The Game Kitchen and Team17 have released a free demo for their upcoming 2D Souls-like action platformer, Blasphemous. The game releases on September 10th and you can download its demo right now from Steam.
Blasphemous is a punishing action-platformer that combines the fast-paced, skilled combat of a hack-n-slash game with a deep and evocative narrative core. The game will focus on exploration and it will feature non-linear levels.
In Blasphemous, players will be able to eplore a nightmarish world of twisted religion and discover its many secrets. Players can use devastating combos and brutal executions to smite the hordes of grotesque monsters and titanic bosses. Players can also locate and equip relics, rosary beads and prayers that call on the powers of the heavens to aid them.
Basically, think of Blasphemous as a Souls-like 2D action platformer.
Moreover, Blasphemous looks retro-cool and gory. Players will use Mea Culpa; a sword born from guilt itself, to slaughter their foes. As they progress, players can acquire devastating new combos and special moves. Furthermore, players can unleash their wrath and relish in the gory dismemberment of their adversaries – all in beautifully rendered, pixel-perfect execution animations.
Sounds cool, right? So go ahead and download the demo from here.
