Wolf Brew Games have released the launch trailer for Slain!, their beautifully brutal gothic adventure title. Check the trailer out below:

Prepare to be Slain! Will you accept the challenge…

Players control Bathoryn, a hero in a Gothic world, seeking to liberate the 6 great towers from 6 deadly overlords.

Bathoryn must battle his way through a doomed land packed with gruesome pixel art foes before ascending (or sometimes descending) each tower, defeating puzzles, traps and monsters alike. At the heart of each tower, he must confront a mighty overlord. Defeat it and Bathoryn’s quest continues. Fail, and you’ll die gruesomely – mauled by werewolves, disintegrated by floating monstrosities, squashed by great weights or torn apart by hidden blades. And you will fail…

Unique puzzle-combat with non linear progression.
10+(?) hours of bone-crushing, metal fueled mayhem & gore.
Choose from 3 unique weapons in your fight against the demon horde.
Full soundtrack recorded by Curt Victor Bryant formally of Celtic Frost . \m/
Secrets (shhh).
Boss fights, mini-boss fights, sub-mini-boss fights, macro-sub-mini-boss fights!
No leveling, no grinding, no crafting!

I’ve been looking forward to Slain! for awhile – it reminds me of Castlevania, but with a lot more blood and guts on offer. Brutal.

Slain! launches on PC, Mac and Linux tomorrow – you’ll be able to grab it on its Steam page through this link. It’ll be coming to Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Wii U and Playstation Vita this Summer.
