About this game

Developer: Ska Studios
Content Rating: Mature


A doomed sailor is shipwrecked on an uncharted island. In fog-shrouded valleys, where grinning, mossy corpses cling to rusted arms, shambling figures begin to stir. Beneath crumbling, salt-worn structures, labyrinthine passageways lead to unspeakable evil, long forgotten by man.

Salt and Sanctuary is fairly shameless in the way it replicates elements from games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, but that’s not really a bad thing when you see how it all comes together as a polished and thoroughly enjoyable final product. Sure, it would have been nice to see Ska Studios put a bit more of their own flavor and identity into the project, but let’s be honest — effectively bringing the gorgeous aesthetic and brutal challenge of From Software’s work together with classic 2D side-scrolling is quite an accomplishment of its own, and players will relish the way that marriage instills a sense of retro nostalgia like never before.

Its world is rich in ambiguity, well designed to fill up message boards with discussions on the theoretical histories of its bosses to the origins of the seven Creeds. For as much as it unabashedly borrows from Dark Souls, it’s an achievement that Ska Studios managed to give its homage an identity of its own that can be appreciated on its own merits.

Salt & Sanctuary is a brilliant piece of work that apes the Dark Souls franchise in all the right ways while still cutting its own path. It looks and plays great, and has a sense of mystery and discovery that I found more compelling than its AAA competitors. Souls fans will be right at home, but the barrier to entry here is low enough to allow the uninitiated to venture forth and take a stab.
