Salt and Sanctuary is a 2D platformer that draws much of its inspiration from From Software's 'Souls' series of video games. The game is frequently described as "2D Dark Souls" and is widely considered the 'Souls-like' game that most accurately captures the essence of the Souls series.
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.
Salt and Sanctuary is a hardcore 2D action RPG, featuring over 600 unique items, an extensive character customization system, complex, stylized combat, rewarding exploration, and challenging enemies, as well as a hand-drawn art style lent to the characters and environments. Initially developed as a single player experience, the game now features local Co-op and PvP for you and your favorite couch partner/adversary.
This 2D conceptualization of the 'Souls-like' genre is the perfect thing for fans of the Soulsborne games to sink their teeth into!
