Tom vs. The Armies of Hell Available Now on Steam

Tom vs. The Armies of Hell, a story-driven isometric shooter, is now available on Steam for $12,99. You can play as an software engineer by trade, demon hunter by fate, called Tom and turn souls into demon-splattering weapons in this hilarious romp through Hell. In Tom vs. The Armies of Hell, players shoot demons in the face through more than six levels filled with a full cadre of demonic entities – including challenging minions and hair-raising boss fights.

Check out the story and gameplay trailers of Tom vs. The Armies of Hell, showcasing the story for the game and some gameplay footage:

“Turn the souls of the fallen into specialized ammo, transforming Tom’s gun into a rapid-fire blaster, flamethrower, shotgun, and more. Close range combat? Use Tom’s demon arm to smash enemies to a bloody pulp. Finally, if you’re caught between lava and sharp teeth, it’s time to (temporarily) transform Tom into a demon himself!

“Tom is just like any normal software engineer,” says Sean Burgoon, founder of Darkmire Entertainment. “He’s stuck at a tedious 9-to-5 job (which somehow doesn’t let out till 8), and it’s definitely sapping his will to live. So when Tom thinks to himself, ‘Anything has to be better than this,’ he does so confidently… and wrongly. Still, while being sucked into a twisted hellscape filled with soul-devouring demons might not be a strict improvement, using an experimental weapon system to blast those demons into demon-colored confetti is at least a break from the corporate drudgery. It’s all about finding that silver, blood-stained lining.”

Backstory

At tech conglomerate Questionable Technologies, Tom was a low-level software engineer – his days filled with unrewarding tedium, his nights filled with unpaid overtime. (Tom was truly living the American Dream.) One day, a routine R&D experiment in a secret research lab beneath Tom’s office opened a portal to Hell. (Accidents never open a portal to Tahiti, or even one of the Dakotas. Nope. Always Hell.) Anyway, with his office plummeting through the void between Hell and Earth – and demons rampaging all around him – Tom did what any reasonable person would do: He ran and cowered in the men’s room, where he was subsequently mauled by a demon. Luckily for Tom (using “luckily” loosely here), he was saved-slash-turned into a demon hybrid by a purple imp named Beezle. Now, with the aid of his newly acquired demon powers and an experimental gun that weaponizes freshly released souls, Tom must face off against countless hordes of demonic enemies – or find himself stranded in Hell for all eternity.”
