Corpses ‘N Souls dev has plans to bring the game to Switch

Corpses ‘N Souls is a Metroidvania - ARPG set in an incredibly detailed world created using a custom-built 2D HD graphics engine.

Welcome to Corpses ‘N Souls - a game full of unique experiences. Progressive loot & crafting mechanics, tactical combat, spell-craft and adventuring are just some of the options available. Set in an intricately detailed sci-fi world, Corpses 'N Souls delivers a vibrant yet ghoulish atmosphere for the player to immerse themselves in.

Your journey takes place in our own galaxy, here amongst the planets of the Epsilon-K star cluster, you will choose to represent a species and class in order to take on the challenges set before you.

Become the master of harvesting corpses and souls, or fall victim and be harvested yourself. As the dawn of the 'Soul Revolution' approaches, no one’s corpse or soul is safe. Only you can choose the fate of your species. Be the one to help piece together the key to immortality, gaining the upper hand in the impending 'Soul Wars'.

Background: “The Soul Revolution is among us”

Corpses ‘N Souls takes place several hundred years from now, within the confines of our own galaxy. It is a time of great upheaval coupled with tremendous scientific breakthrough. Humanity, now spread across the stars, have waged war against countless species, and in doing so brought many to the edge of annihilation.

Those who had been banished or enslaved by mankind across the far reaches of the Orion Spur became the first to discover the true nature of the soul. In doing so, the combined work of a collective known as “OMEGA” brought about the science of soul scanning, a process that held repercussions not only for those scanned, but for the planet on which they resided.

While some secrets had been stolen by humanity, OMEGA’s revelation of the inner mechanisms upon which sentient life existed, led to the deciphering of life’s greatest secret, the soul map. They revealed that some species had not one, but several souls, merged together in what could only be described as quantum chaos.

Little did they know that each soul held portions of embedded code that were not part of any species map. In time, fragments of the code came together, eventually to be translated into a cryptic message: “the core holds the path to the keys of the galaxy..”

After this breakthrough, OMEGA’s council moved forward to begin the task of reclaiming what humanity had taken from them. Their worlds, their lives, their souls. The reunification took its form as MONSTER Legion, their sole purpose dedicated to the advancement of soul reclamation.

Will you become a master of harvesting corpses and souls, or will you be consumed yourself? As the Soul Revolution dawns, no corpse or soul is safe. The future is not set, every sentient species in the galaxy has the chance for ultimate control and power to wield the key to immortality itself. Your journey begins now, how will it end?

Just letting you know this is a tech demo video not a gameplay video in case this is not clear in the video's title and the first splash screen at the start of the video. In other Tech Demos the technology demonstrated is generally not even running in-game. I have all my tech purposely running in a mock up level of Corpses 'N Souls with all the core game code running etc to show that my tech runs in a real game(minus enemies that are alive) at full speed 60FPS @ 1080p on Ultra.

If you look at the Metro Exodus Real-Time Ray Tracing GDC 2018 demo they just have the camera do a scripted fly by with no gameplay or a person controlling the player(this is very common): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NsdM1VS5u8 is this boring well I guess to some, you are supposed to look at the tech not the gameplay, again this is not a gameplay video. So if my Tech Demo in this article looks boring it is because it is not a gameplay video or a completed game and is supposed to only show case the technology of the game engine I created for Corpses 'N Souls. There will be an official gameplay video of Corpses 'N Souls at a later date this is not it. The gameplay video will show of combat and all the other gameplay mechanics in the game that we are all custom to in other gameplay videos.

I appreciate you taking the time to answer. I did think it was a gameplay video. Sorry about saying it looked boring with erroneous info of what it actually was. I`ll certainly keep a look out for this game.
