It’s been a while since we’ve had any updates on The Game Kitchen’s Blasphemous, which had demolished its Kickstarter goal back in May. The team has been hard at work since then getting a new protoype ready for the end of the year.
In a small Kickstarter update, the post details some of the things we can expect in the prototype due at the end of the year, including a wider range of movement and combat mechanics, a dynamic sountrack and the first boss fight. There’s also a cool-looking animation for saving at the ‘Prieu-Dieu’ Save Point.
In addition, the team has released a peek at their process for creating some of the pixel-art impact effects used in the game. It’s a lengthy 19 minutes, and is basically just timelapse footage of artist Raul Vivar working in Photoshop. Not entirely exciting for the non-artist types, but for those who are inclined, it’s pretty cool.
Blasphemous is due out on PlayStation 4, XBox One, Nintendo Switch and PC November 2018.
