The Tarnishing of Juxtia Receives Gameplay Trailer
Publisher Mastiff has released a gameplay trailer for Actual Nerds’ dark 2D pixel-art action RPG The Tarnishing of Juxtia. The video highlights the game’s combat system, including a few of the game’s multi-phase boss encounters. The game is planned to release for PC via Steam this summer.
The Tarnishing of Juxtia puts players in the role of the eponymous goddess’ final creation. They are tasked with taking vengeance on those responsible for unleashing a plague called the Tarnishing, ultimately facing the Shadow God Drelium of Crescentpeak. Players will travel across two ruined kingdoms to restore order, customizing their play style with over 35 weapons and 18 armor sets alongside ability-granting relics. It features an Energy Rush system that encourages players to take risks by landing consecutive hits to boost stamina and mana regeneration.
