Truth In Shadows

One of the best things about being an indie fan is when you stumble onto a massively talented team you’ve never heard of before. For me, one such team was Colorgrave, and I thoroughly enjoyed reviewing Curse Crackers: For Whom the Belle Toils. Now they have another adventure just around the corner named Veritus. It’s a top-down, pixel perfect adventure with a variety of tools to explore the lair of the God of Shadows. Better yet, Veritus is coming to Steam very soon. It’s officially out on July 22nd!

Here’s some reasons to get excited for the game now:

Get a taste of a classic Adventure-RPG with a fast-paced twist. Use your trusty pickaxe, lasso, and magical god-hand to overcome obstacles. Face bosses, each with their own themes, unique mechanics and even additional phases to put your skills to the test. And explore countless rooms that all feel connected, like small parts of a larger picture.

  • Explore the castle: Discover the mysteries of the god of shadows. Navigate the treacherous corridors and chambers of Veritus’ forgotten castle and find key fragments to unlock secrets within the throne room.
  • Puzzles & Combat: Overcome numerous dangers lurking in every corner of the castle’s hallowed walls. Use the weapons and tools at your disposal to defeat monsters and decipher puzzles that hinder your quest.
  • REGROUP: Set up camps in safe havens deep within the castle. Prepare for each adventure by equipping a variety of weapons and tools, going on expeditions with companions, and resting after each encounter.

Here’s a couple more quick notes about the game. Apparently it’s a direct sequel to another Colorgrave title I’ve not yet played, Prodigal. Also, I love how it reminds me not just of the classic Zelda games, but an upcoming Yacht Club title called Mina the Hollower.

Take a look yourself in the Veritus trailer below. And stay tuned for more compelling indie visions!
