Skellboy looks like a very sweet action-RPG where you swap body parts

Posted by , | Views: 2,985

Skellboy, a recent discovery being developed by UmaikiGames and published by Fabraz (Slime-San, Planet Diver) looks like a very sweet action-RPG that I'm pretty excited about. Only appearing on Steam recently, it's going to be releasing with Linux support in "mid 2019" and they're very clear about the platforms too. On the official site, it's right there.

Why am I exited about Skellboy? Well, not only does the graphical style look fantastic mixing in flat shapes with pixel-art and a 3D environment, the gameplay sounds highly amusing too. As you progress, you will be able to replace your bones with different body parts taken from others, which is a little weird but it does sound rather comical with the cute graphical style to it.

Looks cute, and the maps seem to be pretty fun. However, the combat shown in the trailer looks like it would test my patience more than my skill. Going from the trailer it seems really awkward and hard to judge. But we'll see what actual players say, I guess.
