KS Update #13 — The Portal of Worlds



«Ancient legend says that every sinful soul will be condemned to wander the world between worlds for eternity. But the souls of worthy heroes will one day arrive. Only these chosen ones will be able to undo the Valley’s curse, save themselves, and free the thousands of other cursed souls.»

The Blind Elder, the sole inhabitant of the Old Church, told the heroes a horrible story about the Valley’s curse, a doom that imprisoned thousands of souls in this dark world forever. There is one way to escape, but only the worthy will succeed.

This world has become a prison for sinful souls. The only way out is an ancient portal, sealed by unknown forces thousands of years ago. Since then, the Valley has been steadily filled with sinful souls from thousands of worlds. Demons, bandits, monsters, beastmen and other creatures grow in number day by day.

Legend says the portal can only be opened once the seals of sin have been destroyed, and each seal is protected by a fearsome guardian, a Sin Lord.

«There will be no escape while the seals are intact and their guardians live. Seven huge monsters. Seven embodiments of deadly sin. Seven horrifying battles on the road to salvation.»

What awaits our heroes at the end of their grim and bloody road? Freedom for their souls? New challenges? Are you absolutely sure that you’re the chosen ones?

KS Update #12 — Sinners’ rewards



Hello everyone!

Today we will discuss in detail all the available rewards for supporting Sin Slayers on Kickstarter. Among the pledge tiers you will find many unique items, opportunities to design in-game elements, and other ways to leave your mark on the game world and influence development.

Let’s check it out:

Digital copy of the game

The simplest tier. You’ll get a copy of the game on final release on the platform of your choice.

Beta Access

You’ll get access to the beta version of Sin Slayers, which we will be making available a little before the full release. This means you will be a pathfinder in the Valley of Fallen Sinners.

Digital artbook

You’ll receive a digital version of the Sin Slayers art book. The art book will tell you the story of the game’s creation and in-game lore, and show off the setting and visual style of the game - all in the form of professional illustrations, concept art and sketches.

Digital soundtrack

You’ll get the complete Sin Slayers soundtrack, from the game’s main theme to battle tracks and safehouse music.

Unique in-game item, chosen by backers

Anyone who supports the project will be able to cast their vote. The results will determine which exclusive item backers will receive. This artifact will have its own backstory, design, characteristics and special properties.

Name in credits

When your legendary squad slays the last demon on your way to salvation and the main campaign ends (... or not?), you’ll see your name in the end credits as a contributor to the creation of the game world.

Digital postcards and wallpapers

You’ll get a set of digital images for the desktop and stylized postcard art. You can print these out if you like, and send them to your loved ones to show off your adventures in the world between worlds.



Letter from the developers

The whole development studio will gather at a large round table and write many warm words of gratitude for you (in the best traditions of sinful souls. :) )

Create your own item and description

Come up with the name and history of an in-game item that every Sin Slayer can find, buy or create. The item will feature a unique backstory written by you, a record in the bestiary, and name of its creator. Always dreamed of a two-handed sword created in your honor? Your moment has come!

Design an enemy

This award includes a warm and cozy conversation with our character artist. You will describe to him the opponent of your dreams, tell his story, and together create a uniquely cursed enemy that every Sin Slayers will be able to meet. Your name will be immortalized after your hideous creation tears their squad to bloody shreds.

Design an NPC for the Old Church

You and our artist will collaborate to create a unique NPC to huddle in the safety of the Old Church’s walls. A squad of heroes will have to find this NPC in their travels and bring him to a safe place. The soul of the character will be forever grateful to you and other players who rescue them.

Design a unique combat location

Sin Slayers is a game where you’ll spend the majority of your time in combat. What could be better than a combat location thought up by you for players to show off their tactical skills? The background will be drawn by our artist according to the description you provide.



Design an entire area

How about creating your own area in the Sin Slayers setting? You will come up with the design, history and appearance of an entire new area for players to explore. Our artist will give life to your idea and give many heroes the opportunity to die and die again in the area invented by you.

Design a quest

Our game designer will contact you and together you will create the quest of your dreams. Kill 10 wolves, gather 5 stones, deliver this parchment to the barkeep - we hope you come with something better than this! :) Craft a story to become the basis of the quest, and we will add it to the game. Every traveler through the Valley of Fallen Sinners will have the opportunity to undertake your task.

Your logo on the loading screen

Want to see your own mark, personal logo or digital signature on the loading screen of the game? We’re offering that chance! By pledging this tier, you will give everyone who enters the Valley of Fallen Sinners an opportunity to see your company logo.

All future DLCs

This reward may be very simple, but we think it’s very interesting too: you will receive all future game DLCs, even if they’re so large we need another Kickstarter campaign to implement them. :)

Exclusive kickstarter quest (3 levels)

Everyone will be able to participate in this in-game quest. You will become one of the souls listed in the lost “Book of Sinners”. This item will be available in-game for players to find, and will list all backers who pledged at this tier.

Participation in the quest is divided into 3 levels:
  • Name in book
  • Name in the book and the stylized history of your sin
  • Name in the book, the stylized history of your sin and your stylized in-game image


Party with developers

Party with us! You travel to us, we treat you with pizza and stories about the development of the game. The most important thing in this award is memories and a bunch of photos!

About This Game



Sin Slayers: The First Sin is a free demo of Sin Slayers, an isometric RPG with roguelike elements, where your choices determine how challenging the fights and enemies will be.

This version contains 2-3 hours of gameplay, all major game elements, first story act and one procedurally generated map, that you can clear multiple times.

Create, equip and lead a team of heroes. Each unit will have its own abilities and weaknesses, so plan your combat strategy accordingly. You’ll journey through stinking primeval forests, boneyards riddled with crypts and the graves of fallen warriors, and other places even the bravest adventurer would fear to tread.

Battles, traps, and bizarre enemies... Everything and everyone wishes to take your life, but don't succumb to despair. Between fights your party can take their rest at a fountain, or while on the road in an old church which leaves its doors open to the weary and wounded.

Travel every path and byway of the Valley, obtain new weapons on the field of battle or by fulfilling quests, gather ingredients for magical elixirs and resources to craft armor and amulets. If a certain item is beyond your crafting ability, ask the blacksmith in the Old Church for help. The best gear will allow you to challenge the deadliest monsters.


The souls of many heroes were cursed upon death, leaving them to wander a dark and uncharted world, an afterlife reserved for sinners. Is this the end, or..?

Gather your team. Equip them with weapons, armor, and amulets. Level up your abilities as you move forward. The Sin Lords must be slain.



Sin Slayers features a classic turn-based combat system in the tradition of the best JRPGs, giving you free rein to pit your tactical skills against the wretched inhabitants of the Valley of Fallen Sinners.

Steel yourself. Enemies are everywhere and you will need to make difficult decisions and face dire peril to prevail.



Depending on your choices, the sinfulness of your team will go up or down. If it's high — expect tougher enemies. Whatever might be buried there, is it wise to desecrate those graves? Every decision you make matters, and on the road to the next Sin Lord you will have many opportunities to choose poorly.



Every crusade against a Sin Lord will be unique as every location is randomly generated. Think you know everything there is to know about a fetid swamp? We promise there are new lessons to learn, though they may not be to your liking!



Legends tell of a place betwixt worlds, a region outside time and space called the Valley of Fallen Sinners.

A dense, preternatural fog lays like stinking breath over black woods. What cursed hordes await? Vicious beasts, damned warriors, the undead, and worse chthonian horrors, all with an unslakable craving for new souls to perpetuate their own unnatural life.

This region is for the most contemptible cowards, those who died because of their sins and the darkness weighing down their souls. At one time, they lived as brave heroes across a multitude of worlds, and bards composed ballads to their noble deeds. Until the day darkness flooded their hearts and killed them.

Now regret consumes them, but their souls will find no rest. They are doomed to wander the Valley endlessly, searching for rest, respite, an end to their torture. But they will know no peace until someone destroys the seven seals of the Portal of the Worlds. Only then will the gates open and the damned finally escape their prison...

Truth be told, no one has attempted this before.
