Well if you’re looking for a drop-dead beautiful game, and you dig Metroidvania’s, you really should take a look at Modus’ Afterimage.
Years after the cataclysm called “The Razing” nearly brought an end to human civilization, mystic forces suddenly assaulted mankind’s remaining settlements. Seeking to investigate these attacks, an amnesiac girl named Renee bid farewell to her destroyed village and embarked on her journey to discover the truth, inexplicably setting into motion a series of events that will determine the fate of the new world.
Afterimage combines its unique, hand-drawn aesthetic with deep RPG elements and a Metroidvania-like world to challenge its players to explore and traverse the land of Engardin. Explore treacherous environments, defeat challenging bosses and uncover the secrets holding Engardin and its various inhabitants together.Modus Games press release
Afterimage will allow players to explore its world “at their own pace”, and will include 200 pieces of equipment to find, along with 6 different weapon classes and “multiple diverse” skills to unlock. Look for it in April, 2023.
