The Souls of Yore is a very promising 2D top-down action adventure game in which you play as a mysterious hooded adventurer who roams the land, batting enemies and collecting new abilities and weaponry.
Visually and gameplay-wise, The Souls of Yore is a little reminiscent of Hyper Light Drifter (which is no bad thing). You roam the land, battling a variety of enemies, amassing cool new abilities and weaponry, allowing you to switch up your tactics depending on what type of enemies your attacking.
There’s not much info about The Souls of Yore‘s plot yet, but even in these early stages of development it impresses with it’s beautiful pixel art animation and fun exploration based gameplay. It’s still very much a work of progress, so doesn’t have a soundtrack yet, but the ambient wind punctuated by your sword slashes sets a nice atmosphere for now. We can’t wait to see more of this mysterious action adventure as the current build shows a lot of promise, and we’d love to know more about it’s mysterious hooded adventurer.
Note: During testing, we noticed that some fonts (especially menus) weren’t displaying properly. If you have any issues with the menus, just keep clicking the top option to take you into the game. Also, it’s worth noting that the dash/jump button isn’t Spacebar, you must press the middle mouse button or ‘X’
