Prepare to take on the role of an old God and command all kinds of unfathomable horrors as Sea Salt arrives on Xbox One, encouraging you to punish anyone who dares to defy you in this action strategy hybrid.
As the latest title from indie duo Y/CJ/Y (best known for The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human), Sea Salt sees players become Dagon, the old God, the eldritch force of the sea. You must collect, summon and control an unruly swarm of nightmarish creatures – featuring 19 different units – leading them like a hive mind through a gothic dark fantasy. Fear and the element of surprise from advantageous positions will be used as weapons when taking vengeance on religious figures, cunning hunters and tenacious bosses on the way to claiming the true sacrifice.
In addition to the story-focused campaign mode, there’s also a Tower Defence offering, which has the followers of Dagon on the attack. The round starts with NPC humans setting up guards and defences around a map, then it’s up to you to try and destroy it all for the glory of the old God. Furthermore, different maps will feature different win conditions and special enemies like those seen in the story mode.
Should the action strategy experience of Sea Salt seem like the game you need right now, it’s currently available for £12.49 on the Xbox Store. Be sure to let us know what you think if you end up checking it out!
Sea Salt is an action strategy hybrid, in which you are an Old God summoning unfathomable horrors to blight the human lands. You will have your sacrifice, and humanity will pay for denying you what you are owed. Summoning a tide of minions, your army will emerge from the sea to take vengeance on the religious figures who have dared to defy you, and anyone else that stands in your way. When humanity prayed you were willing to offer them fair winds for their fishing vessels, and they enjoyed the riches and prosperity you provided. They knew the price, but cowardice overtook their faith when the time came to collect. The bishop of your church defied your will, but when the horrors of the deep emerge from the gloom he will beg for the mercy of a swift death.
