“In light of the unprecedented events facing the world, we have been forced to
postpone the launch of the game. We plan to use the additional development time
not just for polishing, but also to address the feedback we’ve gathered and make
Hellpoint an even better gaming experience for everybody! The feedback of the
community had such enthusiasm and energy.”
Hellpoint is set in the aftermath of a massive quantum cataclysm called the
Merge. You wake up on board the Irid Novo space station, a beacon of galactic
cooperation and scientific exploration gone horribly wrong. What happens next
will be solely determined by your choices.
- Souls-like gameplay in a unique setting: Explore the derelict
space station of Irid Novo and face bizarre enemies with a tight and
unforgiving combat system.
- Occult space story: Blending science and fantasy, the intensely
atmospheric dark sci-fi setting will keep you searching for answers.
- Dynamic World: The Quantic System acts as a dungeon master,
slightly transforming the game world every time you die and triggering
events as the station revolves around the black hole.
- Jump-in co-op and PvP multiplayer: Ask a friend to press Start to
join a couch co-op session or call for assistance online. Hellpoint offers a
full, uninterrupted co-op story with shared loot drops.
