What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to use the Early Access in order to engage the community and get player feedback that will help us shape the game to its best possible form. We are planning to launch several content updates during the Early Access period and since we are a small team of developers, we want to hear as much feedback from our players as we can.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our goal is to release the final version of the game in early 2024. This should give us the time we need to add all the planned content, polish the game and make changes to our design based on player feedback. In case we need more time, we will inform everyone in advance.”

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

“We are planning to add content regularly to the game, which will at the start of Early Access have 5 levels, growing this to 11 by full release. We also plan to double the initial number of weapons, add more enemies and bosses and, perhaps most importantly, with the full release we are planning to introduce multiplayer features to the game - both coop and PvP.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The initial release contains 5 levels of the singleplayer campaign, providing cca. 4-5 hours of gameplay. Players will be able to meet 10 types of enemies (out of the planned 16) and 2 bosses and use 12 weapons out of the 24 planned in total.”

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

“The price during the Early Access will be somewhat lower in order to give the early players a chance to contribute to the development and reap the benefits of being early adopters. We are planning to increase the price once as we get close to the full release of the game. We will be informing everyone through the Steam news, Steam Discussion forums and our social media channels before any price change that might occur, so everyone can plan ahead.”

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

“We are planning to do that mainly through our Steam forum and our Discord server. We encourage all players to share their thoughts about the game, whether positive or negative. We would like to know as much about their experience with the game and their suggestions for improving it and making it bigger and better - how they feel about the level design, gameplay elements, sound, and anything they consider important.”

About This Game

HYPERVIOLENT is a brutal, old-school FPS in the style of classic sprite-based 3D games from the 1990s. After responding to a distress signal from Commodus Asteroid 27-C, a remote mining colony, you find yourself in the midst of an outbreak of violence among its inhabitants. You must unravel the secrets of the asteroid and the evil hidden deep within its mines as you seek an answer to the madness within its complex corridors.

Obliterate your foes with an extensive array of guns and melee weapons that can be dual-wielded in nearly endless combinations, and take the VIOLENCE to the next level. You are far from an invincible action hero however - manage your resources carefully, and be ever vigilant, for enemies can ambush you when you least expect it.


  • Gorgeous 3D / Pixel Hybrid
    Explore the rich environments of the I.E.C. Commodus station and paint them with viscera, rendered in a combination of classic low-poly 3D, and hand-crafted 1990s pixel art aesthetic.
  • Intense horror atmosphere
    Feel the dread of exploring the dark, claustrophobic corridors of an asteroid mine, stranded deep in space. Nobody can help you, nobody can save you, nobody can hear you scream.
  • Brutal combat
    Dual-wield more than 20 unique ranged and melee weapons to obliterate insane and monstrous enemies, but don’t get cocky - manage your resources, you don’t want to run out of ammo in a bossfight…
  • RPG / FPS mechanics
    Manage your inventory, upgrade weapons, interact with NPCs, & peruse through computer data logs to further your mission in this exciting, authentically nostalgic experience.
  • Use the environment to your advantage
    Utilize switches, computer terminals, keycards & other control mechanisms to navigate the labyrinthian station and manipulate your environment.
