Eric Ruth Presents “Corril Slayer”, an Original Horror Game for the PC

February 29, 2012, Baltimore, Md. -- Pure Bang Games is excited to announce the release of Corril Slayer, a downloadable PC game created by demake expert and Team Fortress Arcade creator Eric Ruth. Corril Slayer is a 2D platformer video game inspired by classic retro action games such as Mega Man and Castlevania.  

A botched lobotomy leaves Sam Asherton with the ability to see ghosts and he soon realizes that not all of the ghosts are friendly. Armed with dual Magnums, players take control of Sam as he adventures through creepy landscapes, battles the undead, and hunts down the Internet's most infamous monsters.

Set in a mysterious and haunting world crafted by expert pixel artist and game designer, Eric Ruth, Corril Slayer's moody and creepy scenes turn even darker and more eerie with an imaginative soundtrack from the renowned horror music outfit, Midnight Syndicate.  Players can switch between the real world and the ghost world to uncover power-ups and clues to defeat bosses such as the mysterious Slender Man, a creature who stalks children.  Corril Slayer takes players back to the 8-bit golden age of fun and excitement.

“I've always wanted to construct a game with elements of action and horror,” said Eric Ruth.  “Corrili Estu Ex Mortis means 'The walking, evil dead.'  So when Sam ventures off to cleanse the world of the dark creatures that haunt us, he becomes the Corril Slayer.”

Corril Slayer is currently available for download for $2.99 at http://www.corrilslayer.com.
