About This Game

Blessed Surface is an open-world 2d platformer, mixing the depth of its detailed and lively gameworld with fast-paced, chaotic gameplay. Relaxed exploration, a skill-rewarding, diverse combat system, and high potential character-building make up the core of the game.



▬ You can equip two weapons, which have two unique attacks each. A wide range of builds with unique movesets is available. You'll need to find weapons that combo well together, and can adapt to any situation.

▬ Charge up your finishing move and destroy enemies with style!

Timed blocking and other mechanics reward speed and accuracy.

▬ Collect ammo that drops from defeated creatures, and use your gunner mode for some extra damage on more difficult enemies.





▬ Collect armor, guns, melee weapons, and passive or triggered perks. Find what works well together and make your own playstyle!

▬ Nearly every creature you meet has a chance to drop its heart. Hearts give you one passive and one triggered perk, and you can have up to three hearts active.

▬ Hatch a creature as your pet. With a huge amount of potential pets, find the weirdest one to be your companion!

▬ Every armor set has a unique finishing move, as well as a luck stat that gives you a higher chance to meet special encounters.

Level up your weapons by hitting stuff with them!

Transformations, consumable items, summoning, bullet hells, and much more.





Events, both random and based on the real-time clock, ensure that you'll always see something different each play session, from different creatures emerging at certain hours, to daily bosses, to flowers changing color throughout the year.

▬ There's also an in-game ecosystem. Every monster you kill makes an impact on the population. Monsters lay eggs. They multiply with the passing of every real-time day. They have favorite foods, and fight each other. It's a living world.

▬ Lore and writing fleshes out a fairy tale-esque world, telling you fantastical stories about its unusual inhabitants through various sources, including item descriptions and an in-depth NPC dialogue system.



And perhaps, if you are determined, you might just find the Blessed Surface...
