Kickstarter campaign for Blood Alloy promises a Dark Souls and Vanquish inspired metroidvania


By on September 23, 2013 at 2:16 pm

Some really cool looking games pop up on Kickstarter, and Blood Alloy is one of them. Currently being developed for Windows, Mac and Ouya, Blood Alloy fits into one of my favourite genres – the Metroidvania or exploratory platformer – and developer Suppressive Fire Games have cited their inspirations as games like Dark Souls, Vanquish, Hotline Miami and Turrican.

The project is looking for $50,000 – of which they have currently made $11,710. A DRM-free copy of Blood Alloy will set you back $15, while $40 will get you access to the closed beta, soundtrack and artbook as well. Suppressive Fire also recently announced their stretch goals – interestingly, if the project reaches $60,000 they will also release Blood Alloy on the PS4, PS Vita and Wii U, with backers receiving a key of their choice.

You can back Blood Alloy and read more about the project via the official Kickstarter page and if you’re worried they are just claiming Dark Souls inspiration for cred, the developer has released a new video showcasing the game’s Dark Souls based stamina elements, which you can watch embedded below. Personally the game reminds me of Iji, albeit a good deal nicer looking. Looks aside, if Blood Alloy can be half as awesome as Iji I will be thrilled.

honestly, even though you’d think being able to aim properly would be a good thing (whether it be with your mouse or an analog controller), for me I actually prefer having to jump and shoot, or hold R to aim diagonally up. It just feels better.
