Beyond Sunset is a fast paced GZDoom powered cyberpunk FPS with RPG elements, where a street samurai awakens from a cybersleep and must fight her way through a powerful organisation to recover her memories.
Drawing inspiration from 90’s classics like DOOM and Duke Nukem 3D, Beyond Sunset is a stylish retro FPS with fast, fluid movement and RPG elements. In the game you take on the role of a skilled fighter who awakens from cybersleep inside a strange facility with no memory. It’s not long until guards start attacking you, but thankfully you have one ally – a mysterious stranger who contacts you via a phone. If you help her then she’ll help you get your memories back.
Being built in the GZDoom engine means that the gameplay in Beyond Sunset is fast-paced and very fluid, much like the classic DOOM games. There’s a lot more depth to the gameplay though, and your character is more agile, able to double jump, dash, slide and use a special melee attack. You can also chat to certain characters, complete little side-quests, level up your attributes and access files via computers. There are also some cleverly implemented puzzle elements, particularly when entering the game’s cyberspace.
It’s a very impressive game that takes the classic run and gun gameplay of DOOM and adds a lot of depth. The tactical combat, non-linear level design, intriguing narrative, puzzles and other RPG elements make for a much more cerebral experience, while still retaining the joy of slicing and blasting baddies! Highly recommended.
