A dark souls-inspired 2D action game with only bosses. Overcome the darkness in the world and walk into the light. Best experienced with headphones. Find the soundtrack here.

Controls:

  • WASD - Move
  • E - Interact
  • Space - Dash
  • K - Attack
  • L - Shield
  • P - Pause
  • H - Show / Hide Help Box

Gameplay tips:

  • Similar to other souls-likes, learning attack patterns, using the actions available to you wisely, and perseverance, are key to victory
  • There is an order to the bosses - the difficulty is there to guide you in the right direction
  • Watch the attached video for a speed-run of the game
  • If you're really struggling, activate Assisted Mode from the settings menu. This will lower boss HP and guide you to the bosses in order

Enjoy!

Very interesting game! The music really created a great atmosphere and it was visually very nice. I did think it was quite difficult to play but it was an enjoyable game :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)

As a player, the enemies are too hard and you have such little HP. I had no problems with the controls and I like the sound effect for the dash Wossh...Besides the hard enemies I found the game a good one, with well done graphics and use of lighting.

Thanks for playing and for the feedback! I'm glad you enjoyed the sound effects, graphics and lighting. I've now specified in the description that the game is inspired by similarly difficult games to help set expectations, and will also add a mode by the end of the day where enemy HP will be lowered for those who want a different experience. I understand that the high difficulty is for a niche audience!


Edit: Assisted mode is up and running! See the description for details
