been playing blasphemous, great game so far. but jeez, its a ■■■■■■■ miserable, dark, grimy, and bloody game lol. i think they shouldve opened with “abandon all hope ye who enter here” before you get to the start up screen. the gameplay is solid, and is quite challenging if you arent careful.
you definitely cannot rush or just try to “go through the motions”, thus it can be punishing depending how far you get and then you die. you gotta be equally patient and methodical all over again, or its back to that save point and that guilt starts to stack up gettin pricey to cleanse.
overall its a great game, just depresses the ■■■■ outta me as i go along but i think that is what the devs aimed for on top of horrifying you with the death metal bosses and such lol. i mean cmon, even the beer man burned alive, and all he wanted to do was spread jovial festivities. nope, you are miserable too ■■■■■■, burn ■■■■■! lol
edit: and its to my understanding the “grievous miracle” is what caused the realm of custodia to be what it is. everyone suffering their own penance
