8DAYS is now available on Steam! (Video)

Are you a fan of Hotline Miami and Retro City Rampage? Then 8DAYS — launching on Steam — might be right up your alley 🙂

Published by BadLand Games and developed by Spanish studio Santa Clara Games, 8DAYS has players fight in the name of of G.O.D. Inc. (Gold, Oil, and Diamonds) through more than five chapters of non-stop 8-bit action.

8DAYS was awarded Best Gameplay at Granada Gaming Festival 2015 and nominated for the AzPlay International Festival of Independent Games 2015. In fact, the game has already seen marked success after the release of the first “mission” on the Humble Store.

In 8DAYS, players unravel closely guarded secrets while keeping the peace — on their own or with the help of a friend in local co-op. The game also features an original soundtrack; the title song, “Wildlands,” sets the scene before players go into battle:

G.O.D. Inc. is the world leader in the Private Military Company (PMC) sector — bringing peace to those conflict areas where its clients have strategic interests. In 8DAYS, players take on the role of Lola “Wasp” Cruz and Mike “Ghost” Doe — two of G.O.D.’s expendable mercenaries. G.O.D. and 8DAYS Magazine are modern instruments used to keep the masses under control. G.O.D. is primarily a peacekeeping force, and the 8DAYS Magazine keeps public opinion in line.
