Have you ever had a really bad day? A day that pissed you off so much, that you said “to hell with the world”? We’ve all been there. If you’re looking for a game that will perfectly satiate your angst and help you get through those frustrating moments, than check out Butcher by Transhuman Design. Known for their side scrolling multiplayer shooter Trench Run, Transhuman Design is no stranger to creating awesomely fun pixel games. In their latest release, Butcher, you play as a cyborg programmed to eliminate the last remnants of human life. Your sole purpose in this game is to murder as many of your “enemies” as you can, in the most inhumane ways possible. Take your pick from a variety of weapons ranging from chainsaws, to grenade launchers, and of course everyone’s favorite splatter gun THE SHOTGUN! Based on the trailer, players will have to fight their way through a ton of hellish levels, like underground hideouts, post-apocalyptic cities, and jungles to name a few. Visually, Butcher is bloodier than a Texas slaughter house. Though I haven’t gotten a chance to play it yet, Transhuman Design has been using the tag line “the easiest mode is hard”, to describe Butcher. This can only mean that a great deal of challenge awaits players entering into this pixelated gory nightmare. Call me crazy, but I can’t wait to get a taste of Butchers “ultra violence”.
