Kickstarter is one of the few places where indie devs get to present a cool idea and then get the money to make their dream come true. Dark Devotion is one of those games, and it has hit its mark on Kickstarter (the goal was €20,000), which means that we will get to experience brutal but skilful fights, an amazing atmosphere that’s enhanced by the game’s old-school pixelated graphics, an amazing RPG system, and more great features.
The most notable part about this game seems to be the combat. You see, in most side-scrolling RPG action games most of the enemies that you fight are easy prey, but in Dark Devotion every foe that you come across is trying to stay alive, and that means that they will do everything they can to kill you. The thing that makes combat in this game so exciting is that every mistake, no matter how small it is, can cost you your life. Every fight that you get into can end in your demise, so make sure that you’re prepared for every skirmish that you enter.
The game offers a lot of different weapons for you to use, as well as various armours and relic that you can use to create your own unique build, which can be either good or bad, depending on how you use it. All of the weapons in Dark Devotion have their own specificities, but you can customize them with mystical runes. Adapting to your enemy will also be a crucial part of the game, and players that are able to prepare for their foe will overcome any challenge that they come across. When you defeat your enemies, they will leave behind Faith which you can use to unlock mysterious secret paths, unique chests, and more.
