The sacred lands have been corrupted by a powerful "Evil Force". Where many heroes have failed to defeat it, you must succeed. Amid Evil is a dark fantasy-themed retro first-person shooter that takes from and is considered a spiritual successor to Heretic and Hexen. Using an array of seven magical weapons, you'll traverse through seven non-linear episodes while fighting off enemies with clever AI that allows them to rush, flank or give chase to the player while allowing them to dodge or reflect attacks.
