Battle Arena Game GORSD Is Eldritch Splatoon

GORSD strikes me as a game in the same genre as Nidhogg. An arcade-style fighting game that not only takes the genre into an entirely new direction but also features bizarre mythology in the background. Created and published by developer Springloaded, GORSD is a fast-paced arena fighting game unlike any other.

Despite the incredible art style and setting, not much is known right now about the story of GORSD. As the Steam page reads, “Born from a womb-eye, you discover a world seething with challenges created by an unknown power. For what purpose were you created? Uncover the truth of the GORSD.” Perhaps the GORSD, much like the Nidhogg, is the large flying serpent worm we see in the trailer. But your guess is as good as mine.

GORST is both a couch battle mode as well as a campaign, where you face off against opponents in an angular arena. With movement limited to the lines on the ground, you zoom around trying to use your one bullet to finish off your enemies. Truthfully I can’t really describe the combat, you should just watch the trailer and see for yourself. GORSD also has an adventure mode where you roam around a JRPG style overworld, looking for different places to fight.

GORSD will be arriving on September 18th, and will be available on PC, PS4, X1, and Switch. For more information, follow them onTwitter by clicking here.
