Unsouled is a deep and melancholic action RPG from developer Jinsub Jung and publisher PQube. A man and a woman find themselves imbued with the grisly power of absorbing the souls of the dead. A choice presents itself: use the power for good or use it to let the world fall into ruin. One makes one choice, one makes the other. It's up to you to take down your enemy and restore the world to something resembling normality.

Gameplay-wise, Unsouled is all about hyper-stylish top-down action-RPG combat, and some more hyphens. It's set in a dark, brooding world full of majestic fallen ruins, wide-open spaces, and crumbling castles. If you're a Dark Souls or Hyper Light Drifter fan, come sit by the fire and let Jinsub Jung tell you the tale of how his particular world ended.
