Indie developer Strange Scaffold has released a new seven-minute gameplay video of its upcoming third-person shooter “El Paso, Elsewhere.” The video shows off the game’s Max Payne-like gun combat and its supernatural enemies, as well as flashy Bullet Time and shootdodge mechanics.

Watch the new El Paso, Elsewhere gameplay video below:

El Paso, Elsewhere hearkens back to the neo-noir-inspired third-person shooter gameplay pioneered by the first two Max Payne titles in the early 2000’s. The game deals with many of the same themes as Max Payne in its explorations of psychosis and guilt-incited violence, featuring the troubled protagonist James Savage in his quest to stop his former lover’s evil plans within a twisted, reality-defying motel. From the game’s Steam page:

El Paso, Elsewhere is a supernatural neo-noir third-person shooter. Hunt werewolves, fallen angels, and other damned creatures in a vivid slow motion love letter to action classics. Fight your way through a reality-shifting motel, floor by bloody floor. Save the victims of Draculae, lord of the vampires. Destroy the villain you loved–even if it means dying yourself.

Somewhere in El Paso, Texas, a three-story motel gained another 46 stories… all below ground.
So, yeah.
This is going to get loud.


  • Original hip-hop soundtrack.
  • Molotov cocktails filled with holy blue flame.
  • A fully-voiced neo-noir story campaign set in a reality-shifting motel full of monsters.
  • Hordes of destructible physics objects; for shooting.
  • More slow-motion dives than you would think it is humanly possible to fit into a single video game.

Strange Scaffold is aiming to release El Paso, Elsewhere on PC, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One this fall. Stay tuned here at MP1st for all upcoming news and updates about the game.
