PC gamers can play a limited time demo of Team17 and The Game Kitchen’s Blasphemous on Steam, just in case you were on the fence about how much blasphemy is too much blasphemy. Like, so much blasphemy, you guys.
Blasphemous is a gory, Metroidvania sort of action-platformer in which you play as The Penitent One, running around in a pointy helmet full of blood (not yours), smiting things with a sword named Mea Culpa (yes), in an effort to free the land of Cvstodia from an evil curse and yourself from eternal damnation. Y’know, a lighthearted little romp for the whole family.
The Game Kitchen was previously responsible for The Last Door, a point-and-click psychological horror game inspired by the works of Edgar Allen Poe and H.P. Lovecraft. You’d know Team17 from their, excessively violent and bloody, Worms and Overcooked franchises. Just go with it.
The demo lets you play through the starting areas, including smiting the first boss. It will be available on Steam until 1 September.
Blasphemous is out for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch on 10 September 2019.
