Salt and Sanctuary now available via Steam and Humble Store0 Comments
Ultra-challenging gameplay isn't something entirely unique to the Souls series, though they are often considered to be the most popular games of that variety. Fortunately for gamers, there are a few alternatives within the genre. Salt and Sanctuary is one such title, and though it doesn't quite share the same acclaim as its inspiraton, it did quickly claim the number two position on PlayStation 4's best-selling list for March.
It likely wouldn't be considered a system-seller, but there's no doubt that the PlayStation 4-exclusive sidescroller certainly made a few waves. However, it's a PS4 exclusive no longer, as developer Ska Studios have announced that their hit action/RPG is now available via Steam and the Humble Store, meaning those of the PC persuasion can jump in on the game's challenging 2D action.
It's certainly a game worth considering, too. Our own Josh Barnes scored it with an 8.5 in his review, where he said, "Salt and Sanctuary is a fascinating game. Its inspiration is obvious, but how it manages to mold that inspiration into something of its own is what really makes the game shine."
