8-Bit Dark Fantasy Odallus Is A Change Of Pace For Developer JoyMasher

Recommended Videos

 

JoyMasher has put its 8-bit dark fantasy action platformer Odallus up for pre-order at $14.99 a pop for Windows PCs.

 

This is JoyMasher’s next game after Oniken, which sees them swapping fast-paced sci-fi action for a slower, exploration-focused experience, inspired by classics like Ghosts’n Goblins, Demon’s Crest and Castlevania.

 

You play as a warrior named Haggis who, upon returning home from war, finds that a dark lord has ravaged his peaceful village, and so he sets out to put an end to him.

 

While the levels in Odallus are inspired by NES game designs, there is no one way through them, encouraging you to find new routes where extra items, hidden enemies, and secrets lie in wait.

 

There are five expansive areas in total, all linked in various ways, and all infested with demons and bosses for you to slay. It won’t be easy.

 

Odallus was successfully funded on Indiegogo in 2013, and should be coming to Windows PCs soon. You can grab an older demo here (direct download) and can check out its website for more information.
