About This Game

Venture to the Vile is a spooky 2.5D Metroidvania set in the strange town of Rainybrook, which has been overrun by a mysterious entity known as the Vile.

Absorb the Vile’s powers, fight through treacherous grounds that were once your home, and find your lost friend Ella before it’s too late!


Jump, swing, and fight your way through dangerous enemies as you explore a carefully crafted 2.5D world full of puzzles to solve and secrets to discover. Unlock new abilities to overcome the Vile’s monstrosities — even if it means losing your humanity.

Every new ability helps you uncover new dynamic areas, find new unique bosses, 2.5D environments to explore, and be rewarded with upgrades as you go.


Explore the quaint seaside town of Rainybrook which has been infested with the Vile’s monsters. Meet the good yet peculiar townsfolk, help them with various quests to discover their stories, and uncover clues that might lead to your lost friend Ella.

The ending of this story is up to you - will you solve the mystery and best the Vile? Whether it’s helping the townsfolk with unusual sidequests or discovering hidden secrets in the world around, there’s more than meets the eye in the haunting and mysterious Rainybrook.


Are you prepared to take on the monsters of the Vile? Every boss fight is unique and will require the use of everything you’ve learned so far.

Whether you’re taking on a Kraken on the ghost ship or being chased through the hospital by a giant hare, you’ll need to use all your abilities and upgrades to your advantage to best every new enemy.


Experience an interactive world with Day/Night cycles and dynamic weather that will impact the game in different ways. Encounter different monsters at night! Seek out items and side quests that only appear under specific conditions!

Discover the many hidden effects triggered by dynamic weather, day/night cycles, and more. Side quests, items, and more will unlock at certain times or under specific conditions, so there will always be something new to explore and discover.

Want to play the game in a fresh way? Unlockable outfits shape the way you play the game, from outfits that increase difficulty to others that change the amount of loot you’re likely to encounter.

Can you overcome the Vile in every outfit?
