Dark fantasy stories are quite popular in indie games, but few developers look at classic poems when doing so. Inspired by authors like John Milton (who is best known for the epic Paradise Lost), this game presents a world that has already become hell or at least one in which humanity is almost extinct. Only one hero is able to fight back a demonic invasion: a demon himself.
Character customization is a mainstay in the RPG genre, so it obviously makes a return, offering a chance to have different playthroughs depending on the powers one is given at the beginning. Travelling through the dark world and fighting all sorts of evil monsters in first-person turn-based combat isn’t surprising, either. But the comic book-like presentation certainly makes for an immersive experience for sure.
The game is out now on PC with a 20% launch discount that lasts until tomorrow, May 2, 2022, at 1 PM UTC.
