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, unforgiving, top-down action 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.

Our new game's almost ready!

News

Hey, hey, hey, it's us My Next Games again, because it's time to tell you what we've managed to do recently and to introduce some of the things we're currently working on!

First things first - we managed to launch our Patreon! As you may know, a good portion of our games are free. Therefore, if you would like to support us in some way, Patreon will be the best option. Why? Because by doing so you will also get great bonuses! You can, for example, gain pre-release access to our content on YouTube, have the opportunity to listen to our talk at monthly dev streams, or be mentioned in the credits of our games. We also have something special for our biggest fans. As a special reward for those who decide to support us at the highest threshold, we have chosen the opportunity... to become a character in our game! Yeah, you read that right. We wanted to give you something that you will enjoy and at the same time something that will be (in our opinion) a cool reward for such generous support.

Another equally important thing is that... you will soon be able to try out our new game! This is another production from the "Tales From The Arcade" series, which of course already includes “Starship Murder”. And soon "Farmania" will also join this group! The name here is not accidental, and we hope you will fall in love with the idea as quickly as we did.

In "Tales From The Arcade: Fartmania" we play the role of one of the pigs. However, it turns out that all the other piglets in the village have been kidnapped by an alien ship! Our hero must take to the air and save his friends. You will probably ask - how? Well... with the help of farts. Each click of the spacebar is another fart taking the pig up all the way to the top. But this does not mean that the journey will be easy. On the contrary! During the expedition a lot of difficulties and obstacles await the hero, and one wrong move can knock him back at the very bottom of the village.

Thanks to the implementation of the ranking system, you can compete with your friends both in terms of how fast you can beat the game and in terms of the number of rescued pigs! We are sure that you are in for a lot of fun and laughter while playing "Tales From The Arcade: Fartmania"!

And if you would like to become one of the characters in Farmania, just visit our Patreon and pledge your support with the Live Chat threshold. Thanks!

Also remember that we continue to successively publish new videos on our YouTube. Our latest video is the one about (in our opinion) the best indie games ever made.

That would be it for this month's recap! Thank you for being a part of our journey in the world of video games, and we hope you’ll enjoy our next productions. Cheers!

We're making a new game and it's gonna be free!

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