Postmortem Studios has acquired the rights to update and re-release Underground Games’ 1990 game of splatterpunk modern horror ‘Blood!’ by Norley Tucker and Stephen Osborn, with illustrations by Paul Campion.
Blood! Was a visceral and gratuitous horror game taking many of its cues from the horror films and horror novels of the time. This is a game of slashers, of gnawing zombies and most of all a game of its namesake – Blood!
The intention is to update the system somewhat while retaining the core that made Blood! great, to expand on the creatures and opponents and to provide more mini-scenarios in which players can be suitably slaughtered as well as expanding the weapon list to include modern innovations such as DVD players and flat-screen monitors.
Release date is tentatively scheduled for Summer/Autumn 2006.
In the meantime we are seeking your impressions of the old game. What worked for you and what didn’t? What are some of your favourite memories of playing Blood!?
Further information will be made available on gaming forums or at the Postmortem Studios website as it becomes available.
‘45’s release is imminent! Start your engines for the Psychobilly Retropocalypse. It’s almost here!
