Outer Brain Studios wants to take you to a dark, mysterious world where your only hope for survival is your will to avoid harm and proficient use of a grappling hook. Scum Lord is a top-down action game with a sinister edge.

In order to avoid being killed by angry purple behemoths (move over, Grimace) you'll need to swing the more passive creatures into them using the aforementioned grappling hook. Killing them all will allow you to move to the next room.

Outer Brain is promising several bosses in the final release. The game is up on Kickstarter now. The full version is going to be playable through your browser on Windows, Mac and Linux in June, while a demo is available right now.
