New level sneaky peaky! GDC coverage!

New level alert! Steel Mantis dropped a surprise this week with the news that they're working on a new level – the Dead Eco Chambers. That's all the info I have, but you can absorb the latent power of this mysterious new area by staring at it in the GIF above and beaming it into your eyes.

GDC Coverage

Valfaris had a fairly low-key presence at last month's GDC, but we still had some intimate meetings with some members of the media. Check the links below for coverage:
Until next time, keep it metal.

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!
