· Manchester-set videogame Beyond Flesh and Blood has created a fresh version for people to play the in Deansgate, right up to Beetham Tower
‘Golden Street’ Deansgate in Manchester’s City Centre alongside Beetham Tower, one of its most iconic buildings, will be featured in a brand new version ‘Beyond Flesh and Blood’.
The demo will be available from the same site b-fb.net and on their IndieDB page [http://www.indiedb.com/games/beyond-flesh-and-blood/downloads]. Save the date: Tuesday 16th February. It was streamed through Machinima partners SBOC Entertainment as well as by ‘Endybeast’, ‘Shots Fired’ and ‘ThatOtherPhil’ for the US.
Improved features since its slightly gimmicky Christmas demo include proper control mapping to PC and glimpses into the full storyline of the game complete with characters, details of which will be released shortly.
There will be stickers and posters popping up all over Manchester – markers for real geographical points in the game and posted as a journey on Twitter.
PIXELBOMB GAMES have made it their company mission to make the city one which is as iconic as London in the gaming world – by re-imagining it in a dystopian, overgrown and artful light.
The northern PC and console game Beyond Flesh and Blood will be releasing the full version on PC, XBOX, PS4 and Linux at the end of the year.
The Steam community Greenlit the game in their thousands when it was still a concept, ‘Beyond: Flesh and Blood’ 2014, garnering the all-important YES in just 13 days – which will allow the developers to finally realize their science-fiction version of Manchester.
Beyond Flesh and Blood
A graphically-intense nod to the 3rd person shooter genre, Beyond Flesh and Blood challenges players to blast through multiple levels of hostile scavenger forces and mutating enemy threats on a mission to help reclaim the surface of Earth – starting with dystopian Manchester.
Players jack into advanced multi-ability combat rigs, battle a range of formidable enemies and mech weapon systems across the post-apocalyptic UK city in fast-paced gameplay that will push shooter skills to the limit.
Beyond Flesh and Blood will release on PC later this year, and the studio aim to release on XBOX One and Playstation 4 in 2015.
