'Shell Runner' Is A PvE Extraction Shooter, Coming To Steam Early Access Next Week - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on July 9, 2024 @ 12:37 a.m. PDT

Designed for fans of intense, fast-paced PvE extraction shooter games, Shell Runner delivers a gripping blend of tactical combat and high-stakes looting.

Developed by a passionate team of five members, this game plunges players into a brutal dystopian world where every decision could mean life or death.

Step into the shoes of a mercenary navigating the gritty underworld of 2045's urban sprawls dominated by megacorporations. As a Shell Runner, players control lifelike Shells to undertake perilous PvE extraction missions. Choose from over 20 unique Shells, each offering distinct advantages and risks, and carve your path through the unforgiving sprawl where life is cheap and every mission offers high stakes. Whether playing solo or in co-op mode with allies, each mission presents a procedurally generated map, ensuring dynamic gameplay with hand-crafted boss encounters and unpredictable challenges.

Players must leverage a diverse arsenal of weaponry and strategic modifiers to survive each encounter, adapting tactics to the ever-changing landscape of corporate intrigue and urban warfare. Every decision matters, as losing a Shell means forfeiting all acquired gear and loot, emphasizing the high stakes of each mission. Stay on your toes, plan your attack, and hit your targets where they least expect it. 

No two runs are the same. Every mission is a procedurally-generated map, combining hand-crafted boss encounters with unpredictable randomness, ensuring no two runs are the same. Every Shell and item comes with random modifiers, meaning every contract is a risk - but also an opportunity. One job in the slums might leave you barely breaking even - the next one might make you break the bank. So get to work, Shell Runner, Silicon won’t earn itself!

Shell Runner will be available for Early Access on PC via Steam for $14.99 USD starting July 15, 2024 and will remain so for 3 to 6 months.

“The game is fully playable in both single player and co-op. It has been extensively tested and offers a great amount of content to explore and engage with."

“We plan to include more missions, more levels, different mission objectives, and potentially lots of additional content like weapons, shells, gadgets, and QoL improvements.”

Shell Runner is coming to PC (Steam) in late 2024/early 2025.
