Party like if it’s 1996! Retro F.P.S. STRAFE needs your support and has the best video game trailer ever!

STRAFE is a retro F.P.S. that needs your support. It also has the best video game trailer EVER and an unexpectedly shitcool official website that will remind to old-timers the dawn of the webernet.

Strictly single-player, it will feature permadeath, automatically generated levels, extreme mayhem and Oculus rift support. The gore will remain even after death, and as the developer explained to an interview given to Eurogamer:

Every shell casing. Every blown-off limb. Every drop of monster juice. It all persists in the environment and never fades away, disappears, or disappoints. Just as you’d expect from a real-world massacre.
(…)
Since the levels constantly change, this blood and gore is your compass in Strafe®. It informs you where you’ve previously traveled and directs you toward new paths of destruction in each level set.

Shit, even John Romero has expressed his supports! As we speak and with 25 days to go,  1,529 backers have pledged $53,800 out of a $185,096 goal. The platforms will be PC and Mac. Incorrigible console gamers such as myself will cross their fingers for future ports.
