Writing can be a labyrinthine process. While writing the lore for Hunt: Showdown over the last few years of development, we've ended up with a number of pieces that, for one reason or another, won't make it into the game. The reasons that a piece of writing might need to be cut from the in-game library are multi-fold: maybe there was another piece that ultimately did the job better, maybe something was cut (our lore entries are all tied to specific game unlocks, so cut one, and you might find you have an orphaned piece of writing on your hand), or maybe we just ran out of space. Over the next few months we'd like to share a few of those cut pieces or lore with you: short stories that are peripheral to the lore's main threads, atmosphere pieces, and outtakes. We published the first in the series last week, and you can read it here. If you want to discuss, feel free to stop by the Hunt lore Discord channel to say hello.

It weren't my first job, and
I'll be damned if it were my last. As if damnin' were a thing to stop a man
killin' demons. That's math don't right add up. That kinda thing either gonna
make you holy or damn you right from the start. I reckon religion's a sham
anyway. They's always after your wallet. This God you speak of, I says, last
time I was in a church, he ain't gotta interest in my wallet, I say. His son
turned over them tables in the market, ain't he? Preacher give me the eye at
that, shook the collection plate and eyed me right righteous like. I figured my
welcome worn out. No bother replacin' it. Ain't nothing righteous in a God
wantsta rob me, no.
