Brutal Gothic action platformer Slain!
Slain! is a Gothic-styled action platformer being developed by Wolf Brew Games (a team of just two!). It looks to be a gory and electrifying Castlevania! It’s a 2D pixel-art adventure that seems to go well with throbbing heavy metal music! You play the white-haired warrior “Bathoryn”, a hero tasked with the liberation of seven great towers! There are traps – spiked pits, moving iron cages and swinging balls – as well as puzzles and monsters to slay! Anyway, it looks pretty brutal, so maybe check it out in the video below?! The bit where Bathoryn ignites his blade with fire was what did it for me!
