Death’s Door is my kind of Soulslike, and I just can’t get enough of it

Listen, folks, I’m going to hold up my hands and tell you something shocking. I don’t get Dark Souls. I’ve tried to play FromSoftware’s much lauded masterpieces several times over the years, but I’m simply not good enough at them to find them enjoyable. No matter how much you try and tell me about the sweet satisfaction you feel after finally beating a boss on the 57th attempt, I’ve come to realise I simply don’t have the time or the patience to see it through. I’m not sure I ever will, either. It’s the same reason I tend to veer…

Death’s Door review: a sturdy and often funny fable about death

If grimdark is a genre, then so must be cutedark. Death’s Door glides into this camp on gossamer wings. It’s got Hollow Knight‘s dimples but not its teeth. It’s lighter, an appropriately feathery game. For long stretches it is refreshingly untaxing with a few challenging battles. This lightness is its strength. The soulslike undertones are mostly a facade and it is less inspired by Lordran than it is by Hyrule. There are fluffy puzzles, curious dungeons and cute characters with JiGgLiNg diALoGuE tExT. I foresee any Nintendo likers out there immediately thinking: “I’ll get this on my Switch”. Sadly, you…

Here’s every game announced at Devolver’s E3 2021 show

Devolver Digital didn’t disappoint when it came to a madcap, off-the-wall showcase at E3 2021 – but alongside the weird narrative, the publisher announced plenty of games, too.Headlining the announcements, and acting as a sort-of running joke through the whole bizarre experience, was the publisher’s jab at the increasingly popular trend of treating games as a service, and cajoling the player into signing up for costly repeat payments in order to gain access to titles.The satire is framed as the “Devolver MaxPass+ Showcase | Monetization as a Service,” and you can take a look at teh intro to it below.Watch…

Death’s Door is the new boss battler from the makers of Titan Souls

Untitled Goose Game cast you as the naughty resident of a parochial village, and it only makes sense that a game in which you play as a crow sends you into some strange demon dimension. So it is in Death’s Door, in which you control a crow trying to retrieve their “assigned soul” by battling beasts and demigods in a “realm untouched by death.” It’s from the developers of Titan Souls, and there’s an announcement trailer below.
