Publisher tinyBuild and developer Cradle Games have released Hellpoint: The Thespian Feast, a free and standalone sequel chapter to the upcoming action RPG Hellpoint, for PC via Steam. The Thespian Feast features a new protagonist and is set many years after Hellpoint.
“For those who’ve been following us for some time, this is the map from the very first demo we released four years ago,” said Cradle Games creative director Matt Boudreau in a perss release.
“In the final game, this is the sixth map if you follow the main path and I think players will find it interesting to see how much the game has progressed since then. The area is totally overrun by the Thespian demons, a race of flesh sculpting monsters and blood feasting degenerates. Compared to the 2016 demo, The Thespian Feast features completely new enemies and a new brutal boss fight. And don’t forget the split-screen co-op!”
Here is an overview of The Thespian Feast, via its Steam page:
The Thespian Feast is a free sequel-like chapter of Hellpoint, a dark and challenging action RPG where the line between science and occultism is unclear.
Many decades after the incident, someone finally manages to reach the forsaken space colony of Irid Novo. What the investigator finds, defies any form of reason, but a morbid obsession pushes him forward. If death doesn’t come first, insanity will surely have the better of him.

Congratulations! Only the most inquisitive minds end up here before their time comes. What is your purpose, Spawn? Have you ever asked the question? The ethers of truth are just out of reach, irrelevantly close. But proof is needless, judgement is within. The wicked, darkened, smothering demons that claw at the mind shall soon manifest in flesh and blood, for a feast of legends. Here’s a clue: those who never find superior revelations are never looking low enough.
Hellpoint is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam on April 16.
