Game release: “8Doors: Arum’s Afterlife Adventure” (PC)

Rootless Studio and NEOWIZ‘s metroidvania 2D action-platformer 8Doors: Arum’s Afterlife Adventure has more than just a long title to distinguish itself.

The afterlife seems to present all sorts of storytelling and gameplay opportunities for developers, and while there are some wonderfully touching examples like Spiritfarer that don’t use combat, this title really embraces it. It’s about Arum, a girl who is looking for her father’s soul in the afterlife, and the only way to do this is to pass the 8 Doors of Purgatory.

This is obviously no easy task, but one isn’t alone on the quest, with fugitive souls that need guidance and that can be used for solving puzzles and in general progress through levels. 21 imaginative bosses and 36 spectre enemies have to be defeated with an arsenal of 7 different types of weapons, while combo attacks and other ways also help. But it’s probably not the gameplay that is familiar enough for fans of the Metroidvania genre, but the story and art style that are inspired by Korean folktales which make this a unique proposition.

The game is out now on PC, with the soundtrack also being available as a separate purchase.
