Dark Souls-inspired Metroidvania Blood Alloy has jetpacks


4:00 AM on 09.11.2013



A former Harmonix developer is working on Blood Alloy, an urban sci-fi styled Metroidvania that takes cues from Dark Souls, Hotline Miami, Vanquish, and more. The latter is wonderfully evident in the protagonists' showy cartwheels and neat jetpack. 

You play as, "a young female amnesiac who regains consciousness in a lab and discovers that she’s been forcibly converted into a cyborg." So it's like a reluctant Samus. Or reverse The Other M. Rather than exploring, you find everything wants to make you dead, so you're tasked with making yourself not dead by making everything else dead.

The game, in pre-alpha, already looks pretty tight and hectic. PC, Mac, and Android versions are planned. Console and handheld release is being looked into. You can check out its Kickstarter for more information. Make sure to check out the rad music samples.

Strafe is the goriest, most realistic shooter of 1996

I am tempted to just post the email we got about Strafe (stylized as STRAFE®), because it is a masterpiece of videogame marketing. With phrases like "not for the faint of heart" and "we understand if our game is too real...more

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...more
