Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption, the boss battler from publisher Another Indie and the AAA veterans at developer Dark Star Game Studios, is available now on Discord, which launched its store today. Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will launch on Oct. 18 and Steam fans can enter the fray in Q1 2019.
Join Adam on a journey through a macabre world set to a cinematic and haunting soundtrack to confront his sins in the form of monstrous entities from his past. Each of these bosses holds a powerful grudge and redemption comes at the cost of Adam’s strength, health and weapons as he must sacrifice some of his vitality or equipment in order to enter each boss’ arena.
Besting the specters of his former life requires as much strategy as it does skill, and mastering the game is no easy feat. The bosses can be confronted in any order, but with each fight, the challenge grows and only the most adept will vanquish the manifestations of the seven deadly sins and open the way to the final boss.
A New Game+ mode adds replayability through unlockable equipment and a variety of game modes. Take on foes with only no weapon, dealing less damage and giving up the ability to parry, or wail on them with twin hammers to see all the endings more quickly. Up the ante in Nightmare Mode, a boss rush featuring all the monstrosities in rapid succession for the ultimate test of skill.
“Our aim with Sinner was to provide a blend of difficulty and fairness that will satisfy hardcore gamers whether they have time to play for long sessions or only in smaller chunks,” says Iain Garner, director of developer relations, Another Indie. “The gameplay additions in New Game+ give the game vast replayability through greater choices so people can customize the challenge to be exactly as hard as they want”, says the developers.
Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is now available for $18.99 in English, Spanish, German, French, Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Russian via Discord.
