Blasphemous Key Art

If you’re an indie developer and you want your game to have the best possible start in life, then teaming up with the renowned indie publishers at Team17 is certainly a good way to go. And that is what is happening here today as Team17 and The Game Kitchen announce a new punishing action platformer will be coming to Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC later in 2019. That game? Blasphemous.

Due to arrive later in 2019, Blasphemous will bring brutal pixel perfect combat to Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC as it sees you take on the role of the Penitent One in the dark gothic land of Cvstodia – a land where a foul curse known as The Miracle has fallen.

Blasphemous will allow you the chance to explore these nightmarish world full of twisted religion, discovering the many secrets hidden deep inside. It’ll also let you use devastating combos and brutal executions to smite the hordes of grotesque monsters and titanic bosses, as they attempt to tear you from limb from limb.

Further to that will be the opportunity to locate and equip relics, rosary beads and prayers that call on the powers of the heavens, aiding you in your quest to break your eternal damnation. And by the sounds of it, you’ll need every little bit of help you can get should you wish to succeed in Blasphemous.

Blasphemous will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC later in 2019. For now, check out the trailer below and then hold tight until more details – including a release date, no doubt – arrive. With Team17 behind it though, chances are it’ll be a bit good… just like the likes of My Time at Portia, Yoku’s Island Express and Planet Alpha for instance.
