Here is one for those who are a sucker for punishment! Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption, an impressive Boss Battler action title in the veins of the Souls series from publisher Another Indie, will be coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mac on April 25th, 2018.
Developed by Dark Star Studios, a team composed of AAA veterans including a former Ubisoft Art Director, Konami Snior Programmer and a Blizzard technical artist. The game follows Adam, a solider with a dark past, as he takes on the embodiment of the Seven Deadly Sins in a quest for redemption.
The twist? Before Adam can face each trail, he must sacrifice part of himself, resulting in a permanent debuff for the rest of his encounters. Lowering Health, depleting resources, or weakening his weapons and armour. Fortunately, the game appears to have a Rogue-Like system where he’ll have an arsenal of unlockable equipment to help compensate.
“Sinner will test players’ skill in battle, giving them plenty of options to find a playstyle that works for them even as Adam grows weaker,” says Iain Garner, Director of Developer Relations at Another Indie. “The feeling of defeating each boss and receiving more of the deep narrative is both rewarding and riveting.”
