Devotion developer Red Candle Games presents his latest project
The developer behind Devotion, Red Candle Games, revealed a brand new action platformer called Nine Sols on December 15, 2021. Red Candle Games calls Nine Sols their âmost ambitious projectâ to date.
Red Candle Games announced on March 19 that something was in the works, but revealed next to nothing about the project. The developer only pointed out that it won’t be a horror game like its previous versions. The company is best known for detention and devotion.
Nine Sols will be a “lore-rich, hand-drawn 2D action platformer with deviation-focused combat inspired by Sekiro,” Red Candle Games indicated. “Embark on an Asian fantasy journey, explore the land that was once home to an ancient alien race, and follow a vengeful hero’s quest to slay the Nine Soils – the rulers of an abandoned kingdom.”
âNew Kunlun, the last Shrine of the Solarians, has been silent for centuries. Within this vast kingdom, the ancient gods left mortals with a promised land that is forever protected by sacred rituals, but the truth of this world remains unknown to most. Everything changes when Yi, a hero from the long forgotten past, is awakened by a human child.
Red Candle Games intends to “deliver a stylish action platformer that is consistent and complementary with its lore-rich narrative.”
âFollow Yi on his vengeful quest against the Nine Soils, the dreaded rulers of this forsaken realm, and clear any obstacles blocking your path in Sekiro-lite-style combat. Explore a unique ‘Taopunk’ setting that mixes elements together. Cyberpunk with Taoism and Far Eastern Mythology Unravel the mysteries of an ancient alien race and uncover the fate of mankind.
Nine Sols will have a “Sekiro-lite fight” where you “slice, deflect, charge enemies and detonate them”. The fights combine “fast and brutal action sequences with classic platform mechanics”. You face off against “ancient guardians and gruesome creatures” in boss battles. âBe patient and use every move in your arsenal, mingle with Yi’s divine bow to defeat these larger-than-life characters,â recommends Red Candle Games.
Nine Sols will feature exploration and character interactions. Red Candle Games invites you to “roam the interconnected regions of New Kunlun” where you can “uncover secrets” and “piece together the story behind Yi’s vengeance”. You can meet the inhabitants of this world and “interact with them to receive upgrades, learn new abilities, and discover useful technology.”
The release date has not yet been announced and there is currently no information regarding the platforms.
