Hatred – a horror title pushing the boundaries of mass murder
Independent developer Destructive Creations has just revealed its first title – Hatred. Hatred is portrayed as an isometric shooter featuring a pretty-disturbing atmosphere in which players take the role of a nameless cold-blooded antagonist hell-bent on killing everyone on the planet; at least until he dies, which is apparently what he wants. Hatred takes place on the outskirts of New York State, where gamers will fight law-enforcements, gather equipment from the “human shields”, after which further delve into the antagonist’s hateful mind (i.e. kill more people).
“The question you may ask is: why do they do this? These days, when a lot of games are heading to be polite, colorful, politically correct and trying to be some kind of higher art, rather than just an entertainment – we wanted to create something against trends”, says Destructive Creations. “Something different, something that could give the player a pure, gaming pleasure. Here comes our game, which takes no prisoners and makes no excuses. We say ‘yes, it is a game about killing people’ and the only reason of the antagonist doing that sick stuff is his deep-rooted hatred. Player has to ask himself what can push any human being to mass-murder”.
“We provoke this question – ‘why do they do this?’ – using new Unreal Engine 4, pushing its physics (or rather PhysX) systems to the limits and trying to make the visuals as good as possible. It’s not a simple task, because of the game’s non-linear structure and a lot of characters on the screen. But here at Destructive Creations, we are an experienced team and we know how to handle the challenge!”
If you want to get a sample of just how crazy our antagonist is, just read his “manifesto” – “My name is not important. What is important is what I’m going to do. I just fu*kin’ hate this world. And the human worms feasting on its corpus. My whole life is just cold, bitter hatred. And I always wanted to die violently. This is the time of vengeance and no life is worth saving. And I will put in the grave as many as I can. It’s time for me to kill. And it’s time for me to die. My genocide crusade begins here”.
Hatred is scheduled for a Q2 2015 release, exclusively on the PC.
