Slayers X: Terminal Aftermath: Vengance of the Slayer, the first-person shooter spinoff of Hypnospace Outlaw releases June 1st onto PC and Game Pass

From Press Release:

Calling all Slayers!

Slayers X: Terminal Aftermath: Vengance of the Slayer, the batshit first-person Hypnospace Outlaw spin-off, is finally launching on June 1, for both PC and Game Pass.

This is a tough one to explain, so buckle up.

Developer Zane Lofton of Big Z Studios, the creator of Slayers X, started making Slayers X back in 1999. Unfortunately, just as he was close to completing his masterpiece, the CD-ROM went missing and was lost. Decades went by before Zane finally found it again, and the game is now ready to launch, published by No More Robots.

Except that Zane doesn’t actually exist, and none of this is true.

Zane is a character from the award-winning Hypnospace Outlaw, and Slayers X is a spin-off from Hypnospace, created by the original Hypnospace team. But that’s not going to stop us from pretending like Zane is real, and is ready to kick you in the nards with his ridiculous, 18-rated turd-em-up.

Zane’s mom has been blown up by the Psyko Sindikate, and Zane is on a path to revenge her. Underneath this pile of blood, gore and toilet jokes, Slayers X aims to capture the feel of shooters from the 90s, in the very same way that Hypnospace Outlaw perfectly captured operating systems from that same period.

It honestly has be played to be believed, with over-the-top weapons, cutscenes that could have been pulled from a different era, and a protagonist who cannot stop commenting on every single thing that happens, in the most crude manner possible.

Slayers X will launch on Steam and Game Pass for PC and Xbox on June 1.
