Kickstarter Check-In: Sin Slayers
Sin Slayers is a pixel art roguelite RPG and its developer Team Goonswarm has begun a crowdfunding campaign for the game on Kickstarter. The game is set in a dark fantasy world as players create and equip a team of heroes to explore a cursed region known simply as the Valley.
The Valley is home to those whose sins have overcome them, turning them into dark villains and cursed to wander the region. Players will aim to break the seven seals and the black magic that binds them to the Valley. Each seal is guarded by a Sin Lord, the manifestation of one of the seven deadly sins.
Players can take a part of three with them into the Valley, with multiple classes to choose from including Warriors, Defender, Priest, and Huntress. Each hero has their own skill tree, including skills that can be used outside of battle, while players can craft items and equipment. Combat is turn-based, and players will encounter randomly-generated events and quests as the traverse the world searching for the seven seals.
Sin Slayer‘s campaign has a goal of €22,000 and is set to run until May 7, 2019. Those who peldge at least €14 will receive a digital copy of the game as part of their backer rewards. Sin Slayers is initially planned for release on PC, Mac, and Linux sometime in 2019, with releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android planned for 2020.
