Are you on the Blasphemous 2 hype train, just like us? We can officially reveal that one of the best Dark Fantasy titles became part of Utomik’s gaming subscription today: the first Blasphemous game! Whether you’re new or returning to eternal damnation, let’s dive straight in.

Blasphemous

The power of execution is all in its execution when it comes to Blasphemous. This title is a real cult classic, featuring gorey pixel art in a brutal, non-linear metroidvania world. After The Miracle–a blight that changed life as you knew it–you are tasked with freeing the souls of the damned as well as your own. As the sole survivor of a massacre, you are stuck in a cycle of death and rebirth. For some godforsaken reason you seem to be the only one capable of unraveling the dark mysteries the world of Cvstodia holds.

Steel yourself

Ever by your side is Mea Culpa, a powerful sword born of guilt. Use it to your advantage as you hack ‘n slash your way through hordes of enemies. Your cold companion can be customized according to the wielder’s wishes, and many special items ranging from rosary beads to relics will aid you on your perilous journey. Read your enemies and master devastating combos and special attacks to come out as the victor of the most gruesome encounters.

Dark and damned

The world of Cvstodia is cast into damnation, with traps and enemies lying in wait at every twisted turn. Intense boss fights and challenging platforming sections keep things as fresh as the blood shedded by those who stand in your way. What are all these dark layers covering up? Bargain with the tormented souls and brave dangerous paths to deepen your understanding of the world and your own fate. Will you find salvation?

The verdict

Blasphemous is bloody amazing, offering many ways to approach the same stifling situations without forcing you to walk the same paths. The music and voice acting makes for an immersive experience, and the unique style surprised us in more ways than one. Who knew pixel art could be this gory?

Let’s play Blasphemous! If you love dark fantasy games like these, we have even more available on Utomik: here are 5 Dark Fantasy games you don’t want to miss!
