MANCHESTER 2281, UK: The dystopian shooter storyworld of indie game Beyond Flesh and Blood is to undergo a quaint, Christmas transformation. Even the city’s residents [read: rebels, mechs, troopers] have taken to wearing Santa hats.
Beyond Flesh and Blood is a 3PS & gory mech game set in Manchester, UK, aiming for release on PC and console.
THE SNOWBALLS ARE DEADLY! THE CANDY CANES ARE WAY TOO BIG! THE PRESENTS EXPLODE IN YOUR FACE! Christmas just isn’t festive unless you can run around in cybernetic android suits while smashing the absolute s*** out of your enemies. Right?

There are a few Christmas themed videos released for the game’s ‘5 Days of Fleshmas’ from Saturday 20th to 25th December.
Pixelbomb Games must have created the new CHRISTMAS DEMO MODE for Beyond Flesh and Blood as an outlet for frustrated Christmas-shopper catharsis… But, understandably, the co-lead developers have rather varying views on this demo as it probably seems a bit too commercial…!
Lee Blacklock, co-lead developer, said: “My favourite parts are the physics applied to the santa hat, and the fiery explosions which have been replaced with snowflakes.”
Philip Muwanga, co-lead developer said: “Bah, humbug.”
Pixelbomb Games recently created an Instagram account, which you can follow here – and I hear the team would love it if you could give it a follow 😉
