E3 2019 Trailer for Side-Scrolling Shooter Valfaris

Steel Mantis and Big Sugar released a new trailer for their upcoming heavy metal infused 2D action-platformer, Valfaris.

In addition to the new trailer above, the developers showed off a prop of the Bringer of Mayhem, one of the game’s over-the-top sci-fi weapons.

Players can also sign up for a chance to get into the game’s upcoming beta.

Valfaris will be launching later this year for Windows PC (via Steam), PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.

Here’s a rundown of the game:


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
