I didn’t have darkish fantasy soulslike motion RPG starring humanoid cats on my 2023 bingo card, however for those who did, congratulations! Indie builders Astral Clocktower Studios are granting your want and filling in that house with Kristala, its in-development debut title where your completely lovable widdle warrior should grasp the magic of six sacred crystals to struggle a horrible curse that has mutated the opposite creatures of the world into monsters.

That’s presumably, in fact, in case your ickle bitty cutie warrior can cease attempting to leap on high of the bookshelves and/or catch the laser pointer. I imply simply have a look at them, they’re such exact little housecat faces.

Cute cate jokes apart, it seems like some attention-grabbing ARPG stuff. The game guarantees to have weapons, spells, armor units, and gadgets to gather and improve as you discover its atmosphere and full your quest to show your self by gathering your sacred crystal powers.

The world design additionally intrigues me, even when it positively makes me chortle due to how laborious it leans into the cat tropes. The principle enemy is, in fact, a military of scary humanoid rats, and the newest trailer exhibits a scary fish to struggle as properly. However the design is creative! Some mousey-looking helmets have designs paying homage to ears on them, for instance—simply good stuff.

You could find out extra about Kristala on the Astral Clocktower Studios web site, on its Twitter, and see Kristala on the Steam Retailer. Its launch date has but to be introduced.
