A Hearty Helping Of The Cursed Crusade Screenshots

By Ishaan . April 15, 2011 . 10:04am

It’s been a while since Atlus talked about The Cursed Crusade, their Kylotonn-developed cooperative medieval game. This week, they gave the game’s website a rather playful makeover and added new screenshots.


The Cursed Crusade has you playing as Denz, a holy templar, and Esteban, a mercenary, either online or offline in split screen mode. You can read up a little about the game’s lore at the website, and watch a couple of short clips of the combat.

    At times it gives me Demon’s Souls vibes, other times it reminds me of the old Die By The Sword.

    An eventual demo will be much appreciated.

    Lots of yellow and brown. This might be the first time this gen I don’t buy an Atlus game day one.

    • FireCouch

      Simply because it’s yellow and brown? Or because it has a “western” feel to it?

      • HarryHodd

        Western feel, subject matter, brown graphics and time period.

          You disappoint me

          • HarryHodd

            Sorry I can’t please everyone. I got Catherine ore-ordered though.

            Edit: I might pick this up eventually if it’s good. I mean I trust Atlus to bring good games, I’m just not into what I’ve seen from this.

            Give it a chance and stop being so anti western. You know the word for that

          • Ladius

            @cowcow above: avoiding a game simply because it’s western is absolutely wrong in my book, but defending it simply because it’s published by Atlus USA andor mistreating others because they won’t share your opinion isn’t the smartest course of action :

            This game could be really interesting, but it is a little sad to think that probably it wouldn’t have attracted this kind of attention if it wasn’t for its being published by Atlus USA, not to mention the whole “Atlus made Demon’s Souls, and Cursed Crusade is like a DS spin off!” misconception many seem to believe.

      I’m going to agree that it’s unnecessary for them to use so many sepia tones to make games “realistic” when I go outside it’s not horridly brown, there are even trees in the screenshots but due to the colour choices they barely look alive.

      I’ll never understand why so many games deny a broad colour scale and instead do this.

      • HarryHodd

        That’s my point. Why are trees leaves yellow? Is it fall? Seems like green and other colors are muted.

        • About the trees, it actually depends on which siege in the 4th crusade we’re talking about here. These are screenshots are from probably from Zara since that’s as far as the website goes for now. The Siege of Zara took place during November 1202, so yes, it would actually be fall.

      • MarkMario

        Agreed. It needs moar color

      • FireCouch

        It isn’t to be more realistic. It’s a stylistic choice.

        • Ladius

          Pursuing realism is a stylistic choice by itself, though.

  • Hope there will be a demo…
    Or, at least i hope it doesnt get beaten in less than 20 hours, if beating the game takes more (even if a bit) than 20 hours, i would get it
