Seriously, we can’t make up things better than the PR minds. Fat Dog Games has announced its next game called Sand is the Soul. It’s described as a 2D beat-em-up that is quite literally designed to “kick your butt”. How that will happen remains to be seen.
Here’s what we know from the press announcement
The Souls-like label needs to die? Gibberish! Fat Dog Games and MGP Studios present Sand is the Soul, a unique mix of 2D side-scrolling beat’em up and action RPG.
The world of Sand is the Soul is a living system with evolving timeline, characters and social structure. Some changes are present during your next playthroughs in New Game Plus mode.Above all, this is a game for hardcore players. It is unforgiving and demanding. You will be making fatal mistakes. You will be fighting, dying and trying again. It is a love letter to old school genres and game elements like in-game cheats – the better endings you get, the better unlockable cheats you will receive.
Sand is the Soul will be released in Q2 2018. Players can already add it to their Steam wishlists.
