An image of the standard version’s packaging features below:
Blasphemous drops players into a brutal action-platformer, wherein the protagonist, The Penitent One, finds themselves trapped in a cycle of death and rebirth. The Penitent One may have survived the Silent Sorrow massacre, but more grim horrors await. Ultimately, it’s up to the player to save the world from the anguish that plagues it.
Steeped in Catholicism, Blasphemous is a compelling, horror-filled experience that launched to generally positive reviews. At the very least, its narrative core has fostered interesting discourse.
Be sure to check LimitedRunGames.com on November 15th for preorders.
