I heard about this game on another forum, decided to buy it because they said it was a "Metroidvania". So far I'm only in the first dungeon but it seems pretty good. Just a few notes though before you buy:

- the graphics are of course, "retro". Looks MSX-tier but with some nifty effects here and there, like shadows and characters passing in front of each other.
- don't expect much hand-holding. Though compared to actual games from the era it visually represents, it's very hand-holdey.
- there's no autosaving. The game isn't "hard" per se, but it is one of those titles where you can spend an hour exploring and end up dying + having to restart. Beware!

People who calls things "Metroidvania" are stupid. That term was describing a CASTLEVANIA game that played like Metroid. So are you saying this game plays like Castlevania playing like Metroid?

Instead of just being, you know, like Metroid?

Read everything, listen to everybody, believe nothing, until you can prove it through your own research. For that is the true mark of intelligence.

Steam. Where else? The only place I buy, unless it comes with a Steam key from elsewhere.

No Steam, no buy.

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Oh it is on sale on Steam. Strange as it doesn't appear on the specials list:

I figure Steam is the "default" place to look for game releases, sales, etc... typically people will only point out the seller when it's NOT Steam.

Just want to bump this topic because the game is INCREDIBLY good. Honestly it's a shame the game isn't talked about more often. This is what I would call a hidden gem, since I rarely hear anyone mention it.
