    Blasphemous: Dark and brutal 2D non linear platformer



    Vanquish bloodthirsty creatures, the devotees of a twisted religion. Hand-crafted pixel art action game by the makers of The Last Door.

    Story

    Set in the savage land of Orthodoxia, a place where religion is of the utmost importance in the eyes of the populace, superstition runs amok, and churches outnumber people two to one. You will find yourself in this hellish territory in the wake of the Age of Corruption.

    ...Riddled with frustration at their insufficient devotion, The High Pontiff heaved his golden throne with and turned the entire throne back. Years passed and all of a sudden it appeared something was beginning to change in the state of the High Pontiff. Dried out, dying branches began to emerge from the ends of his fingers and slowly started growing out from all over his pallid, immobile body. The High Pontiff was transformed into a great, withered and barren tree and began to burn for ninety days and ninety nights...

    ...Once the tree had been entirely consumed by the flames, a huge mountain of ash stood in its place, topped by the infamous turned throne, unoccupied and unguarded. The remaining church leadership scrambled upwards to reach the top and assume the throne. But the mountain begin to shift beneath their feet and before long the mountain of ash had swallowed up each and every soul who had been present in the Cathedral. From the ashes rose those poor unfortunate souls who had been swallowed up, transformed into horrible, deformed and bloodthirsty beasts, wildly aggressive and violent in nature, but with their faith intact...



    Seriously the game looks fucking AWESOME and for those interest, there's MUCH more info about the the setting, its game and artistic inspirations(Dark Souls, Ghosts and Goblins, Castlevania for the former and Francisco Goya and their home city of Seville, Spain for the latter) and it's player character,

    Keeping my eye out on this game, seems like a perfect match for the Switch for on the TV and on the go. I thought Salt and Sanctuary was really well done, and this looks to fall right in line with that while upping the disturbing factor.

    My only reservation is that in the clip they seem to recycle a lot of the same enemies. Hopefully as we learn more they show a lot more variety in enemies.

    They've said there are more on the way and these are just some of the earlier ones.

    The musical choice for that trailer could not have been more appropriate.

    Another game that looks similar to this is Dead Cells. It looks amazing hopefully it gets a Ps4/xbone release.

    Anyone here played it?

    First I've heard of it, and it looks pretty bad ass. I love these Metroidvania style games. Another one I'm keeping an eye out for is Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.

    I will never again invest in a kickstarter or early access game.
