Winner of Northern Ireland Screen and National Lottery's Assembler Programme, Before The Blood is currently in production with a release date May 2018 with publisher Green Man Gaming.
Before the Blood is an intense urban brawler in which you punch, kick and rinse rival gangs on your way to Blackspoint as you journey to uncover the truth.
With easy-to-perform yet difficult-to-master combo moves, you play as Keli; a tough-talking, hard-as-nails teen who sets in motion a dark, sinister narrative as she helps her friend Mickey find the truth about his brother’s supposed suicide. Scrap on your own or with a friend as you take on the networks of runners, dealers and elders on your way to the tower block where Mickey’s brother died.
Respecting the ends: Find out who to fight and how to fight them. Are they are hard hitters who take you down, or are they carrying a weapon? With each fight you learn more moves, and the more you know the more respect you’ll have round the ends – but remember that your enemy will go to extreme lengths to protect the truth.
Use your phone, pick your fight: Use your phone to see your location and where the pealers are, stay connected with your crew and get info on who is where in your current location and what weapons they’ve got.
Local co-op: Get blood on your knuckles and get to Blackspoint on your own or let one of your crew play as Mickey to help fight your way through the different ends.
RELEASE DATE: MAY 2018
