Skul: The Hero Slayer, an impressive Early Access action-platformer rogue-lite is due to hit the big 1.0 soon so come check out the latest footage and developer chat.

They have a great idea, with you playing as a little Skeleton against the 'Heroes' in the Human race that teamed up with an Imperial Army to attempt to wipe out the Demon race. You have a few tricks, like the ability to completely change by swapping around skulls. You can have two ready at a time which changes attack range, speed, abilities and more.

Currently available on Humble Store and Steam, it's been quite the hit with over five thousand user reviews giving it a Very Positive rating and that's all while it's unfinished. During Gamescom 2020, the developer did a walkthrough and showed some new footage towards the end:

As confirmed in the video, SouthPAW Games plan to continue updating it post-release. The big 1.0 release will be bringing in a new chapter named "Ramparts of Fire" which sees you finally get to save the Demon King. You'll be facing off against a bunch of powerful religious zealots, so it sounds like it's going to be tough. Thankfully, we're going to be getting a few new tricks like upgraded skulls to become more powerful which sounds pretty exciting.

You can buy it now on Humble Store and Steam.
