THE DEVIL'S PATH UPDATE

The Devil's Path Update is now live! Full patch notes included below:

View the Trailer here!

Journey to the Catskill mountains, home to a meteor impact crater and the Devil's Path. After the events of Midnight Ultra's main story, you've biked your way across the country to unravel the last secrets guarded here...

This FREE update adds several sorely needed improvements, and a helping of new content!

  • Mac and Linux support - since we are relatively new to this, please let us know ASAP if you encounter any problems here, via the forums or by emailing us directly at support@forwardinstinct.com
  • Added New Ranged Weapon: Bolt Action Rifle - right click to zoom, this rifle does twice the damage of the Revolver!
  • Added New Melee Weapon: Occult Spell - this familiar spell will allow you to lob occult magic at enemies from a distance, even when you're out of ammo! It doesn't hurt much though...
  • Added New Campaign: Devil's Path - fight your way through three new levels, and a two-part boss battle.

  • Added 6 new enemies and variants:
  • Sniper: Fires a large, fast moving projectile from long distances, but doesn't fire often.
  • Yeti: Charges at the player at high speed out of the haze!
  • Shotgunner: A large, bulky man with a shotgun that fires 5 slow-moving, hazardous projectiles in a spread.
  • Thunderbird: A large bird that patrols the map through the skies, harassing you as you jump between crevices and mountain peaks.
  • ???: A weird, tentacled growth that spews energy balls at you - make some strange chirping noises...
  • Eyeball: An enormous, very angry and very evil eye with a hazardous gaze.


  • Added 10 New Themes - these are unlocked at start, so you can get to using them right away!
  • Reworked audio and animation for all weapons, as well as new hit audio.
  • Updated ammo consumption to accurately reflect ammo consumed by the player in the HUD - each shot consumes one ammo.
  • Added gore effects to all enemies
  • Added bullet tracer effects
  • Added bullet holes and bullet impacts
  • Updated player footstep audio
  • Reworked melee attacks - all melee attacks are now longer and wider range, better timed with attack animations, incur slight knockback on enemies, and can even knock them off the map to their deaths. All melee attacks are now also higher damage.
  • Fixed weapons firing a shot when unpausing the game
  • Added mouse sensitivity options
  • Added mouse X and Y axis inversion options
  • Added custom crosshair size options
  • Added audio mixing options for changing the volume of music, environment, player effects, and external sound effects.
  • Updated the credits to include the option to watch either set of credits - for the main game, or the DLC.

Reviews

“A gorgeous FPS that blurs a Hotline Miami palette with a grindhouse art style, a Quake-in-CGA aesthetic and a general vibe of lucid divebar nightmare, this was one that made me sit up and pay attention from the very first frame... The enemies are nasty in all the right ways, the weapons are straight out of some forgotten b-movie and the music sounds like that nightmare sex room out the back of the Roadhouse bar in Twin Peaks... Genuinely, this feels both like a lost early 90s treasure and a real 2017 original”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Here’s an FPS with an interesting, albeit garish, retro sensibility... I think we can all agree that using a pentagram and crucifix as a reticule is insanely good and worth the price alone.”
PC Gamer

“If you’re a fan of the surreal, yet hilarious, Machete films by Robert Rodriguez, you’ll love Midnight Ultra’s beautiful grindhouse art style. The mix of classic gunshot sound effects and western background music will tease out your inner cowboy.”

About This Game

In the American Southwest, a lone witch hunter travels across the desert, seeking to wipe out cultists of all sorts. Fight a variety of goons and ghouls, through small towns to dimension-spanning motels. Inspired by DOOM, Quake, and action games of yore, blast your way through a neon-dripped, pixelated nightmare in this high-speed, high-thrills FPS.

  • No recharging shields: you'll need to play smart or find healthpacks to stay alive. You're not invincible, after all.
  • Wild Weird West: features an acidic western soundtrack, composed just for Midnight Ultra!
  • Choose a melee weapon and a ranged weapon of your choice: mix and match, choose between chopping and blasting your enemies down to size.
  • Change how the game looks to fit your taste: unlockable color palettes change how Midnight Ultra looks entirely. BONUS: Halloween color palette unlocked at start
  • Double jump and dodge your enemies: your fast and nimble feet will let you leap across levels, over enemies heads, and between platforms.
  • Moody and surreal story: not everything is at it seems, and the physical trappings of reality aren't always guaranteed...
  • Short and sweet: 2-3 hours of gameplay content, for busy players looking for quick fun.
