Dark Soulslike platformer slices its way onto the Xbox One.Don’t worry, you can bring a friend as well.
Salt and Sanctuary is a 2D hand-drawn platformer for the independent developer Ska Studios, that’s been compared to the punishing game Dark Souls. Which isn’t a bad thing in the least. Like they say, imitation is the greatest flattery.In Salt and Sanctuary, you start being washed ashore after your ship is wreaked by a sea-creature. You land on a weird island where an old man bestows the mantle of the Saltborn and off you set to find out the mysteries on the land.Over twenty bosses and vicious enemies and monsters stand ready to end your journey.
“Xbox holds a special place in our hearts because of how important The Dishwasher was to us personally and for Ska Studios as a company, so we’re glad to make this homecoming happen. Everyone who emailed us demanding an Xbox One port, will now be able to finally enjoy our creepy creation!” – Michelle and James Silva, co-creators at Ska Studios
Finding and upgrading weaponry and armor will assist in your survival and victory, even better knowing that some armaments struggle against certain foes will prove successful. Learn spells like Fire and Sky spells to scorch and shock the opposition and enhance the Saltborn with a massive skill tree that expands as the game progresses.
Solve the mystery of the island but prepare to dive back in through New Game+ and Challenge Modes, such as no-blocking and permadeath modes that add an extra degree of challenge. Or, hand an Xbox One Wireless Controller to a friend and work together in local co-op to conquer the island.
Salt and Sanctuary releases digitally for Xbox One for $17.99 on Feb. 6.
