Death Trash Is Horrifyingly Good

I’m going to be honest, I’m kind of squeamish when it comes to games. Not necessarily with horror or violence or anything, but with the general feeling of filthiness that is present in some post-apocalypses. It makes my skin crawl in a way that few other things do, and it means I miss out on some really cool games. However, one game I’ve pushed through that for is Death Trash, because it’s just so damn intriguing.

Death Trash is in Early Access at the moment, so it’s not the whole deal just yet, but you shouldn’t assume that means anything other than that there’s even more good stuff to come. I think the best description of the game comes from its steam page, which reads, “Death Trash features a world where cosmic horrors long for humanity but meet punks with shotguns.” It’s such a refreshing take on these ideas, and it makes for a game that constantly pushes what you’re expecting into a meat grinder.

It’s just a very good game, and because it’s an RPG, I don’t want to spoil anything, but you’ll always be happy with the things you can do here. It’s also got a wonderful visual style that masters the mix of old-school nostalgia and new techniques to make a world that feels really rather alive. If you’re the kind of person that only likes to play a game once then you should pop this on your wishlist, but if you’re a fan of replaying things to see how they evolve then you should probably jump into Death Trash now.
