Blasphemous: Top 3 Reasons Why You Should Be Excited!


Blasphemous is a beautifully crafted indie game that should be on your radar. The following are my personal top 3 reasons why you should be excited!


  1.    Story and Setting

In Blasphemous, you take on the role of The Penitent One and are tasked with traversing a world destroyed by The High Pontiff. You are the last sole survivor of your group, and you have no choice but to battle a legion of undead high priests. Consider me invested!


I have played countless indie games in my life and nothing disappoints me more than when a developer places little importance in world building. Characterization, lore and even background information are all factors that keep me heavily invested in a game. The developers are going beyond what I typically see in lower budgeted games.


  1.    Music


No more 8-bit or 16- bit chiptunes, Blasphemous is introducing a dark and melancholy soundtrack to complement its intense story and setting. Carlos Viola helms the score for the game and combines a haunting guitar riff with the boastfulness of deep beating drums.

Do not get me wrong, I love 8-bit and 16-bit soundtracks. Shovel Knight has some of the best music in the indie scene, but Blasphemous is seemingly doing away with that and I love it.

Listen to it here!


  1.    Gameplay

Masterful. That is what comes to mind when looking at all the hard work the team is putting into for the combat. You get your traditional 3-strike button mash, but what takes Blasphemous to the next level are all the extra details.

Boost your abilities with in-game power-ups and slaughter enemies as you chain up your attacks in order to unlock your best ability: The Martyr’s Excommunication mode.

When I say slaughter your enemies, I really mean it. I can only imagine chaining up a satisfying combo with one enemy and timing my actions in order to land a hit on another.




Blasphemous is slated to make its undying arrival sometime next year.
