‘Aeternum’ Invents New Ways to Kill You

Aeternum - Update

Yep, you totally got this.

Wasted Brilliance‘s enjoyable bullet hell (seriously, it is many, many bullets) Aeternum (review) has received some shiny new goodies, primarily the missing ‘5th Stage’ that closes off the first chapter of the game’s story. It brings a new boss fight against ‘Winter’, which has been guaranteed by creator Brooks Bishop to be one of the most challenging things you will ever do in this life. Lucky for you, the art (specifically, the bullets) has been color-adjusted to make it easier to see that wall of assured death coming towards you. Two new songs have also been added, rounding out an already great soundtrack.

The (potentially) bad news to all this otherwise good news? The price for the game on XBLIG is now $2.99. If you were a non-believer and shrugged off my earlier review, you will now literally pay for your insolence in dollars and (fictional) deaths.

For a full list of changes, check out WB’s rundown here. Otherwise, the update is live. Load up the game and take this new punishment like a man.

  1. A new stage? That’s awesome news!… except that I don’t stand a chance in hell of making it that far in the game 😦
    Still, it’s always great when developers continue to support and add value to their games. I’m looking forward to hearing the new music while I continue having fun dying endlessly while trying to get further in the game.

    1. Haha. Yep. I thought of adding that in the article, as I’ve yet to make it to the end as well, but left it out so I could save some face (hopefully no one reads the comments). Still awesome to have the content there IF I ever get to see it.
