I was sent a link to Eitr [Official Site], as it's an action RPG with some really fantastic art and fun looking combat. I think you will like the look of this too and it's due for release sometime this year.

The release seems to have been pushed back a few times, with no solid date set this year yet.

It certainly looks like it could be amazing, so I hope they don't push the release date back further again. Still, I would rather they push it back a bit and not release a buggy game so hopefully they've now given themselves enough time to finish it.

The game is actually being made by two people from my home country, so it's fun to see another English developer doing something awesome.

About the game
The Shield Maiden, as with all mortal Norsemen, was to have her fate determined by the three fate-weaving Norns and their sacred loom before she even entered the world. However, her destiny was shattered when the mischievous god Loki interfered, dripping spots of the wretched substance Eitr into the unwoven loom, forever altering the Shield Maiden’s path and engulfing the great tree Yggdrasil in darkness. Now the Shield Maiden must venture into the nine Norse worlds connected by Yggdrasil and unravel the mystery of her fate. Article taken from

Nice touch the shield thing. I wonder, why more developers of sword wielding games do not do a defensive movement for their characters.

Looks like a Dark-Souls-difficult game with slow combat and methodical attacks. I'm interested. Now wishlisted :)

been following for a year, glad they're getting close. In the meantime anyone who wants a great 2d darksouls with linux native should try salt and sanctuary - it's very good.

Reminds me a bit of another long-awaited RPG, Children of Morta.

Why does this scream "DIABLO" at me?

Looks like I may pick it up once it's released

It looks gorgeous. Watching the IGN gameplay video is making it quite appealing.

Edit: The dev is a brit too, so that makes me happy :D
