Kickstarter Project of the Week 9/3 – 9/9

Dark Devotion

Following in the footsteps of Blasphemous’ gritty and grim platforming comes another similarly dark action game looking for funding through Kickstarter. This one earns similar praise for glorious pixel art (I am a little biased), but stands out in that it is also a rogue-like as well. Each encounter with an enemy promises to challenge you as you travel further into the world. Like other rogue-likes, you will find randomized loot and abilities along the way. I hope it takes a page from similar games and grants you permanent upgrades for completing sub quests in a single playthrough. This game appears to be the first from its developers at Hibernian Workshop, and has currently been in development for two and a half years before seeking funding on Kickstarter. With all this in mind, it’s possible that it could take another year or so before it reaches fruition, where as the project page states that it will see the light of day in the summer of 2018. The developers are asking for €20,000 ($24,028 USD) and have gotten just over €1,500 (about $2,000 USD) as of writing this post. For just €12 ($14 USD) you can get your hands on this game when it finally arrives.
