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.

Hello

Kuba from My Next Games here again. It’s almost an end of May and so it’s time for another update :). It’s been another month of weekly updates and improvements to Soulblight for us. As we make our game systematically bigger and better we thought it would be cool for the process to be a bit more interactive. We‘ve decided to set up weekly polls in which you can decide on what we will add to the game next. With this purpose in mind we’ve reactivated our Soulblight Inner Circle Discord channel ( www.discord.gg/trP7mPE ) So far you’ve chosen for us to add these two armor sets:

And the Superstitious taint:

This week we have another armor set. Which one should we add? Light Estaut armor (right) or Studded Armor with passive damage(left)?

Vote on our discord channel: www.discord.gg/trP7mPE

But this is not the end of community events we have in store. Starting this week we will be runningSoulblight Weekly Challenges as well. Here's how it will work:

  • From now on every Friday evening we will be resetting "This Round" leaderboard
  • The Person at the top of the board at the moment of the reset will be announced the winner
  • The winner of the challenge will be receiving a little reword that we will announce at the start of every round

This week you are fighting for a game made by our good friends from Bulbware - Bulb Boy:

Ok that would be all for this month update :)

Cya around,

Kuba

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