20 Minutes Of Death’s Gambit, A Very Dark Souls Side-Scroller

I was wondering if we’d written about Death’s Gambit before, and all I could find was a 2014 post about how much I loved a GIF I saw of it. That GIF is still cool, but the actual game looks good, too.

Yesterday at E3, the game’s lead designer Jean Canellas played through a demo on the PlayStation stream:

More than a little Souls in there, with an additional helping of Castlevania. I don’t think we’ve quite reached a saturation point on “indie games that are basically Dark Souls,” so Death’s Gambit should slip in ahead of the cutoff point. It’ll be out sometime in 2017.
