(Last Updated On: August 1, 2017)

Alumni from Blizzard, Konami and Ubisoft have formed together under the banner of Dark Star Game Studios. The developers are working on a game called Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption. It’s a Soulsborne-inspired game, taking some of the core elements that From Software popularized in their third-person hack-and-slash RPGs, while also infusing it with their own visual and gameplay flair.

Iain Garner, the director of developer relations at publishing outfit Another Indie, commented about the new title, and its hero Adam, a fallen soldier who finds himself on an perilous quest to save his soul, stating in the press release…

“Sinner is not another game where the player grows stronger to fight the final boss on equal footing,” “Adam will struggle with his physical prowess as well as his internal need for atonement, and his ultimate test will be his most challenging.”

Players will have to battle through various levels, facing off against eight “abhorrent” boss creatures, each one themed after the deadly sins from the Judeo-Christian theology.

You can see what the gameplay, combat and what some of the bosses look like thanks to announcement trailer being posted up for public consumption. You can check it out below.

The environments look really well done; very artistically morose.

The very light black outline on the characters helps make them contrast with the environments, so you can very readily see a lot of the details in the characters and how they stand out with their unique designs.

The art is also very well complimented by the extremely smooth frame-rates and very well put together animation system. The blending applied via the Unreal Engine 4 makes the combat and movement look really smooth and very tactically seamless, not unlike Dark Souls or Bloodborne, but based on the trailer it looks as if the 60fps really helps make the combat and movement come across as far smoother than From Software’s titles.

Not a whole lot of people on the YouTube page are excited about the game since they feel it’s just another Dark Souls clone.

Others are willing to wait and give it a try, or simply waiting for more details before making a snap decision.

A demo of Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption will be available and on display at GamesCom this year in hall 3, stand D-01B at booth 370. They will then follow-up its appearance from GamesCom in Cologne, Germany, with the first American debut at the PAX West convention set to take place between September 1st and September 4th.

Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is due for release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2018.

    We’re gamer’s there is no redeeming our soul!

    […] facing off against eight “abhorrent” boss creatures, each one themed after the deadly sins from the Judeo-Christian theology.

    There are only seven mortal sins.

    • The eighth boss is a special boss.

      • Daniel Ream

        What, “Misogyny”?

        • Probably “Masculinity”.

    • Phasmatis75

      1 Gula (gluttony)
      2 Luxuria/Fornicatio (lust, fornication)
      3 Avaritia (avarice/greed)
      4 Superbia (pride, hubris)
      5 Tristitia (sorrow/despair/despondency)
      6 Ira (wrath)
      7 Vanagloria (vainglory)
      8 Acedia (sloth)

      No there’s 8. Other sects went higher, I believe there is one with 15 deadly sins as well, but I wasn’t able to track down that list.

      • Daniel Ream

        No, there are seven in Catholic theology. Your list is the eight “evil thoughts”, which were reduced to a standard list of seven by Gregory I in 590 and have remained consistent across Catholic and Protestant sects for the last 1500 years.

        Next time read the _whole_ Wikipedia article.

        • Phasmatis75

          I will cop to being lazy in grabbing the list. I have seen documentaries on the subject years ago but I can’t remember all the sins off hand. I didn’t even bother to read the wikipedia article, but here is a proper list from Catholics.

          1. Gluttony
          2. Lust
          3. Greed
          4. Pride
          5. Sloth
          7. Anger
          8. Despair or Despond

          Deadly sins stem back to other regions and religions. They are just famous in Christianity even though they’re not technically biblical canon. It has been too long since I last heard about it so I’m afraid I can’t find the other lists from different sects.

          • Daniel Ream

            No, the specifically enumerated seven deadly sins, contrasted with the seven heavenly virtues, are a core part of Christianity. Not just Catholicism, but Protestantism, Lutheranism, Baptism, and most other Christian sects. When someone talks about the seven deadly sins in the context of medieval anything, this is what they’re talking about.

            You’re just full of shit, you don’t know anything about Christian doctrine, and you’re too stupid not to double down on ignorance and special pleading.

    That boss looks like a near total rip off of the Tower Knight from Demon’s Souls.

  • fnd

    Looks to cartoonish to me (first boss fight with thin legs is lol)

  • John27

    Shameless rip off.
