What do you get when you combine the retro visual style of the original Street Fighter games with the violence of Mortal Kombat? Mother Russia Bleeds looks like a hyper violent mashup of the two. It’s just smashed its way onto Steam, and by the looks of it, it could be one of the most brutal games of 2016.
The ultraviolet brawler comes from French developer Le Cartel Studio and sees you play as imprisoned warriors who decide to deliver justice on their tormentors by pounding the utter shit out of them with their fists. And there’s also mutant freaks and BDSM-loving sex club workers lining up to feel the punch of your knuckles, because why not?
From the Press Release:
Mother Russia Bleeds is an ultra-violent co-op brawler overflowing with an unmistakable style and unforgettably brutal action for up to four players at once. Set in an alternate U.S.S.R, the story centers on a desperate crew of imprisoned street fighters that must overcome an oppressive criminal authority and forced drug addictions through any means necessary. Battle solo or alongside friends in an exceptional story mode campaign or harden your resolve in the savage Survival Mode.
Merciless Struggle: Pull yourself up from the cold, hard ground to punch, claw, and stab your way through the hardened ghettos, violent prisons, grim laboratories, and decadent clubs.
Powerful Narcotics: Embrace your crippling addiction with a quick injection to crush skulls, snap necks, and tear flesh from bone in a drug-fueled maniacal rage. Find your next fix flowing through the veins of your fallen foes and jam your needle into their convulsing bodies to fill your beloved syringe.
Local Co-Op: Crack your knuckles and select a combatant to go it alone or rumble alongside friends in an ultraviolent co-op ruckus with up to four players.
