    As an aside, the studio’s previous game Jotun is available for free today on Steam and GOG.


    Got burnt-out on metroidvanias, but this looks just too good to resist.

    Read that as “Lovecraftian Metroidvania Tsundere” and my mind went off the literal deep end from there. The Cthulhu in a schoolgirl uniform saying “it’s not like I want to reclaim the world” while blushing kind of deep end.

    Definitely getting the game, but I’m a bit worried that things may get a bit hectic on screen and that you may lose track of your character.

    This is the first time I heard about this game and it looks right up my alley. I think I may take the plunge when it releases, it looks surprisingly good.

    Also, get the GoG version. No DRM and unlike the Steam version, the GoG’s free promo is not region-locked.
