Nine SolsPlatform: Windows, macOSGenre: Action, AdventureDeveloper: RedCandleGamesPublisher: RedCandleGamesRelease: 05/29/2024Nine Sols, a fast-paced 2D action game inspired in large part by Sekiro, will be debuting on May 29, developer RedCandleGames has revealed. Described as a lore-rich soulslike with “Sekiro-lite” deflection-based combat, Nine Sols will chronicle the journey of the vengeful hero Yi across the land of an ancient alien race as he attempts to slay the nine powerful rulers of this realm. Offering challenging gameplay focused on the art of well-timed deflections, the game will also introduce players to a “Taopunk” universe that mixes cyberbunk aesthetics with elements of Taoism and eastern mythology – it’s a lovely combination, all in all, and back when I tried the game’s demo, I found it to be an absolutely rock-solid experience with fluid combat and a fascinatingly unique world. Here’s the trailer announcing the launch date:

The demo, by the way, is still available to try on Steam, so do give it a look.
