Blasphemous is a Metroidvania set in a world that faced a catastrophe called “The Grievous Miracle”, which caused human guilt to take physical form, often turning the creatures that inhabit the world in grotesque caricatures of what they once were. The world is deep in catholic symbolism and gothic backgrounds are the main sights that accompany the players’ journey for the entirety of the game.
