Team17 along with developer, The Game Kitchen, has today released the brutal action-adventure game, Blasphemous, to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game is available digitally through each system’s respective marketplace for $24.99/€24.99/£19.99.
A foul curse and twisted monsters mean Cvstodia only has one hope for redemption. That hope rests with ‘The Penitent One’, the one and only survivor of the ‘Silent Sorrow’ massacre. Players take on the role of this character as he enters a cycle of death and rebirth where suffering and failure are nothing but temporary obstacles. The Penitent One’s sword, the Mea Culpa, will gradually evolve into a force to be reckoned with as it slices through seemingly never-ending hordes of enemies and even tougher bosses.
During the adventure, players will interact with various tortured souls to learn about their stories, gain rewards, special attacks, and ultimately put an end to their suffering.
“Today’s launch of Blasphemous is a real milestone for The Game Kitchen, it’s a game that has been a labour of love for everybody involved in its development. The journey of ‘The Penitent One’ through Cvstodia is a hardcore, unforgiving experience, and we hope that players will really immerse themselves in the game’s twisted and nightmarish world. We believe Blasphemous delivers a new and exciting experience for fans of the Metroidvania genre. We’re excited to bring the history and folklore of southern Spain to players and we can’t wait to see how the community reacts to the dark, gothic world the studio has created out of that inspiration.”
