'Unsouled' Publishing Rights Picked Up By Neowiz - Screens & Trailer

Unsouled is an action/RPG with a deep and melancholic story told in between intense and highly-stylised combat, which is set in an atmospheric, destructible 3D pixel-art world.

A man and a woman - both human, both with the monstrous ability to absorb the souls of the dead. Their power gives them choice. Choice to subjugate the weak or to protect them, choice to destroy or to create, choice to rule or serve.

Their choice was not the same.

Discover how they use this power with different intent through environmental storytelling, where more is revealed by interacting with the world around you.

Fighting the creatures that are trying to stop you on your journey is as challenging as it is rewarding. While it only takes a couple of hits to send you back to the last statue you rested at, one well-timed parry can lead into a devestating counter-attack that lets you chain your slashes onto nearby foes in a spectacular flurry.

Ruins, mausoleums, caves. Lifeless places. The world of Unsouled might seem dark and melancholic at first, but all the more overwhelming are the moments of silence and peace when the camera zooms out as you uncover one of the game's lookout points with a glorious panoramic view over its surpisingly lush environment.


Announced back in 2019 by PQube and scheduled for 2020, there seems to have been a change of publisher, now NEOWIZ, with a projected release in Q2 2021.

As a fan of hardcore action games myself, Unsouled is the game that I’ve always dreamed of playing” said Jin Sub Jung, Head of Megusta Game. “I’m really looking forward to sharing it with everyone and hope they enjoy the stylish 2d action.”

A playable demo is also available.

Key Features:

  • Ultra-violent combat: Counter your opponent and strike, using sword slashes, dashes, and soul powers in a graceful combat system that rewards player dedication. With a variety of unlockable abilities and an additional Training mode, you can learn to quickly dispatch enemies with a lethal arsenal of powerful chain combo attacks.
  • Face your fate: Set in a beautiful but haunting world, Unsouled is an atmospheric Action-RPG about a mysterious power used with deadly purpose. Featuring highly-stylized combat that’s fast-paced and rewarding, there’s less focus on puzzling so no time is wasted on finding the way forward on your journey. Follow the path of fate, and face the challenges that lie ahead in this new game.
  • Unravel the tale: Follow the story of a boy and girl with fate intertwined, brought together through a shared ability to absorb the souls of the dead. Discover how they use this power with different intent through environmental storytelling, where more is revealed by interacting with the world around you.
  • Strengthen your resolve: Absorb the souls of the fallen and use them to grow your power. Enhance strength, learn new skills, and improve combat abilities.
  • Explore detailed environments: Played from a top-down perspective but developed in 3D, Unsouled has a richly detailed world brought to life by a distinctive pixel art-style and ambient audio design.
  • Into the abyss: Unsouled's combat system is deep and hard. But there is the abyss. You can design your own combo and practice combo trials.

Unsouled is coming to PC (Steam) in Q2 2021, with consoles to follow at a later time.
