Bathoryn is a Gothic warlord whose fate is in your hands. You see, six realms have been cursed by the rule of vicious overlords, and it's up to you to liberate them. The game is inspired by metal music and features similar imagery as well as tunes composed by a former member of Celtic Frost
(if you haven't heard of them, the fact that they wrote a song called "A Dying God Coming Into Human Flesh" should tell you all you need to know).
The pixel-based combat focuses on the elements, and the developers believe you will need to master three key areas in order to kill your foes:
- Learn to wield 3 deadly elemental weapons, each one exploiting weaknesses in different enemy types. Each has a different combo, timing and use. Mastering quick switching between weapons is the path to victory!
- Glean the placement and timings of enemies and booby traps.
- Generate, conserve and unleash your Mana wisely.
To accompany the game's release date this October is a console announcement trailer in which you can see the game in action yourself.
Slain: Back from Hell
