heaven and now seeks vengeance on God and his army. Lucifer soon discovers that God has departed Heaven, and the archangels are fighting for control of His kingdom. While the archangels are fighting each other, Lucifer takes to the clouds to wipe out the Heavenly army and take the Mantle of God for himself.

Drawing from the Old Testament, biblical Apocrypha, and a post-modern style, the many realms of Heaven are a strange and varied place. In addition to the classical pearly gates and angelic choirs, Lucifer will be ravaging his way through high-tech constructs, idyllic earth-like plains, floating islands, and more beyond. Each archangel will have a strong, thematic influence on the environments and creatures the player will encounter.

Players are equipped with blades, guns, claws, and a variety of skills to make their way through the realms of Heaven and reach the top. Players can use their preferred fighting styles to take on enemies whether that be head-to-head brute combat, maneuvering with precision and counter-attacks, or relying on ranged weapons to attack from afar. In addition to various fighting tactics, Lucifer can transform into a powerful, demonic rage machine, killing everything in his path.

Fallen Angel is currently hosting a closed beta with nearly 1,000 players and has made significant upgrades to its graphics and gameplay, making for one hell of a game.

Any players interested in participating can join the Fallen Angel Discord channel and will receive a Steam beta code to get a first-look at the game and provide feedback for its development.
