'Skeletal Avenger' Gets Steam Early Access Date - Screens

by Rainier on April 6, 2021 @ 10:38 a.m. PDT

Skeletal Avenger is a hack'n'slash reverse roguelite with decapitating special moves.

Crawl through the dungeons, gain new gear and devastating perks. Avenge a thousand wrongs in a reverse roguelite where the skeletal avengers ascend from the depths to demand a payment in blood!

What does reverse roguelite mean? In Skeletal Avenger it means instead of delving deeper into a dungeon, you ascend from the depths towards the surface where your target is waiting. Every re-animated skeleton has a grudge to settle with someone: A target for revenge - a nemesis.

Instead of playing until dying, you play until you or your nemesis dies. You gain bigger rewards if the quest ends in completing the revenge. If you die, your revenge fails - but there'll be always more grudges to settle.

One of the core features we love are the self-decapitating special moves: The avenger will remove his head and use it as a weapon! What the head does depends on the head gear and there'll be plenty of variation. The head might explode or it might vomit necrotic slime. Or maybe it rolls like a bowling ball.

So, prepare for an outrageously fun and fresh hack'n'slash experience.

Key Features:

  • Fast-paced ultra-responsive hack'n'slash action
  • Decapitate yourself to do special attacks: Your hat determines the effect
  • Reverse roguelite: Ascend from the depths and exact revenge for victory - repeat.
  • Endless amount of quests to complete - each one ending in sweet revenge
  • Gain rewards and equip your avengers with increasingly powerful gear
  • Single player and 2-4 player local co-op

Skeletal Avenger is coming to PC Steam Early Access on April 28, 2021, with full release planned for PC (Steam) and current/next-gen consoles. 10tons has plans to support several next-gen console features like high resolution rendering, high refresh rates, and more.
