That Gilda Wallpaper

I’ve finally finished that Gilda Wallpaper I was working on! Feel free to use it as a desktop image or Print it out in High Resolution. I learned a bunch from these wallpaper illustrations, they have been very fun and challenging experiences. Enjoy



Aside from that, we are still working daily on patching the game. Thanks for your patience.  Yesterday, I wrote a blog post to our kickstarter backers with a little bit of a recap. If you are want, you can go read that here.




Cheers!

Having to wait for what felt an eternity for this update i yet again find myself replying this game all over again. This has been my best purchase to date on steam and i dont say that lightly. i feel there is a real art to the fighting system in which sometimes through my frantic button bashing at times i hear in my head a little voice telling me "what you just did there, was AWESOME". My only problem with the game is it leaves me wanting to know so much more about the lore, the history of this game as the story itself is great, but leaves me asking more questions then i got answers. Not really something major with issues but its the characters you meet along the game that look interesting and quirky that make me feel that way. im begging for a sequel or even a prequel.
Endless fluff if you do this for me i will get a tattoo of Wyatt in honour of this!

I NEED MORE! Its rare nowadays to find games that have real difficulty which can be overcome with developed skill. I Wish more games would combine RPG mechanics with great skill based combo fighting systems.

I backed Valdis Story on Kickstarter because it looked like the kind of game I'd want to play: a side-scrolling action RPG. The truth is that it's really closer to a Metroidvania platformer with some RPG elements. Despite its short length I had it installed for a year and a half before I got around to beating it. I just wasn't that motivated to ever play it, for reasons I'll go into.

It is fundamentally a good game though. The soundtrack is amazing, the animations are smooth (though there was considerable slow down when there was a lot of stuff on the screen), and the special effects are much better than you'd expect from an indie crew with hardly any experience. The story leaves something to be desired, but it picks up later on and it's not bad, just lacking in emotion. It does make up for that in epicness and scale though.

The single biggest problem is the controls. Playing on a keyboard my hands would start cramping after just a few minutes of play. If the game were slower-paced I'd say that switching the right hand to mouse controls might be better, but it's too much of a twitch experience for that. And that's the crux of the issue: there's some very tight jumps and timings that have to be made and given that the controls can be glitchy and are just generally a pain to use, the puzzles and fights that depend on those split-second key presses should really have been a lot more forgiving.

The combat itself isn't too hard, especially if you bother to level up at all. When I could forget the pain of the controls it was genuinely fun if I wasn't in the middle of a frustrating boss fight. The game also follows the usual steps of getting easier as it progresses because you have access to more skills and spells and equipment. So the most rage-inducing moments are generally early on.

There's a crafting aspect I didn't get into, but you don't really need to. It seems sort of superfluous and confusing.

The other major issue is just finding the next objective. There is a fast travel system, but it doesn't go to nearly enough places. And when your destination is just a name that doesn't appear on a map anywhere it can take a long time to find where you're supposed to go. Some sort of objective pointer or even a global map would've helped me a ton (there is only a very small local map without any names on it). As it is, the bulk of my play time was probably spent wandering around trying to figure out where to go next.

So if you want an action platformer with RPG elements that depends on twitch skills, I'd highly recommend Valdis Story. It's the best you're going to see in that genre from an indie team. But for the sake of your hands and sanity, bring a controller instead of relying on the keyboard.

Very fluent combat. The more times you play through it, the more rewarding it becomes. I highly recomend to play on God Slayer difficulty. Just get this game, honestly.

I played this for about 25 hours on my son's computer (i wanted to try to beat the game, but i didnt)
One of the most well thought out, and well put together "metroidvania" games on PC i've ever played. The devs are dedicated to their project, and you can fell the passion they put into the game. I highly recommend!

I wasn't ready for this.

I didn't know what to expect when I installed the game but I definitely wasn't ready for this. But for me, this is like 2D Dark Souls - it pushes you in terms of difficulty, there are no quest log kinda stuff so you have to travel around and explore, parry system etc...

There are two main problems for me though:

1- Controls are not as fluid as it should be considering this game requires good reflexes.

2- There aren't a lot of enemies so far (and my friend told me that it doesn't get any better)

If you like Castlevania buy this. If you don't but like 2D fighting games, buy this. If you are a CoD kinda gamer who likes linear storytelling, kinda easy gameplay and first person viewpoint, I'm sorry but the princess is at another castle.

Valdis Story: Abyssal City is a RPG, side-scrolling platformer game and I can tell you know, It's definately one of the best ones I have played!

At the beginning of the game you have a choice between 2 unique characters (building up to 4 once you have completed the story mode) which you can play to progress through the story. They each have their own different skills and attacks that they use.

The game uses a simple spell casting system where you just hold a button and press a certain direction and it casts the spell you have binded onto it. Aside from the spells, the game enables you to use dashes, varying comboes between weak and strong attacks, wall jumps and more!

Each character has their own unique skill tree that you can use to enhance the characters performance. eg, Increase attack damage by 5%. It follows the basic RPG skill tree (Attack, Defense, Magic).

The boss fights in this game are my favourite out of all the platformers and RPGs. Each boss you encounter have different attacks and each have their own special moves. Not only are they challenging, they are also EXTREMELY fun to fight! You won't simply beat a boss with just luck! They also look really cool :3

The game's graphics and music are just straight up AMAZING! The anime-like art style really does pull a lot of audience in, and I am not suprised. The devs really know what people like!

Overall, I would give this game a 9.5/10 for all of the reasons I have mentioned above. The only thing I find that this game is lacking the Quest log or Objective menu. When you speak to an NPC and you take a quest, at some points I found it frustrating because I could not find the desired place I needed to go, simply because I had no clue where it was. That being said, I am sure the devs will add this in the future since they seem to be updating the game very often.

Do you like Iga's Metroidvania's? Then you will eat this game up. its oozing with similar game design and style, and has an impressive amount of polish. its the closest thing to having an Iga game on steam, similar titles don't compare, The writting is a bit lacking, but that doesn't really detract from the experiance. Aditional difficulties really push the skills of the player harder than most castlevani titles too.

Valdis Story: Abyssal City is a good example of drawing quality out of a game through a well-oiled grounded combat system. Fighting in it rewards learning enemy patterns and conscious battling and its skill tree system doesn't hold your hand on what to get but satisfies those who like to create builds. While length might feel a little short, two playable characters with different skills and weapons (with two more on the way) help hold you for your dollar's worth. Art style is great and leaves character easily recognizable though the story comes across as a tad cliche with its angels and demons angle. At times, the dialogue and backstory veers into teenagers-RPing-on-GaiaOnline levels of corniness but it ultimately doesn't choke you with it.

To sum it up, Valdis Story is definitely worth the fifteen dollars and while it might have needed a bit of reining in on the creators' parts with dialogue and story, it's really a labor of love, shown in its well built combat system, an essential in this type of genre.

One of my all time favorite IGAvania style games to date. Amazing artwork with a beautiful land to explore, quick pace and skill based game play with several different ways to play each of the Four unique characters accompanied with solid controls I keep coming back to play more.

This game should not be passed up by anyone who's a fan of the "metroidvania" style games, there's plenty of ways to play each character focusing on different builds and spells. Mastering Valdis story's game play is a great challenge with even the normal difficulty setting posing a hardy threat, higher difficulty settings are not for the meek.

Pros:
- Reasonably challenging
- Fantasic design
- Hack 'n' Slash mech smooth
- Fun little platforming challenges
- Diverse Character playstyles
- Soundtrack is Great

Cons:
- No Quest Log
- Only 2 Characters ( 2 more to be added )

This game had taken me 12hrs to complete at that was only 83% acording to the game. I found myself staying in a few area's just to kill a few certain mobs and admire the atmosphere the game provided. Really enjoyed the game.

If you have any interest at all in the Metroidvania genre, this is the game for you.

Since the most recent update, there are now 4 playable characters, each of whom has distinct play styles - not only from each other, but even with different builds of the same character, via the various weapons which you can use.

This game rewards perfection - after you kill a boss, you'll be judged on how well you did, with combat (amount of damage taken), time, and potions (did you run out of health/mana) all tallied up. If you're good enough to get an S or A rank, bosses will award extra skillpoints or stats, which will make your character that much more deadly. In contrast, if you barely squeak by a fight with a C, D, or F rank, you'll get a handful of XP, barely more then you would killing some no-name minion.

Each character has 4 stats (strength, agility, intelligence, and luck) and 3 separate skill trees which you can invest in, all of which can give bonuses and unlock new abilities.

In addition to the different weapons which I've already mentioned, you can also get about a dozen different kinds of armor, all of which have different bonuses; accessories, which tend to be very powerful, but all have some kind of tradeoff; and assistants, other characters who you team up with during the game who can be called into battle to fire off an attack and often give bonuses as well.

Oh, and your weapons, armor, and assistants can all be leveled up, improving their stats and often giving better/bigger/more attacks.

If I had to name some negatives, one would be that trying to max out everything (which isn't needed to complete the game) takes a lot of grinding, and that some bosses (especially some of the optional ones) are exceptionally difficult (to beat - let alone get a good rank on). Minion respawning (which takes place whenever you leave a screen) can also be a pain, although it can be used to help collect more materials for upgrading and/or gain levels.

In conclusion, an extremely strong game which has seen amazing support from the developer.

A catchy and charming side scrolling battle platformer. Pretty art, interesting combat system with melee, spells, and a good mix of spells and items. Not the least bit shy about ramping challenge up to frisky levels that remind me of the glory days. I spent over an hour of intense almost-frustration learning a boss... but I felt my skills ramping up to meet it. A few situations border on punishing, especially toward the end- but that does make your victory even sweeter.

There is a neat cast of characters, lots of secrets to find, and an interesting overall story about the fall of the goddesses who made the world. I definitely enjoyed my time in Valdis Story.
