Soul Survivors Announced

Stingbot Games announces Soul Survivors, a survival Roguelite coming to Early Access on Steam in Q1 2023. The Announcement Trailer shows off just how much this concept has advanced since the 1970s. A first chance to check this out will come next month, when a playable demo is released during the Steam Next Fest, which begins on October 3rd. Here are some details:
Suit up and head into combat against waves of enemies threatening to overrun unprepared champions in the Lands of Chaos. Weave in and out of progressively more challenging foes, auto-attacking to cut a path forward and absorbing souls from felled creatures to level up and acquire powerful new abilities. Cast down legions of shambling zombies, corrupt mages, and giants in tense showdowns across richly detailed pixel-art stages.

Select one of two character classes available at Early Access launch, with 6 planned for v1.0. Charge into enemy hordes as the powerful Bogatyr, or use the realm’s undead legions as the Necromancer. In Soul Survivors, each character class features distinct active and passive abilities to provide for wildly differing playstyles. Spend hard-earned gold accrued during sessions to unlock persistent Talent Tree upgrades for different characters, boosting stats affording even more firepower in subsequent sessions.

Alter a character’s auto-attack in dynamic ways by spending experience-granting souls. Transform Bogatyr’s standard sword into an AOE-inducing hammer with the Iron Smash ability or upgrade to the Butcher’s Blade to deliver powerful overhead strikes capable of cleaving through waves of deadly foes. Experiment with different character builds across numerous runs to create the perfect champion capable of outlasting thousands of enemies and challenging malicious bosses at the end of each stage, like the hulking Flesh Golem.
