Soulblight IndieDB Header


It all began with a single drop. Form it two primal forces emerged. Forces of life and death. They fought one another in a futile effort to renounce their allegiance, only to realize that to exist separately is against their nature. From that communion the Soul Tree was born and with it the world as we know it.


Soulblight is a dark, unforgiving, top-down action roguelike luring you to cross the thin line between good and evil. Instead of XP grinding, it introduces a Tainting Mechanics. While traveling through the shattered reality of the Sanctuary, you will receive personality traits based on your choices. These will be the main source of your strength. To harness them, you will have to act accordingly. Becoming an alcoholic means that you will be rewarded for getting drunk, but from that point being sober might prove to be unbearable.

Features:

  • A unique Taint System designed to encourage role playing.
  • Tons of weapons, armor, and utility items.
  • Dynamic and tactical combat build around stamina management and distance control.
  • Optional stealth approach that complements fighting.
  • Randomly generated, visually breathtaking levels.
  • High difficulty level emphasized by permadeath mechanics.
  • Gameplay­-driven narrative.

Hey Everybody
Kuba from My Next Games here - It’s time for my another monthly update. This time I would like to start with an announcement :) We’ve been working on it in secret for couple of months and now it’s ready. TADAAAM!

Soulblight will go live on Nintendow Swtich on October 4th :D You can already find it in e-shop’s coming soon page ( Nintendo.com )

The upcoming Switch premier didn’t mean we stopped our updates this month. Traditionally every week there’s been a new poll on our discord channel ( www.discord.gg/trP7mPE ). The two new weapons you’ve chosen to be added to the game were “Dragon's Breath” and “Citizen's Sting”.



As a new armor set you’ve chosen the Studded Armor


And lastly you’ve voted for a new Stubborn taint



This is of course not the end of what we have in store for Soulblight - more new exciting things will come in the future :)

Meanwhile take care and cya next month,
Kuba

+1 for coop! Loved the Taint system description, reminds me a little of that Afflictions of Darkest Dungeon, but with a good side along!
