Publisher The Arcade Crew and developer Hibernian Workshop today announce that Dark Devotion, the sidescrolling action RPG depicting a society’s commitment to a macabre religion, will test the dedication of Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC owners at launch early this year. Dark Devotion has received positive praise in previews, receiving several nods from PAX East 2018, Gamescom and Bitsummit for impressive showing in early preview rounds.

Today’s platform reveal is paired with a new gameplay clip detailing a few of the pivotal battles awaiting those brave enough to prove their faith in Dark Devotion’s unforgiving temple. These fights demand flawless reflexes, keen intuition, and an unwavering determination to persevere over an army of godlike adversaries. Only by overcoming these peerless, horrifying warriors can true allegiance to Dark Devotion’s divine designer be proven, a feat well worth unending anguish to the faithful.

Dark Devotion encourages adventurers to explore and experiment with caution; traps and ghoulish enemies stand ready to punish a careless pace, and favoring the wrong weapon could bring a staunch disadvantage in its style of weighty, calculated combat.

The game’s atmospheric world draws inspiration from French gothic architecture and the works of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allen Poe, informing its labyrinth of foreboding chambers with a distinct sense of dread and danger. Meticulously crafted pixel art brings every encountered horror to life, lending a sense of beauty to Dark Devotion’s grim world despite it being plagued with suffering.
