Redfall - The Cryptid Hunter | Devinder Hero Gameplay Trailer


Devinder “Dev” Crousley is one of the playable characters in Redfall.

Dev has traveled the world trying to prove the existence of the weird and supernatural. An author, brilliant inventor and self-styled “cryptid-hunter,” Dev has found some measure of internet fame through his expeditions and learnings. He was in Redfall to promote his latest book when the vampires cut the island off from the outside world, leaving him stranded.

Now he’s going to have to put all of his expertise to the test as he fights to survive and escape Redfall. Thankfully, his studies have granted him the knowledge he needs to craft his own anti-vampire weaponry. And if he just so happens to make it off the island with proof that his gadgets work and vampires are real… well, that’s just a nice bonus.
