SouthPAW Games and NEOWIZ have confirmed that Skul: The Hero Slayer, their head-swapping 2D rogue-lite action game will leaving Early Access on January 21, 2021. One of the most promising Early Access titles that became available through 2020, they've enjoyed a very good reception to the game overall with over seven thousand user reviews giving it a Very Positive rating on Steam.
A fun mix on the traditional hero types you find in other games, with you taking on the role of the unusual skeleton Skul. After humans and heroes teamed up with an army to try and destroy the Demons once and for all, you're the only one seemingly left so you begin your quest to save your friends after the destruction left at the Demon King's castle.
Sadly, we have to wait a little bit longer for the full release which will bring with it a bunch of extra content to play through. Confirming the January 21, 2021 date in a fresh announcement, they mentioned how they underestimated the amount of time needed to implement and test all of the changes coming because they're "massive".
Up until launch they're working through the two final chapters, new cutscenes, a "ton" of new skull upgrades, polishing and balancing.

Hopefully with the short delay they will be able to ensure the quality of it, as it's already a lot of fun and they're clearly putting a massive amount of effort into it.
You can buy it now in Early Access on Humble Store and Steam.
