Team Rock, the company that publishes Classic Rock Magazine, Prog Magazine, and Metal Hammer, are launching a games division, and their first game is based on that last magazine. Metal Hammer: Roadkill is coming out next week. They're calling it a combination between an endless runner and rhythm/action game. That means you'll use a giant metal hammer to slay some demonic beasts, all set to metal music. I mean, just the screenshot of the game screams metal as hell:

Metal Hammer Roadkill

Metal Hammer: Roadkill is going to feature artists from the Nuclear Blast label, including Suicide Silence, Epica, Sabaton, Hammerfall, Threshold, and Exodus. Team Rock Games is promising more content and music coming after launch. But hey, any game where you get to use an actual metal hammer to slay demons while listening to metal sounds intriguing enough to me. This one releases for free next week on Thursday, October 15th. I love me some metal, so I'll probably be downloading it. I'll leave it to commenters to debate whether my listening to Deafheaven right now counts as metal or not.

    With metal and bloodshed in said metal game, I say lets do it! Free to play? YES!

    • Team Rock Games

      We have metal. We have bloodshed. We have a COLOSSAL METAL HAMMER to smash with. Can't wait to let you play.

    Hope they add few Slipknot artists and Randy Blythe from Lamb Of God...

    • Team Rock Games

      We've got plans for MUCH MORE MUSIC. Talking to everyone we can. Watch this space. We love Slipknot (have you seen the Metal Hammer: Slipknot/Walking Dead cover?) and Lamb Of God, so watch this space!

    I made a thread on "most metal games" once

    • Team Rock Games

      Hope you update it once Roadkill comes out 😉

    If its Nuclear Blast supplying the music, they better throw in their ace Meshuggah.

    • Team Rock Games

      Not for launch, but we're working on it, trust us. We want more metal.

  • GhostMaker

    Nuclear Blast...That means Slayer. Definitely in my watch list.

    • Team Rock Games

      We couldn't possibly comment 😉 We're working on it. We'll keep you posted...

    • Team Rock Games

      Let them eat metal!

  • bainelaker

    Yes! Epic power metal is always my go-to whilst gaming. Bring on the Hammerfall! m/><m/

    • Team Rock Games

      We love Hammerfall. We may have good news for you... 😉

  • Team Rock Games

    Hey guys. Roadkill has just been updated with a brand new 'NORMAL' game mode, which means you can button mash your way to victory. We've updated the tutorial with a voiceover from the guys at Team Rock Radio (it's awesome, check it out...) and we've got new tracks from Hammerfall, Sabaton, Cradle Of Filth, Vader and Devil You Know. We've ripped out a HUGE number of bugs, improved the frame rate and generally fixed a hell of a lot of things. We'd love to know what you think. TRG...
