Set in a far corner of space, Valfaris is a heavy metal infused 2D action-platformer and the next game from the team behind Unity Awards finalist, Slain: Back From Hell. Brutal combat. Deadly enemies. Stunning pixel art. Savage soundtrack. Get ready to rip the galaxy a new wormhole.

After mysteriously vanishing from galactic charts, the fortress of Valfaris has suddenly reappeared in the orbit of a dying sun. Once a self-contained paradise, the grandiose citadel now plays host to an ever-growing darkness.

Therion, a fearless and proud son of Valfaris, returns to his home to uncover the truth of its doomed fate and to challenge the arcane evil at its very heart.



Key features
  • Skulls in space! Gore in space! Metal in space!
  • Savagely reduce foes to piles of gibs with an array of brutal weaponry
  • Explore a diverse range of tainted environments as you venture ever deeper into the dark world of Valfaris
  • Dominate ranks of deadly enemies and bosses, from the weird to the grotesque (and some that are just grotesquely weird)
  • Gorge your eyes on devastatingly awesome pixel art hand-crafted by Andrew Gilmour
  • Feel the power of a seismic soundtrack by extreme metaller and former Celtic Frost guitarist, Curt Victor Bryant
  • Forged from the ground-up by the team behind cult hit Slain: Back From Hell

I just hope they've improved the gameplay because what i've played from Slain and Valfaris (quite some time ago) just didn't feel all that great.

Slain iu remember being quite a mess on release , not sure how they patched it up myself , but heard good things
I played it recently and enjoyed it quite a bit. It's really challenging though. Generally that's fine and feels fair, but there were 2 or 3 sections I remember that were a huge difficulty spike and were exremely frustrating to the point where I CheatEngined my way through them. (None of the bosses though, the main issue those section had that the checkpoints were way further apart than anywhere else in the game).
I hope that's better in their new game.
