Honestly not sure how this will fall, could be awful, could be great. I've only played one 2d Dark Souls inspired game that was any good: Unworthy. The rest of the bunch like Salt & Sanctuary, Death's Gambit, and Sundered range from mediocre to horrid.

I Kickstartered this game but pretty sure for the PC version... So I'm gonna have to rebuy it on Switch.

There was a demo a few days ago, but I get why you're worried :P. Personally, I liked what I saw.

Really cool and tidy OT!

I hope they fixed the bugs reported in the demo, cause I'm dying to play this ever since it was announced.

Here's to it hopefully doing well!

I really just want more Hollow Knight. Is there any chance this is remotely similar? It looks cool.

Been looking forward to this for a while, it's annoying how it releases so close to other stuff but I think I'm still gonna jump in.

Nice simple but beautiful OT. I don't know when I'll buy this but I'm very eager to finally play it! I'm excited for another Spanish studio getting big indie games out there and hope it reviews well and gets recognition.

Salt& sanctuary looks bad to me and I didn't like Death's gambit almost at all, but what I've played of this (the recent steam demo) had a really good feel and made me quite excited! This one will be good. I don't fully like Dead cells either. Gotta check Unworthy out. Sundered isn't even a soulslike it's more like a bad Dead cells I think.

Well, kinda. What was shown in the demo wasn't as big on metroidvania design but it was just the beginning of the game, and in terms of traversal mechanics and upgrades/customization it can end up being quite more limited I imagine, but it has in common a very original setting and mechanics that just work and feel right. I've got good expectations and I loved Hollow Knight. This one will probably be shorter/smaller though but it's ok to me.

Does this game have a proper map system? I couldn't get into Salt and Sanctuary or Death's Gambit because they didn't have traditional Metroivania-style maps that actually showed individual rooms.

Death's Gambit's getting a full overhaul of the mechanics and stuff on a DLC actually. They're gonna add a map as well.

Backed during the kickstarter and have been eager since.

Mentioned in the OP, but here's the particulars of the Switch performance:

It's nice the devs put in the extra effort to ensure it would properly run on the system at launch.......unlike some others :P

Ok I'm sold, Hollow Knight is also a ''20 hour game'' too and It took me 80 hours to finish my first playthrough (Completion 108%)
Yes like hollow knight, it depends on what you do, the game has multiple paths, and secret areas, and multiple secret bosses. Hidden quest. Etc.

Hope this does well, cause it looks the most appealing aesthetically for me out of these 2D action-adventure games.

Guys, anybody knows if they've sent the review copies already? Because we haven't received ours yet and there's been no answer from the publisher.

Been hyped for this since its first reveal. Looks like an ultra gritty take on Castlevania. Now to choose which platform to get it on. I’m leaning towards the Switch version.

Really looking forward to this. Glad to hear the Switch version is shaping up well.

Oh, that's cool. Death's Gambit is really close to being good. Hopefully the DLC will help.
