    Graphics look great but I have this feeling that the game will be slower and more Dark Souls inspired than a proper Metroidvania. Especially when seeing those finishing moves and the heavy swings.

    Looks dope. looks great and very atmospheric and there's even a fitting Burzum-esque soundtrack in the trailer.

    Regular mobs with hp bloat. These cretins don't understand why Dark Souls worked.

    HP bloat? If it isn't dying in one or two hits in that video it looks like it can be killed that way with a counter.

    The style and the theme are both 10/10. Well done. Hopefully the game won't be shit.

    ...what did you say?

    Its a christian thing from Spain https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capirote
    Show Spoiler
    Its also where the KKK, a christian organization, got their pyramid hats from.


    This game is looking good, hopefully all the resident catholic shitposters won't anathema it and destroy any conversation about it. Added to watch list.

    It looks edgy indeed, but it fits with the theme I suppose. Not my cup of tea, but might be worth acquiring in the future, I guess. Too bad there's an abundance of Dark Souls and Castlevania clones.
