Slain confirmed for 2016 Vita release

Indie retro slasher fest Slain from Wolf Brew was funded on Kickstarter with a possible Vita version. That's now been confirmed by the dev team (all two of them) with a new trailer featuring all the blood you could want on a Friday morning, and a cracking theme by ex-Celtic Frost (Swiss metallers) Curt Victor Bryant.

A gothic combat-puzzle platform adventure, it sees you in the bloody boots of Bathoryn, a hero in a Gothic world, seeking to liberate seven great towers from their deadly overlords. Bathoryn must battle his way through a doomed land packed with gruesome pixel art foes before ascending (or sometimes descending) each tower, defeating puzzles, traps and monsters alike.

At the heart of each tower, he must confront a mighty overlord. Defeat it and Bathoryn’s quest continues. Fail, and you’ll die gruesomely – mauled by werewolves, disintegrated by floating monstrosities, squashed by great weights or torn apart by hidden blades. And you will fail…
