Welcome to Hanwell

  • Release Date Aug 09, 2019
  • Publisher SteelArtsSoftware
  • Developer Steel Arts Software

Hanwell, once a safe haven from the horrors of the world, now a cesspit of anomalous scum. There is something deeply unsettling about Hanwell. Unexplained noises, something in the corner of your eye or laying just beyond the shadows create an atmosphere that will keep you constantly on edge.

Monsters roam the streets. They occasionally get into the once protected buildings. What you do with them is up to you, be resourceful and pick up whatever you can find in order to fight them. Or run.

And don’t look back.

Neverlast is a fast action first-person fantasy game. You are a reckless hero from a bygone era and your castle is under siege from the dark forces. The only way to stop the demon invasion is to destroy the three runic portals before it is too late.
