You play as Heather Quinn, a programmer at a medical company called Neurosphere. Plot happens and an accident sees her warped into the videogame world of Starfire, a Quake-like shooter from the ’90s where cyborgs are trying to erase humanity from existence.

Quinn spawns as a grunt in the cyborg army, but events soon see her hopping between other videogame worlds, from World War 2 shooters to fantasy RPGs – and she can take the weapons she finds with her.

I’ve always wanted to shoot a fairy with an M1 Carbine.

If like me you’ve often wondered what it would be like to stroll through lush, retro fantasy lands while killing everything with a massive, sci-fi rocket launcher, Bedlam has finally launched on Steam.
