Salt and Sanctuary Launch Stream With Ska Studios [youtube.com]

Initial reviews [metacritic.com] are positive, and my initial couple of hours with the game did not disappoint. The first boss fight played just like an early boss fight should in a Souls game. The only difference was that the boss moves did not stay consistent and actually ramped up in difficulty towards the end of the fight. It was genuinely challenging. The narrative so far seems very strong, and there are some mechanics (e.g., sanctuaries, creeds, skill tree) that are original and could see them working well in a Souls game.

If you like Souls / Bloodborne style games and like the idea of something like that melded with Castlevania, this is as close as you will ever get. Very much recommend.

I was looking forward to this game for a while but haven't been paying much attention to games lately. How much is it? I might have to check it out.

$17 and some change on PSN. I really hesitated spending that much on an indie platformer, but this game is really like playing Dark Souls in 2D. Even to the extent of unlocking shortcuts and such. It is not a button mashing game and you can't just rush in and fight. Watch the gameplay video and you will get a better idea.

I might wait a while. I wouldn't have time to play it right now. I will play it at some point. I never played the Bloodborne dlc either and that's supposed to be great as well.
