Cathedral is a game by DecemberBorn which takes you back to the roots of NES gaming and the 8 bit era. Its main focus is on exploring an unknown world, trying to figure out where and who you are. Discover hidden areas, investigate towns and avoid both traps as well as the dangerous creatures that inhabit this strange world.
Hi everyone, this is the Decemberborn Interactive team bringing you another update on our massive metroidvania Cathedral. With the release of the game less than a month away (Oct 31, 2019) we wanted to write up a post showcasing some of the last implementations in the game. We've also started out handing out review copies to influencers and content creators, but more about that later!
New side quests and upgrades
With the first beta testers making their way through the game, we've been busy implementing some of the last content for Cathedral. The game was already playable from beginning to end, with some testers already having killed the final boss, but our developers have poured some extra hours to make the game shine even more.
As some of you may already have seen, you unlock the Magnus Apparatus early on in the game. This golden gauntlet lets you shoot enemies into oblivion with arrows, but now we've attached a big side quest to it. We can say that completing this quest will reward you immensely and greatly power up your device.
As you can see, this quest will not just be located in a single area but rather spreads out over the entire game. You will have to use all your sources and find yourself through plenty of secrets to uncover the true power of the Magnus Apparatus.
We also have implemented some other side quests around the game to streamline the game better, plus another new mini boss that's hidden in the depths of Shade Forest. Its name is Blood Knot, and you will need some power to kill this one!
Reaching out to influencers and content creators
Like we mentioned before, we've starting reaching out to content creators and influencers who want to play, stream and review our game! If a vast, challenging metroidvania is your cup of tea then don't hesitate to get in contact with us for a review key! You can find us through Keymailer or email us anytime. We've already set up our game on Twitch too, and we've already enjoyed watching so much content of people having a blast with Cathedral!
Remember you can already wishlist and pre order the game on Steam and GOG, so head over there to find out more about the game and check it out. We will be back with an IndieDB update when we release on Halloween, so we're looking forward to that too!

This looks completely lovely. Makes me think of Shovel Knight.
Is there the possibility of a Switch version?
Right now the release will focus on Windows / Mac and Linux releasing on both Steam and GOG - but yes, all we can say is that we have our eye on Switch as well.
Guys, can you please add tunic to the sprite character?, like "templar" / crusader tunic. Example: Migladin.com
