Oh. My. Goodness. What is this?
It's like a 2D pixel-art Dark Souls.
Ohmigosh there's a gameplay vid!
It has a stamina bar! (!!!)
Ohmygoodness there's a write-up over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun.
Here's what the devs say:
""Eitr" is from Norse mythology, it is a black poison substance that corrupts whoever or whatever it comes into contact with. The story of the game is based around the world tree, Yggdrasil, the connector of the 9 Norse worlds, which becomes poisoned with Eitr, spewing darkness into each world.
The Game, Eitr, is an Action RPG which takes inspiration from games such as Dark Souls, Path of Exile and the Diablo series. The game will be challenging and require timing and precision to progress through the environments. Players will need to use a combination of blocking, combos, buffs and positioning to succeed in battle."
Now here's the part that really gets me excited. Devolver may be publishing it.
