I was a huge fan of Salt and Sanctuary, a 2D souls-like from several years ago. I was excited to see that they have released a sequel, Salt and Sacrifice., available on Epic.
One of the things I loved about the original was that it was a love letter to Dark Souls - not just an action RPG that drew on some of the Souls mechanics. It clearly was made by someone who just loved those games and wanted to celebrate them in their own way. The new game preserves a lot of that feeling, so far.
My only initial hesitation with the new game is that the animations and controls feel very sluggish and kinda wonky. I'm holding out hope that they are just another example of how the genre makes you work around the animations to build your skills, but so far I'm not loving the overall feel of the controls.
Any fans out there?
