FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SEATTLE, WA - February 21, 2020 - Announcing 'Kur' from Really Ragdoll Studios and The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild for PC

The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild and Really Ragdoll Studios will release 'Kur,' a retro FPS filled with dark humor on PC toward the end of this year.  With the ability to kick absolutely everything, players will find both amusement and gunless gameplay possibilities throughout their entire experience.

As a mercenary hired by The Corporation, you will uncover horrible experiments gone wrong and an AI obsessed with becoming human.  What makes an entity human, anyway?  For some enemies, wearing the remains of their victims suits their needs just fine.

In addition to retro graphics and gameplay inspired by industry giants such as Resident Evil, 'Kur' offers a refreshing and hilarious playstyle in a genre that just might take itself too seriously.

Coming to PC late in 2020

'Kur' will be playable at PAX East at booth 27077 in the Expo Hall
