Mike Mignola’s demonic hero comes to gaming
Hellboy is making his next jump into gaming with the upcoming Upstream Arcade developed and Good Shepherd published Hellboy Web of Wyrd. The action adventure game will utilize authentic comic styled visuals with a story written by Mignola to fit accurately with the character. Hellboy himself is voiced by Lance Reddick, who’s pretty awesome.
“Welcome to the Butterfly House, a mysterious manor of perverse angles and non-Euclidean geometry built by occultist Pasquale Deneveaux to open a gateway to the Wyrd, a vast, interdimensional web of wondrous and horrifying planes of existence beyond our world. When a B.P.R.D. agent vanishes inside the mansion, it’s up to Hellboy and his team of agents to uncover its forbidden secrets.
Journey into the deepest realms of the Wyrd, each hiding a unique investigation into the unknown. Battle powerful creatures in search of forgotten godforms and magnificent treasures, but beware: ancient evil festers within the Wyrd’s darkest reaches… evil that wants out.”
The melee action game doesn’t have a launch date yet, but it’s coming to everything.
