Team 17 has done a sterling job of becoming one of the top indie publishers. The British based company may still be best known for developing titles like Worms and Alien Breed but recently it has been publishing a string of quality indie titles. Games like Planet Alpha, Yoku’s Island Express, Overcooked, and The Escapists have all been brought to consoles via Team 17. Well, they have just announced that the latest title they are going to publish is Blasphemous.
Developed by The Game Kitchen, Blasphemous is a punishing Metroidvania 2D action-platformer. With its pixel art and gruesome visuals, it certainly stands out from the crowd. You play as (the catchily titled) The Penitent One and are tasked with destroying the powers of darkness in the gothic land of Cvstodia.
You can check out the trailer for the game as well as the official description below –
In Blasphemous players take up the role of The Penitent One in the dark gothic land of Cvstodia, where a foul curse, known simply as The Miracle, has fallen.
Explore this nightmarish world of twisted religion and discover its many secrets hidden deep inside. Use devastating combos and brutal executions to smite the hordes of grotesque monsters and titanic bosses, all eager to tear you limb from limb. Locate and equip relics, rosary beads and prayers that call on the powers of the heavens to aid you in your quest to break your eternal damnation.
