Seattle - April 9, 2020 - Today, developer Cradle Games and publisher tinyBuild have made the difficult decision to postpone the release of the upcoming dark Sci-fi RPG Hellpoint, previously scheduled for a PC & console launch in April 2020.

Now, the game is scheduled for release by the end of Q2 2020. Cradle Games are planning to use the extra development time to incorporate all the feedback they have received from players of the recently released free chapter, The Thespian Feast.

Cradle Games and tinyBuild have also released a new short teaser trailer, focused on the game’s 3D-printed protagonist, the artificial human known as The Spawn.

 

Matt Boudreau, Creative Director at Cradle Games:

“In light of the unprecedented events facing the world, we have been forced to postpone the launch of the game. We plan to use the additional development time not just for polishing, but also to address the feedback we’ve gathered and make Hellpoint an even better gaming experience for everybody! The feedback of the community had such enthusiasm and energy.”

About Hellpoint

Hellpoint is set in the aftermath of a massive quantum cataclysm called the Merge. You wake up on board the Irid Novo space station, a beacon of galactic cooperation and scientific exploration gone horribly wrong. What happens next will be solely determined by your choices.

Key Features:

 

  • Souls-like gameplay in a unique setting: Explore the derelict space station of Irid Novo and face bizarre enemies with a tight and unforgiving combat system.
  • Occult space story: Blending science and fantasy, the intensely atmospheric dark sci-fi setting will keep you searching for answers.
  • Dynamic World: The Quantic System acts as a dungeon master, slightly transforming the game world every time you die and triggering events as the station revolves around the black hole. 
  • Jump-in co-op and PvP multiplayer: Ask a friend to press Start to join a couch co-op session or call for assistance online. Hellpoint offers a full, uninterrupted co-op story with shared loot drops.
