Golden Light's new 'Meat Royale' is basically Silent Hill deathmatch in David Lynch's toilet

Golden Light was already one of my favorite new games of 2020, a horror roguelike where shape-shifting meat monsters harass you in a grimy, surreal universe. Learn more about the base game in my impressions from last year, but skim the Steam page too. It’s received a ton of updates since then, with new biomes, NPCs, balance changes, and even a co-op mode. Neato. 

But the real meat (sorry) of the latest update is Meat Royale, a 10-player spin on Golden Light’s disorienting first-person combat. You and nine other players spawn into a random level, meat monsters included, and need to do the battle royale thing, collecting gear and weapons to take out the other players.
