Team17 and The Game Kitchen released their hack ‘n slash game Blasphemous on Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It’s priced at $24.99 USD/€24.99/£19.99 on consoles and $22.49 USD/$32.35 AUD on Steam.
The game offers large, non-linear worlds for players to explore. Combat is a challenging, pixel-perfect Metroidvania. Players have access to a variety of prayers, relics, rosary beads, and sword hearts to boost their skills, giving them a chance at surviving the brutal boss battles.
The world is inspired by southern Spanish folklore twisted into a horrifying nightmare. Players take on the role of The Penitent One, the lone survivor of the Silent Sorrow Massacre. They are now on a blood crusade across the lands of Cvstodia with their sword the Mea Culpa in hopes of saving themselves from The Miracle curse.
