Garshasp: The Monster Slayer does what it says on the tin


2:40 PM on 04.20.2011



I was reading Rock, Paper, Shotgun as I am wont to do, and I saw this trailer for Garshasp: The Monster Slayer. It's a third-person action/adventure in the same vein as God of War, and it'll be coming to Steam and GamersGate soon. 

It certainly looks to be of the "cheap and cheerful" variety, but the real interesting note is that the game's based on Iranian/Persian mythology. You don't see something like that every day. I wouldn't expect any great cultural revelation though, as the focus seems weighted toward the slaying of monsters. 

Y'know, because it's about a monster slayer.
