    I wasn't aware that Blasphemous was so successful as to get its own ripoffs. And if the demo is any indicator, this game has the worst writing I've ever seen from an English-speaking developer. If I didn't know better, I'd have assumed it was written by japs and translated with cheap highschooler labour. You'd expect a bunch of Brits to capitalize properly at least, but I suppose that's what modernity does to people.

    On the plus side, the art does look great (though I dislike the overuse of dark blue colors) and combat seems more interesting than Blasphemous at least, not that it's much of an achievement.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they were aiming for intentionally bizarre writing. As in "Let's give this the same atmosphere as one of them Japanese games by writing like we were Asians who just discovered English yesterday."

    25 EUR for "late backers", implying it might cost even more when it launches on Steam.

    Someone has a lot of faith (no horrible pun intended) in their own game...

    Looks highly derivative as most modern Metroidvanias seem to be, but that certainly doesn't mean bad. All I can ask for is a worthwhile game in these times.
