Valfaris post: GIFs of metal: Keeping it chill

As development on Valfaris hits the final stretch and things get increasingly frantic behind-the-scenes, please enjoy this selection of especially chill GIFs:


Therion takes a break in the Cathedral level and enjoys the view from the high altar


Just a hunch, but this may not be the safest place to stop for a breather


Looks like Therion's found a good spot to wash all that blood off his battle axe


Therion comes face-to-face with a guardian of Valfaris' Hive level

Until next time, keep it metal!

Valfaris post: Meet the boss: Itnan



Say 'hi' to Itnan – one of the bosses you'll encounter as you battle your way through Valfaris. Inhabiting the 'Tombs' of Valfaris, Itnan is armed with a rather large, and very dangerous, railgun. But there's more to fear about Itnan than just his enormous firearm – he has the ability to transform into a swarm of deadly bugs, so that's something you'll definitely want to watch out for.

For a clearer look at Itnan, here he is without the background:



Until next time!

About This Game

Slain: Back from Hell

You control the fate of Bathoryn, a doomed hero in a Gothic world, who seeks to liberate six cursed realms from six deadly overlords.

He must battle his way through this blighted land, packed with gruesome pixel art foes before ascending (or sometimes descending) into a stronghold, all the while defeating fiendish traps and vile monsters alike.

At the heart of every domain Bathoryn will confront a mighty foe - defeat it and his quest continues to its ultimate destiny. Fail, and you’ll die gruesomely – mauled by werewolves, disintegrated by floating monstrosities, squashed by great weights or torn apart by hidden blades. And you will fail…

There are 3 key areas to be mastered in order to vanquish Slain: Back from Hell.

- Learn to wield 3 deadly elemental weapons, each one exploiting weaknesses in different enemy types. Each has a different combo, timing and use. Mastering quick switching between weapons is the path to victory!
- Glean the placement and timings of enemies and booby traps.
- Generate, conserve and unleash your Mana wisely.

Accompanied by the heavy metal visuals is an even heavier metal soundtrack recorded by Curt Victor Bryant (formally of Celtic Frost).

Features
  • Challenging ‘elemental’- based melee and magical combat
  • 6 hours of bone-crushing, metal-fueled mayhem & gore
  • Choose from 3 unique weapons in your fight against the demon hordes.
  • Full soundtrack recorded by Curt Victor Bryant formally of Celtic Frost. \m/
  • Cunningly concealed secrets (shhh).
  • Boss fights, mini-boss fights, sub-mini- boss fights & macro-sub- mini-boss fights.
  • No laborious levelling, no tedious grinding, no wimpy crafting!
