WayForward's The Mummy Demastered looks fantastic


I'm so glad this is still on the way

Truth be told, I forgot WayForward was adapting The Mummy (2017) into a delightful-looking metroidvania. I never saw the movie and possibly never will. But this game? This game looks rad.

Demastered is a licensed title that's unafraid to branch out from its source material, and thank goodness for that. In that way, it reminds me of one of my favorite rentals as a kid: Hook for SNES.

"As an elite agent in the monster-hunting Prodigium organization, you must use a variety of weapons, upgrades, and mysterious artifacts to defend mankind against the supernatural hordes of Princess Ahmanet," reads the game's summary. "Your Prodigium unit is already on the scene, but HQ lost contact with them hours ago. Only by exploring tombs, forests, abandoned tunnels, and the cursed streets of London will you discover the fate of your allies."

It's a blend of Metroid, Castlevania, and Contra from WayForward. Enough said.
