Save Your Office In Tom Vs. The Armies Of Hell
12:26 PM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Burgoon Entertainment recenly announced its first game, Tom vs. The Armies of Hell, and launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the indie action adventure title. In the game players take the role of Tom, a low level software engineer who must become a hero when his office complex is transported into Hell. Burgoon has also released an early demo to give players a chance to check out the concept.

Tom vs. The Armies of Hell is an indie action/adventure game with light RPG elements being developed for PC and Mac. The gameplay is fast paced and dynamic and the art is colorful and cartoonishly violent. The story follows Tom, a low level software engineer who is reluctantly thrust into the role of hero when the office complex he works in is transported into the depths of Hell. During the initial chaos, Tom is nearly killed by a demon, but ends up being revived no worse for wear, aside from the fact that his left arm is now missing, having been replaced with the arm of a demon.

The gameplay can be best described as Ratchet and Clank meets Bastion, whereas the story and world are best embodied by Office Space meets Army of Darkness. Throughout the game, Tom gains access to an arsenal of experimental weapons, as well as a variety of mysterious demonic powers, including the ability to transform into a nearly indestructible demon.

What really makes this game unique, however, is that it hasnít been put together by a large team of people. In fact, it hasnít been put together by a team at all. Tom vs. The Armies of Hell, or AoH for short, is the work of one dedicated developer named, Sean Burgoon. A veteran of both game development (Champions Online, Star Trek Online, Tombraider) and film visual fx, Sean left his job at Industrial Light and Magic (where he worked on Transformers 3, Battleship, Cloud Atlas, The Lone Ranger, and Pacific Rim) to make a game completely on his own, aside from the music, which is being provided by superstar indie game composer Danny Baranowsky.

Tom vs. The Armies of Hell is planned for release in fourth quarter 2014. Check out the pages below for more information about the game and the Kickstarter campaign.
