Reaping souls of the dead and punching a clock might get monotonous but it's honest work for a Crow. The job gets lively when your assigned soul is stolen and you must track down a desperate thief to a realm untouched by death - where creatures grow far past their expiry.

Talon Sharp Combat: Utilize melee weapons, arrows and magic to overcome a fantastic array of beasts and demigods. Mistakes are punished and victory is rewarded. Gain an edge by customizing your character stats and mastering the abilities and upgrades you obtain.
A Beautifully Bleak World: Venture beyond the Doors and explore a land full of twisted inhabitants and countless secrets, bringing hope to the weird and wonderful characters you’ll meet along the way.
A Dark Mystery to Unravel: Track down and defeat colossal tyrants with stories and motivations of their own. Experience a somber yet darkly comedic tale, uncovering the truths behind the flow of souls, the role of the Crows and the origin of the Doors.

15% off on the Microsoft Store until launch, so I'll probably wait for reviews before considering buying it at that discount. Looks really good though!

Devolver makes great smaller titles and this looks to continue that trend. It's too bad they seem to avoid PlayStation recently. Will have to add it to my steam wishlist for a holiday sale at some point, no way I'm buying it for full price or even 15% off if I can't play it on my tv.

Pretty sure there was a Playstation exclusive on the show, just can't recall the name of it right now.

Yo when I saw this game it instantly gave me flashbacks of so many NES Games me and my big brother played when I was a little kid and he used to let me get my hands on the 2nd controller and ruin his gaming :messenger_tears_of_joy:

I'm definitely excited about this game, and super excited about Deaths Door. Devolver been giving us heat for a long time now. The games they get behind almost ALWAYS have some of the best music too

Anyone who hasn't played Katana Zero is insane at this point in my opinion. One of my fave games of the past few years

I wonder if it can really play better than Hades, which was amazingly tight and precise in its gameplay, but was (imo) not very interesting as a rogue like and was way too wordy.

Oh yeah, short game but absolute blast to play and the OST is fantastic.

Is it a Rogue- or Metroid-something? Doesn't say anything in the trailer.

Looks cool but I've kinda had enough of those for a while.
