About

Blasphemous is an action-platformer that combines the fast-paced, skilled combat of a hack-n-slash game with a deep and evocative narrative core, delivered through exploration of a huge universe comprised of non-linear levels.

Immerse yourself in a dark fantasy nightmare that has been constructed PIXEL BY PIXEL by our committed artists.

Features:
- Explore a huge land, a universe that feels as open as it is oppressive, delivered through a non-sequential level design that puts you in control of where to go next.
- We are putting great focus on achieving a very satisfying combat mechanics with very responsive control, smooth animations and lots of blood and gore.
- Handmade pixel art, with large sprites and super smooth animations, created pixel by pixel, frame by frame.
- Evocative narrative: Blasphemous’ levels are not just platforms; they tell a story to those who are interested, but don't get in the way if you just want the action.
- Find your personal combat style by equipping rosary beads, or carrying around relics that boost your abilities.

Story:
Set in the savage land of Orthodoxia, a place where religion is of the utmost importance in the eyes of the populace, superstition runs amok, and churches outnumber people two to one. You will find yourself in this hellish territory in the wake of the Age of Corruption.

Blasphemous reviews and comments

One of the best metroidvania games out there, it has a complex story, incomparable pixel art, excellent gameplay, wonderful level design, a bit difficult and extremely fun. Blasphemous has an amazing setting and atmoshpere which are acompanied with tons of lore and backstory. The new DLC: The stir of dawn (Which came out one year later and it's free) adds an impressive amount of content like new areas, new aspects of the story, new bosses, new enemies and even improves areas from the original game. To me, this shows how much the development team cares about this game and the community, and thats one of the many reasons why I support this game and you should too. Definitely one of my favorite games and a MUST have.
«Blew my mind»
«Constantly dying and enjoy it»
This game is absolutely beautiful. A stellar artstyle, a fantastic soundtrack, an interesting setting and fantastic combat and exploration.
«Blew my mind»
«OST on repeat»
Holy fuck this was addictive. 
«Just one more turn»
«Can’t stop playing»
A sleeper hit.
The best Metroidvania I've played so far. Beatiful artstyle, good combat with great bosses and a great atmosphere.
«Blew my mind»
«Underrated»
I was told this was more Dark Souls than Castlevania, but I'm glad I took the chance because it really is more Castlevania than anything, down to the relatively limited number of upgrades similar to Symphony of the Night. Yeah, there's a dodge, flask-based healing, and enemies only respawn upon death or save, but the world design, combat, and upgrade system are way more Castlevania (not even Metroid - Castlevania) than anything else.

I wish one of the regular-person-sized bosses were another of the big bosses and the mechanic limiting you to only three upgrades at a time felt pointless, but man other than that I blew through this game and loved every second. Maybe I can just relate to it a bit more as I was raised Catholic, but I love that it took that classic Castlevania setting, gave it some Dark Souls cyclical desperation, but brought it all together with themes of Catholic guilt and penitence with some wild lore attached. What a great way to take that overplayed "dark Medieval fantasy" setting and make it something completely new, down to the design of trash mobs.
Solid Metroidvania with Soulslike bits and cool world/lore.  I like it >:)
