Hellraid Prequel Tells of "Edyn's Escape"

Can you lead Brother Edyn to safety in this "Choose Your Own Adventure" style prequel to Deep Silver's Hellraid?

Two weeks prior to the events of Hellraid, Brother Edyn awoke to find his monastery overrun by monsters of various sorts. This, of course, was a bit of a problem. They seemed bent on doing him harm, and he had foolishly left his weaponry in another room. What's a brother from another fantasy realm to do?

Get the sword, obviously - or the battle axe, if that's more your speed - and hightail it out of Dodge. (Some friendly advice: not the battle axe.) Such is the simple goal of "Edyn's Escape," a multi-pronged YouTube teaser modeled after the "Choose Your Own Adventures" of old that sets the table for Hellraid. At each step you'll be presented with a choice: Choose correctly and you'll move on, but choose poorly and you're a zombie buffet.

The random and very arbitrary nature of the game may be frustrating, but a do-over is as close as a click of the "back" button, so if you find your face being chewed on in a manner that leaves you uncomfortable, take a step back and try it again. A reward waits for those who successfully make it to the end, and although I won't spoil it, I will tell you this: Don't go left!


The reward doesn't even show up for me. After all those decisions I made and everything :(

The reward isn't much, to be honest, just

Just type in the URL when you finish it.

The game looks fairly attractive, and I'm probably going to get it when it comes out, reminds me a little of Amnesia mixed with the good parts of Dead Island.
Although this prequel thingy might've been more fun if Youtube hadn't devolved into a buggy bitch over the years.

for those too lazy to take the maze


rather not worth the time put in, you just get some music

I actually like the choose your own adventure feel that this trailer does. It did take several tries, but I made it to the end in under six.(stupid skeletons) The game itself looks simple enough, but a chance to play a first person dungeon crawl is why I brought Grimlock long ago. Says multi-player so might be looking at a Borderlands version. Which can be good and bad depending on who you play with.

I really hope this is good, but...I kinda have a bad feeling about it.

I had to reload the page to get the prize, but it worked. And I liked it. :)

No I cannot help brother Edyn his game is too particular and I cant be asked with it.

I just want to say that I have never heard of this game before but I am honoured that they decided to name it after me.

OT: Also, yeah, the game looks pretty sweet.

I give you... HELLRAID!



Not a great name, but my dear hope is that it can combine an Underworld/Arx-style dungeon crawl with Dark Messiah combat. Oh, I would be such a happy boy!
