Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption belongs in the ever-growing category of games inspired by the Souls series. In other words, it features a dark and harrowing tale where very few characters will see a happy ending, a variety of unique weapons and playstyles to toy around with, as well as a whole bunch of bosses that will repeatedly smash you into the ground until you finally learn how to contend with them.

Where Sinner stands out from the rest, however, is in its rather unique approach to fighting bosses. Instead of constantly growing stronger and stronger, each boss fight will make you slightly weaker as you need to sacrifice a part of yourself in order to atone for some currently unknown sins. There will still be progression in the form of new equipment and weapons, so I must admit I'm quite curious to see how the developers will balance the whole system as its unlike anything I've seen so far!

Speaking of which, allow me to share with you one of the most recent trailers. It doesn't feature a whole lot of gameplay, but it should still give you a decent idea of what to expect from Sinner, and perhaps more interestingly, what the overall atmosphere is going to be like. Have a look:

If all of this seems like something you would love to mess around with, you'll be glad to hear that Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption will be coming to Windows, Mac, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Switch this April 25th. [Update]: Sinner has now been delayed. You can expect to see it on all platforms in Q3 2018.

You can learn more, or just follow its development moving forward, by heading over to Steam. And finally, let me send you off with a couple of images, just to help set the mood. Enjoy!
