Blasphemous is a dark and gruesome 2D platformer from the recesses of your deepest nightmares:
Set in the decaying land of Orthodoxia, a place where religion is of the utmost importance in the eyes of the populace, superstition runs amok, and churches outnumber people two to one. You will find yourself in this agonizing territory in the wake of the Age of Corruption, during which practically the entire population was transformed into hideous beasts as a punishment for their mutual blasphemy and inadequate worship; creatures that had deepened their profound faith, developing an unstoppable bloodthirst you now have to contend with…
As described by The Game Kitchen, Blasphemous is an action-platformer with hack-and-slash elements which revolves around a non-linear storyline. As the game progresses, enemies and bosses will become bigger, meaner, and scarier than ever. But don’t get so caught up in the battles that you don’t take the time to explore because you will be highly rewarded.
This beautifully grotesque platformer started as a Kickstarter campaign which achieved massive success. Their original goal of $50,000 was quickly met by over 9,000 backers, and the campaign earned over $300,000 for the game’s development. Needless to say, fans are more than excited to finally have an official release date for this new title.
Blasphemous is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC September 10, 2019, for $24.99. You can follow their last steps of development on their Twitter page or join in the discussion on their Discord.
