Strafe gameplay recalls the 1990s golden age of FPS games

Strafe Banned Commercial

Looking for some retro Quake-style first person shooting action?

Following a gratuitously blood-splattered intro trailer, Pixel Titans, the team behind Kickstarter hopeful Strafe has released a full 10 minutes of gameplay footage to help coax in your pledges.

Watching it immediately takes you back to the days when titles the likes of Quake and Unreal ruled the FPS space. A time when permadeath, health pick-ups, over-the-top explosive gore and galloping around at 900 miles an hour were the norm.

Pixel Titans are looking for $185,096 in crowd-funding with (at the time of writing) just over $63K of that pledged on Kickstarter

The game which is planned for PC and Mac is described by the developers as "the fastest, bloodiest, deadliest, most adjective-abusing, action-packed first-person shooter of 1996" (a year apparently echoed in the additional 96 cents Pixel Titans are looking for).
