Blackpowder Games’ debut title Betrayer is now officially available. The game launched on Steam Early Access last August, and is set in an abandoned New World colony in 1604. Players explore the world trying to figure out what happened to the inhabitants while handling dangerous enemies. I previewed it last year and a lot has changed since that time, so expect an updated review in the near future! Additional details are below.

Seattle, WA (March 24, 2014) – Independent studio Blackpowder Games announces the release of its first-person action adventure game, Betrayer, the self-funded debut title from the creative team known for the acclaimed No One Lives Forever series and the original F.E.A.R.

Now available on Steam, Betrayer is an eerie, suspenseful action adventure in which players traverse a mysteriously abandoned New World colony in 1604, trying to piece together what happened to its inhabitants and survive the supernatural threats they encounter along the way.

“Betrayer is the kind of game we’ve been wanting to make ever since we shipped FEAR,” says the game’s designer and writer, Craig Hubbard. “You can explore large, open environments in search of clues and loot. You can tackle challenges aggressively or stealthily. You can outfit yourself with the equipment that best suits your play style. It’s a very player-driven experience.”

The game was initially released in alpha form as part of Steam Early Access in August of 2013, which allowed for months of additional development and refinement with input directly from the community. Many new features were added, including new game mechanics, UI improvements, and contrast and color sliders that let players customize the look of the game to their liking.

$19.99 / €18.99 / £14.99
