The Tarnishing of Juxtia

The Tarnishing of Juxtia is an upcoming 2D Soulslike in the vein of Salt and Sacrifice or Blasphemous, and if the new gameplay trailer is anything to go by, this thing looks absolutely great.

For me, it’s the pixel art that really makes this stand out. Yes, I’m a sucker for pixel art already, but this game also uses color really well. I’m a big fan of how it uses purples and reds especially. If this plays as nicely as it looks, then I have a feeling it’s going to be something special.

Here’s a list of game features taken straight out of today’s press release:

  • An Extraordinary Adventure Awaits: Explore 15 unique environments, engage in 14 formidable boss battles, and uncover plenty of secrets and sidequests in this sprawling 20+ hour action RPG.
  • Risk vs. Reward Combat: A unique Energy Rush system rewards skilled players who manage to land consecutive attacks.
  • Terrifying Boss Battles: Face evil head-on as you battle corrupted saints, ancient war machines, destructive gods and more in explosive, multiphase boss fights that will push your skills to the limit.
  • Earn Powerful New Abilities: Acquire Relics from fallen bosses that can be powered up to unleash devastating Ultimate offensive and defensive abilities – allowing you to turn the tide of battle in your favor while adding a unique flair to your character build.
  • Kingdoms Filled with Weapons & Loot: Uncover a wealth of unique weapons, armor sets, magic abilities, and Relics.
  • Develop Unique Character Builds: With access to more than 35 weapons and 18 armor sets, create a character that thrives on your playstyle and visual preferences!

The Tarnishing of Juxtia has a vague Summer of 2022 release window on Steam. You can wishlist it now, and you should definitely check out the new gameplay trailer below.
