[Update]: Blasphemous has now made its way to both PC and consoles alongside some rather solid reviews!

To say that the Kickstarter campaign for Blasphemous has been a success would be one hell of an understatement given that it currently sits on $228,215, over four times its original goal! And honestly, its easy to see why. Even in its earliest incarnation the dark and brutal hack & slash is oozing with atmosphere and style, which combined with the seemingly Castlevania inspired action makes for a rather intriguing game.

Since much of Blasphemous relies on the visuals and sound design I would be doing it a massive disservice by simply explaining what exactly it is, so allow me to instead show you the recently posted Kickstarter trailer. It has a fair bit of length to it, and almost no pointless fluff, so it should give you a pretty good idea of what Blasphemous is all about:

The current release date for Blasphemous is pinned on November 2018, though given the amount of stretch goals unlocked I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being slightly delayed in order to ensure all of the content actually makes it to the game. If you would like to learn more about the gameplay or story I would suggest heading over to the official website. And finally, here's a couple of extremely stylish images:
