Reduce your enemies to mere gibs while exploring dark and tainted environments.

Valfaris releases for Nintendo Switch on November 12th, 2019.

From the game's website:

"Valfaris is a heavy metal infused 2D action-platformer and the next game from the team behind Unity Awards finalist, Slain: Back From Hell. Brutal combat. Deadly enemies. Stunning pixel art. Savage soundtrack. Get ready to rip the galaxy a new wormhole!

After mysteriously vanishing from galactic charts, the fortress of Valfaris has suddenly reappeared in the orbit of a dying sun. Once a self-contained paradise, the grandiose citadel now plays host to an ever-growing darkness. Therion, a fearless and proud son of Valfaris, returns to his home to uncover the truth of its doomed fate and to challenge the arcane evil at its very heart.


Reduce foes to piles of gibs with an array of beautifully brutal weaponry


Journey through tainted environments as you venture deeper into Valfaris


Gorge your eyes on devastatingly awesome pixel art crafted by Andrew Gilmour


Experience a seismic soundtrack recorded by extreme metaller Curt Victor Bryant

The boxed versions come courtesy of publisher and distributor, Merge Games."

From Mashable:

"Valfaris is metal as hell.

Right from the first scene as the hero Therion smashes his spaceship onto the surface of a floating space fortress, smashing a handful of alien monsters in bloody mess, Valfaris gets right in your face and thankfully never lets up. Except when you grab some new items and watch Therion do a little headbang celebration.


The more you push onward, the more metal Valfaris is. You can see it in every scene of the game, but there's also other little elements that aid the aesthetic. There is one section of the game where there are these membranes blocking off sections that require alien pheromones to open up. How do you get these pheromones? Eviscerate an enemy and cover yourself in its blood, of course."
