What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to build the worlds of AMID EVIL with your help and also give you a chance to play the already finished and polished episodes early! All while we collect your valuable feedback to make the game even better.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Not too long! We'll be adding episodes to AMID EVIL every month or so until it's complete.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of AMID EVIL will contain SEVEN campaign episodes plus more Hordes of Evil (endless mode) arenas.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“AMID EVIL currently contains THREE very polished single player campaign episodes and Hordes of Evil (endless mode)”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?


How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“As always - we'll work directly with our players to make sure AMID EVIL is everything you expect it to be and everything we want it to be. Join the New Blood community at Discord.gg/NewBlood”

AMID Update #2

Warriors! We've just released the second update for AMID EVIL!

Changes include...
  • Weapon switching should now cycle properly (neat)
  • Weapon fire and impact sound improvements (BEEFIER)
  • Smooth camera movement on stairs (smoooth)
  • Trails for enemies falling into black holes (looks real cool)
  • New animation for enemies falling into black holes (also looks cool)
  • Enemies no longer get lost (nice)
  • Fixed not going to next episode after dying in gateway bug (whoops)
  • Can't get stuck inside lifts (yay)
  • New Load screen tips (useful!)
  • Cheat codex fixed (people still won't read it)
  • New cheat: AEXTREME - Actually makes weapons fire fast
  • New cheat: AEBABY - Soul mode toggle (infinite duration)
  • New cheat: AEMEMES - memes (memes)
  • Other misc bugfixes (memes)
But wait - we've also added the much requested...



So now those of you who thought AMID EVIL was a bit TOO COLOURFUL or just want to mess around and play AE in Black & White... you can!

There's also a whole bunch of fun cheats you can use to mess with the way AMID EVIL looks so... use em! (they're in the Codex)

(don't do this please)

In addition to all this is WARRIOR MODE which (much like DUSK's INTRUDER MODE) will have you start each level with ONLY the Axe of the Black Labyrinth. (Like a true warrior!)

AMID Update #1

Warriors! We've just released the first update for AMID EVIL!

Changes include...
  • New Planets for the Celestial Claw
  • Planets randomize a lot nicer now, you won't get the same planet twice.
  • Earth shows up less frequently, so you can commit genocide LESS.
  • Voltride casts Chain Lightning on overkill now. (also a cool Steely Dan song)
  • Frame cap slider can now go to UNLIMITED (power!!!!)
  • Weapon keys can be rebound.
  • Reset to default should actually do something.
  • Can change HUD message size in HUD options.
  • Mana numbers on the HUD gotta go fast now instead of slow
  • Asynchronous saving added so speedrunners won't get angry at me. (no hitches on saving).
  • Axe does 5 MORE DAMAGE, yay. (this will actually 1 shot many enemies)
  • Sword projectile does more damage on direct hit. Pass thru damage is the same.
  • Some enemies will enter their pain state (flinch) more often.
  • Achievements should activate when you get level awards.

Oh and the Axe of the Black Labyrinth now ACTUALLY works as a boat propeller
