Prototype Redux Demo



Titan Souls started as a game jam project between Mark Foster, David Fenn, and Andrew Gleeson for Ludum Dare 28 under the prompt “you only get one” leading the single shot, single hit point the game has become known for during development. That original prototype is the basis for the new Titan Souls demo, remade with the final visual style, soundtrack, sound design, and gameplay updates found in the full game.

About This Game

Between our world and the world beyond lie the Titan Souls, the spiritual source and sum of all living things. Now scattered amongst the ruins and guarded by the idle titans charged with their care, a solitary hero armed with but a single arrow is once again assembling shards of the Titan Soul in a quest for truth and power.

Colossal Titans: Explore the ancient ruins of your forefathers and uncover extraordinary and unique titans, each with their own savage attacks and hidden weakness. Find and exploit their faults to slay the beasts and consume the primeval power that lies within them.

Simple Combat: Loose your solitary arrow at the monstrous titans and summon it back to your hand to unleash another forceful strike. Dash and run from the titan’s attacks but do not fear death, as it is both inevitable and plentiful in Titan Souls.

Arcane Secrets: This realm is not without its secrets. Long forgotten titans are hidden in the shadows and prowling through the furthest corners of the land – find them, destroy them, and take their souls for your own to discover the true extent of the power that resides here.

Very boring and repetive. You go from one boss to another and kill it in different ways. Why? Well, none knows, there is no story, no lore no nothing. Can be pretty frustrating from time to time, so it's a lot of trial and error. Also it should be played with a controller, with keyboard you will have a very hard time, especially for the very last boss. Oh, and if you die, enjoy walking back to the boss instead of spawning right at him...

All the people who complain about the difficulty level are irritating. The only reason it's hard is that you fail to see bosses patters or execute them correctly... Great game.

I have no problem with hard games, but they have to be fair. The split-second timing in this just isn't fun. On top of that, some bosses are just phoned in. Bosses that take no wits or finesse to beat, just a lucky shot at the right angle to hit it's weakpoint.

There's some great bosses that play on the mechanics you're given, the lava blob in particular would be a great boss in another game. In this you have less than a second to retrieve your arrow and shoot it when you've revealed the weak point.

I get that when every boss dies in one hit, you have to make it harder to get that one hit to lengthen the game but it cheapens the experience.

I bought this game through the humble bundle, and that is the only price point I can recommend for this game.

If you don't like hard games, don't play this. Seriously.

I didn't know what to expect so I ran into the first area. Hit a blob. It split in two. One of them landed right on me.
DEAD.
Another door. Giant ice cube. I hit it. It quickly slides in my direction.
DEAD.

You WILL die. You WILL yell at your screen. You WILL get mad at your characters slow reflexes.
Yet, you will continue to try again. Over and over.

I honestly won't play this consistently until it's over. I'll pick it up, play, get mad, destroy everything, then put it down for another day. But you know what? That's okay.

When Pope Benedict asked Giotto for a drawing to prove his worth as an artist, Giotto drew a perfect circle - freehand ... perfection is a powerful message. Simple, but perfect.

This game has some nice artwork, soundtrack, and even basic premise. However, the further into the game, the more it's obvious that this game needed some more variety. Having such a large number of bosses with essentially identical behavior makes this game bland. The worst part for me is that sometimes I would have the right idea for how to beat a boss, but the mechanics wouldn't register the kill, so I'd try a bunch of other tactics...that also wouldn't work. Eventually, I'd YouTube the answer, and lo! it was the first thing I tried. WINNING MECHANICS NEED TO WORK ALL THE TIME. Pick up for a few bucks on sale, but definitely not worth the full $15.

It's a pretty good proof of concept. When does the full game come out?


I'll explain. The entire game is boss fights, but there aren't a whole lot of them. The only other gameplay element is wandering around a small world looking for bosses, which is just filler in an already exceedingly short game.

To their credit, the designers did well with the combat mechanic used. Unfortunately, they definitely started to run out of ideas. Some of the bosses are completely reliant on quickly hitting a small target in a split second opening, with attacks to avoid before you get the chance to do so.

The game also felt incomplete right from the start. After defeating every boss an over-the-top animation is played in which you absorb its soul, power, whatever. This does nothing and serves no purpose. It leads me to believe that it was supposed to do something, but the developers either ran out of time or didn't know how to make use of it. There is no character progression.

There is one moment of story in the entire game. Interestingly, it hints that by killing the Titan Souls you will gain knowledge or power, but as stated in the previous paragraph, nothing happens when you kill a boss.

The music is exceptionally strong, and is probably the strongest part of the entire game.

The quality of the artwork is high. The water and lighting effects are quite impressive, however the aesthetic is generic and uninspired. Though this is largely subjective, the main world has a standard overgrown monolithic theme, with an even more generic forest, lava cave, and frozen area. The open world aspect of the game again seems like it was intended to be something more, but somehow ended up as an afterthought.

boring game without story. the hold x to run thing is ♥♥♥♥♥ rediculous because you have to roll first. and you cant roll or run what direction you want since the movement isnt sensitive enough to react like there is 0.5 second input lag.

I dont even know what to tell, I wish there was a "Not for Everyone" button. But I can't keep myself from giving this game a big thumbs up. Simple and astonishing graphics, great soundtrack, very different boss types, challenging boss patterns, well-fit locations. People who says "Very hard bosses, boring" etc. are completely not thinking their way through to find bosses weak spots/moves or bought the wrong game. This game is like a isometric 8-Bit baby boy of Dark Souls and Shadow of the Colossus. I agree that game is challenging but it doesn't mean you can't enjoy it. Believe me, if this game was easier, you wouldn't get the %10 joy of geting a titan from the whole game.

Overall: 92/100
