“HARDCORE”
John Romero

“I’ve enjoyed many games in 2015, but few have put a smile on my face the way Butcher has.”
Kotaku

“I can think of lots of reasons why shotgunning your way through some 2D pixels might turn your day around, but whatever the cause I recommend Butcher.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

About This Game

The easiest mode is 'HARD'!

BUTCHER is a fast-paced 2D shooter and a blood-soaked love letter to the cult classics of the genre. As a cyborg programmed to eradicate the last remains of humanity, your sole purpose is to well... annihilate anything that moves.



So grab your weapon of choice (from chainsaw, through shotgun, to grenade launcher) and kill your way through underground hideouts, post-apocalyptic cities, jungles and more. And if you're feeling creative, there are plenty other ways of ending your enemies' misery - hooks, lava pits, saws... no death will ever be the same.

If kicking corpses into a lava pit and adorning walls with blood is your idea of a good time, BUTCHER is THE game for you.

Key features:

  • Ultra-violent uncompromising carnage in the spirit of Doom and Quake (chainsaw included)
  • Release your inner artist, paint the walls with (permanent) blood (up to 4 million pixels available to be painted per level)
  • Use the environment (saws, hooks, lava pits, animals and other) to brutally dispose of your enemies
  • Put your reflex and patience to the ultimate test
  • Choose from an array of weapons (featuring classics like chainsaw, railgun and the deadly grenade launcher)
  • Adorn more than 20 levels with the insides of your enemies
  • Soak in the dark atmosphere reinforced by a wicked, heavy soundtrack (while you kick corpses around)
  • Die painfully: melt in lava, become piranha food, get crushed by heavy doors... and more!
  • Absolutely no mercy for anyone!

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

This is a 2D, nostalgia driven throwback to 90's shooters that includes gore. A lot of gore... Body parts laying everywhere, blood dripping from ceiling... There's also use of strong language. But mostly gore. Very fun gore.
