Devotion Developer Reveals New Sekiro-Inspired Game ‘Nine Sols’

Nine Sols is a “Sekiro-inspired” 2D game from Red Candle Games with a gorgeous art style and it looks amazing. 2D Sekiro? Bring it on!

Red Candle Games previously developed the indie first-person horror Devotion. This is an atmospheric horror game set in a 1980s Taiwan apartment. It’s a gritty, nightmarish horror that is well worth checking out if you can.

So, Nine Sols is certainly a different direction for developers Red Candle Games, and it’s a game for which we cannot wait.

Nine Sols is “a lore rich hand-drawn 2D action platformer with Sekiro-inspired deflection-focused combat,” tweeted the developers. “Embark on a journey of Asian fantasy, explore the land once home to an ancient alien race & follow a vengeful hero’s quest to slay 9 Sols, rulers of a forsaken realm.

Red Candle Games also shared a small snippet of gameplay for Nine Sols, and it was enough to give us a taste of how good this game might be. Judging from the small gameplay snippet, it reminds me if someone merges Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice with indie darling Journey into a gorgeous, pixel art 2D world.

This looks so good!
