Soulblight IndieDB Header


It all began with a single drop. Form it two primal forces emerged. Forces of life and death. They fought one another in a futile effort to renounce their allegiance, only to realize that to exist separately is against their nature. From that communion the Soul Tree was born and with it the world as we know it.

Soulblight is a dark, top-down roguelike luring you to cross the thin line between good and evil. Instead of XP grinding, it introduces a Tainting Mechanics. While traveling through the shattered reality of the Sanctuary, you will receive personality traits based on your choices. These will be the main source of your strength. To harness them, you will have to act accordingly. Becoming an alcoholic means that you will be rewarded for getting drunk, but from that point being sober might prove to be unbearable.​

Features:

  • A unique Taint System designed to encourage role playing.
  • Tons of weapons, armor, and utility items.
  • Dynamic and tactical combat build around stamina management and distance control.
  • Optional stealth approach that complements fighting.
  • Randomly generated, visually breathtaking levels.
  • High difficulty level emphasized by permadeath mechanics.
  • Gameplay­-driven narrative.

Soulblight Beta for Xmas

News

Hello and Merry Christmas :)
So the holiday season is almost here. The decorations seems to be everywhere. A little christmas tree even found its way to my basement-office :)


With the festive season on the horizon we’ve been working very intensely for a last couple of weeks. As you know - we’ve been founded on the kickstarter last month. To once more show our gratitude we wanted to prepare a small christmas present for all of you :) And so we’ve taken on the task of closing Soulblight Beta before the holidays. Today I’m very happy to tell you - we’ve made it :)


So what does it mean that we’ve reach Beta. First of all, the backers that chose to support us with Early Seeker Kickstarter Tier or high will be receiving an access to the beta build (I will send out the keys in the moment). Besides that our demo build has received a significant update (It should update automatically via steam)


And here’s the demo change log:

  • Access to the new camp location where you can talk to NPCs and prepare for the journey ahead
  • Dual wielding mechanics
  • Small improvements to the tutorial
  • Rebalance of the taints available in the demo
  • The pyraps can now spawn on the top of you when you enter a new platform
  • Chrono Inhibitor power will now slowly regenerate over time
  • Grip now works more as a tool that you can use against your enemies than obstacle you have to overcome
  • The mobility state now increases your parry window.
  • The combat actions do not scale down when you don’t have enough stamina to perform them
  • New spiked boots that you can find and use
  • Now you can change targeted enemy with a right analog stick

Top-down perspective has multiple advantages. There are reasons why this perspective isn’t a popular choice among the developers though. Here's how...

+1 for coop! Loved the Taint system description, reminds me a little of that Afflictions of Darkest Dungeon, but with a good side along!
