A Glimpse Into the Past From the Future

100% of Sales to Bend, Oregon Community Assistance
100% of net proceeds (i.e. all money received from Steam payout) from Hellfire 1988 will be donated to the Bend Fire Community Assistance Program! The Bend Fire Community Assistance Program is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization run entirely by members of the Bend Oregon Fire Department:

"Often while firefighters are responding to emergencies, additional needs are noticed in conjunction with the emergency the person called for. These may be in the form of financial hardship and the inability to pay a bill, fill a car with fuel, clothe a child, or provide groceries for their family. The Community Assistance Program seeks to bridge these gaps with funds that are raised through donations by the community. As firefighters, we believe we have a special and unique opportunity to intervene in someone’s life during their most difficult time to help lessen the burden of financial stress. We are so grateful for the ability to help our community out in this way."

MATURE CONTENT DESCRIPTION
The developers describe the content like this:

THIS GAME IS NOT FOR YOUNG KIDS!
This game includes mature dialogue about potentially upsetting topics including drug and alcohol use, crime, poverty, infidelity, prejudice, and Satanism. Foul language is frequently encountered and there is mild sexual innuendo.


Happy Gaming!

Thank you Ana!

"A thrilling hard rock soundtrack". Yes, we heard that in the trailer. Not exactly my favorite soundtrack for an adventure game, but it seems to be congruent with the story. I'd like to see more actual gameplay before I decide if I'm interested in this game or not.
