Are you ready to combat your sins and crush your guilt? GUILT: The Deathless – a nostalgic roguelike action RPG adventure set in an eerie ever-changing shared world launches in Early Access for PC via Steam on April 28th.
But what is GUILT: The Deathless?
GUILT: The Deathless is a rich dark fantasy inspired by Slavic folklore and real history in which players endure the perils of permanent death in a persistent world where every player’s impact remains.
Gameplay involving guilt?
GUILT: The Deathless features brutal but balanced real-time freeform combat that puts players’ skills to the test. Play as a Threadbarer slashing a path through a dark trail full of the footprints of other players’ pasts.
Roam through bleak twisted landscapes and lairs in the quest to end an eternal cycle of decay and destruction. Brave real-time dungeons amid old school turn-based hex maps where all actions carve the map into evolving circumstances of jeopardy, safety, shortcuts and passage.
With a unique Guilt gameplay mechanic, players can choose to keep a clear conscience to yield the Threadbare Knot’s strength. However, these rotting realms do not make it easy to seek redemption, with prosperous temptations at every turn.
Shamelessly salvaging the remains of other players’ plunder will swell guilt which the Threadbare Knot absorbs until all its power is lost. With the lure of mighty rewards from looted treasures, players elect what they will gain, or lose, from their Guilt.

I find this game absolutely fascinates me. The aesthetic, the score and the character designs are brilliant. It weirdly reminds me of Medievil if that makes sense.
