STRAFE, an over-the-top first-person shooter that is a homage to 90’s shooters, releases today for Windows PC, Mac, and PlayStation 4. Physical copies for PlayStation 4 are limited, but it also comes with a free bonus code for Steam.

Independent developer Pixel Titans describes STRAFE:

As a Scrapper on an impossibly dangerous mission at the edge of the galaxy, you only have one life to navigate all the nightmarish terrains of STRAFE®. When you die, nothing will ever be the same again. STRAFE® is a roguelike first-person shooter pushing the limits of computer-generated photorealism and hardcore sci-fi action into unimaginable territory. With virtually no load times and infinite replayability, just choose your gun and be instantly blown away by face melting speed, endlessly challenging levels, and the upcoming modes like MURDERZONE, SPEEDZONE, and STRAFEZONE.

“STRAFE® changes everything you’ve ever known or will know about STRAFE®,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “It’s the next generation of the last generation and we’re not all that sure gamers will be able to handle that sort of power.”

A special physical PC version was available for preorder that included a Steam key, 3.5 inch floppy disc, soundtrack on cassette, fashionable lapel pins, “hardcore” stickers, indoor sunglasses, and 10 collectible pogs, but it has since sold out. However, it is still possible to order the game’s soundtrack on vinyl, special or standard edition. There’s also vinyl plus game combos.
