Valfaris post: GIFs of metal – secret area, glowing fauna, stone golem


Above: If you've played the demo, you might recognise this gloomy chamber – it's one of the Landing Pad level's secret areas. Have you found it? And if you haven't played the demo, get on it!


Above: With an activated resurrection pedestal nearby, Therion takes a breather among the Hive level's eerily hypnotic glowing fauna


Above: A formidable stone golem stands guard deep with the Tombs level. We haven't shown much of the Tombs since we first revealed it, but we'll have more of this – and Valfaris' other levels – to show you soon

Keep it metal!

Valfaris post: GIFs of metal – jellies, bugs, plants

I come bearing more GIFs of metal. All of these are taken from different areas of the Eco Chambers – Valfaris' sprawling second level and home to all manner of deadly flora and fauna...


Above: This eruption of space jellies occurs during an encounter with the Eco Demon, one of Valfaris' sub-bosses. Therion's rapid-fire Hellwraith reduces the luminous jellies to a splattery pulp without ever breaking a sweat


Above: Therion scrambles through the bug-infested hive area of the Eco Chambers, where there's plenty of squishing and exterminating to be done


Above: After destroying a target, the Wolflight weapon emits wolf spirits which home in on any other enemies that are present. Here it's helping Therion keep some deadly fronds at bay

Until next time, keep it metal.

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).
