hello,

thanks for your message, here's an extract from a KS update that our designer wrote, enjoy!

No jump:

I watched a lot of Youtubers playing, the fact that there was no jump questioned a lot of them.

I think this choice is interesting and crucial for the overall ambiance for multiple reasons.

  • Indeed, this is unusual for a 2D โ€œplatformerโ€. The feeling of โ€œincapacityโ€ is here, right at the beginning, the player has to be on guard. This is the very first warning.
  • Including an slow jump such as the one in the first Prince of Persia crossed my mind. However, I want the progression to be realistic and credible in some way. Seeing our dear hero jumping at will wouldnโ€™t have - at all - made the same ambiance and game feel.
  • I want to focus the game on confrontations and battles (adding the fact that every door closes behind you, it adds a lot on the feeling of insecurity - This is crucial). Technically a jump is a way to flee and avoid the danger, it gives a feeling of control and power. In Dark Devotion, we want you to feel hopeless.
  • Some of our players think that a 2D game without a jump cuts a side of the exploration. Keep in mind that we thought everything before, and these constraints are made to give a precise game feel - not another. Other mechanics are here to replace it in a constructive manner anyway, such as ladders, platforms (world1), geysers (world 2), teleporters (world 3) ...

Hey Mikey, thanks a lot for your feedbacks and support. I'm watching your video! <3 <3 <3

Explore and contemplate the insides of a fallen Temple. Measure your value and your bravery through the deep shadow.



Take part into rageous and bloody fights in which your opponents won't do you any favours. Be prepared to face foes that you won't forget. And remember, enemies as well as the Temple itself will want to strike you down : each and every fight is a duel to the death in which the slightest error may cost you your life.


Everything you need to know and the demo are there:
