Penny Blood: Hellbound Available on Early Access

Developers YUKIKAZE, Studio Wildrose, and Natsume-Atari have released hack-and-slash roguelike Penny Blood: Hellbound on Steam Early Access for $19.99. Some of the new content in the Early Access from its recent closed beta includes a new playable character named Axeman, a new Japanese horror-themed Daidoji Temple area with new bosses and enemies, new facilities and dungeon NPCs, and purchasable badges to decorate the hideout. The game serves as a prequel to Penny Blood, the spiritual successor to the Shadow Hearts series, with its full release expected in summer 2024.

Penny Blood: Hellbound takes place in the 1920s and follows six powerful anarchists known as the Hellhounders, each equipped with their own weapons, attacks, and skills. Players can select two out of the six characters at any time, as they attempt to break free from prison and solve the mystery of their imprisonment at the hands of the enigmatic Celestial Rainbow. Upon death, players are teleported back to prison with Malice, which can be used to learn new skills and gain power-ups. Other features in the game include befriending NPCs that appear exclusively in dungeons and aid players in combat till they die; the ability to equip up to three purchasable accessories simultaneously, which can be leveled up after clearing each stage while equipped; and a gambling game called Psycho Hanafuda, where players can earn additional currency through timed button presses.

I have been gaming since I received the Sega Master System as a young child, which was the first console I ever owned (Yes, I am that old). The game that got me into RPGs was Final Fantasy VIII, a game that I still adore to this day. My favorite RPG of all time, however, is Shadow Hearts on the PS2. I do have many other interests outside of gaming as well, such as watching old-school wrestling, Reading books, 80s movies.... or anything 80s related as a matter of fact.
