Salt and Sanctuary is a 2D platformer that draws much of its experience from Dark Souls series of games. In short, its 2D Souls.
The story begins with a doomed sailor who is shipwrecked on an uncharted island. In fog-shrouded valleys, where grinning, mossy corpses cling to rusted arms, shambling figures begin to stir. Beneath crumbling, salt-worn structures, labyrinthine passageways lead to unspeakable evil, long forgotten by man.
The 2D hardcore action RPG features over 600 unique items and is immediately appealing to players who love extensive character building, deep, stylized combat, rewarding exploration and challenging enemies as well as some awesome hand drawn artwork and environments. Initially developed as a single player experience, the game will now feature local Co-op and PvP for you and your favorite couch partner/adversary.
This 2D conceptualization of the Soulslike genre is the perfect thing for fans of the Soulsborne games to sink their teeth into, especially while they wait for Dark Souls 3!
