Every time someone plays a new game, the dungeons will be procedurally re-generated by the AI from scratch, making every playthrough unique and fresh.

Metal: Hellsinger is an upcoming indie game that offers a cross between a first-person shooter and a rhythm-based game. It’s a game that is jam-packed with powerful weapons, demonic creatures, and metal music.

The title is a unique rhythm-based FPS where the more intense the metal music that the player generates, the more destruction follows. The ultimate goal of Metal: Hellsinger is to defeat the invading demonic horde through a wide range of crunchy heavy metal beats and devastating weapons. The game features fantastic art, and the idea of slaying demons using heavy metal music sounds quite entertaining.
