    Salt & Sanctuary (PS4/Vita/STEAM) {2D Dark Souls}



    Spoiler: show


    If you’re familiar with some of our earlier games like The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile and Charlie Murder, you should know what to expect: solidly executed, intricate and brutal combat, lovingly hand-drawn and animated 2D art (of the non-pixel variety), a killer in-house soundtrack, and a massive roster of set-defining, dynamic and unique bosses. Salt is inspired as much by our history as a studio as it is by old classics like Castlevania DS, and new classics like the Souls series.

    Like in The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile, the emphasis in Salt and Sanctuary is stylistic sidescrolling combat: weapons have movesets, air attacks have hang time, and rolling is king. There’s a huge amount of depth to the combat in Salt, however. Weapons can be one-handed and paired with shields or offhand crossbows for versatility, or wielded two-handed for added power — and every configuration has its own unique moveset. There are staffs for magic, bows for ranged combat, and belt-slotted consumables like throwing daggers and weapon-buffing Pitchfire. Of course, loadout weight affects your movement, rolling speed and stamina regen, so a good balance of defense and agility is key. Basically, it combines two things we love: fast, precise 2D combat and super strategic RPG depth. Also, there are curb stomps.

    “There’s block, parry, roll, light attack, strong attack, jump, guard breaks, a dedicated healing potion, and a stamina bar that works identically to those in the Souls games,” the video reports. “But the familiarity goes further than just controls. It’s in so many elements that of game’s design, and there’s so many moments in the game where things just click.”

    saw this on lobosjr stream today, game looks really good as a 2d souls clone, surprised this had no one talking about it.

    edit: added stream link while it's still live: http://www.twitch.tv/lobosjr

    Game is wicked fun, I've beaten like 6 bosses or so. I also found a neat glitch to get into an area early, I'll pop it into this post once it finishes uploading.

    Alright, the glitch gets you to the shortcut in the Red Hall of Cages:

    Figured it out when those things tackled me off a ledge in another area and I survived a long fall.

    It's supposed to have cross-buy between the PS4 and Vita, so I guess so.

    Played this @IndieCade in the PS tent and couldn't put it down. Must buy for Bloodborne/Souls fans.
