Dark Souls for Birds

Devolver Digital has announced its next big game: Death's Door is a brand-new title developed by Acid Nerve that lets you play as the most adorable Grim Reaper ever. Also, you're a bird.

Death's Door has you playing as a crow with a pretty simple job: you have to reap the souls of the dead. Unfortunately, one of these souls has escaped and it's up to you to track it down. Check out the Death's Door reveal trailer to see some gameplay!

Death's Door Promises Challenging Combat

Death's Door plays a lot like an action RPG, but don't be fooled by the cutesy art style — this can be a seriously challenging game. That's no surprise considering that it's coming from the developers of Titan's Souls.

You can expect a lot of similar things from an action RPG — lots of levels to explore, new weapons to find, and the ability to level up your character. This can be especially useful if you've hit a wall with a boss; you can always backtrack a bit and hunt for some better equipment or try to power up your character a little more.

 
 

That's not to say power is everything. As one example, a broken umbrella can be found early in the game and you can get an achievement for using that instead of, you know, an actually good weapon. There are tons of secrets and achievements to uncover, and the game won't end when you beat the final boss, either. If you love action RPGs, then this is probably a game that's well worth keeping on your radar.

Death's Door announced Steam Xbox slice

When is the Death's Door Release Date?

The Death's Door release date will be sometime in Summer 2021; no specific release date has been announced. You'll be able to get it for PC and Xbox Series X|S.

For now, you can add Death's Door to your wishlist on Steam or on the Microsoft Store. You can also check out the game's official website playdeathsdoor.com.

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
