Indie game developer Rasul Mono, creator of Ultra Goodness series, delves into Ultra Badness just in time for Spooky Season…his latest, The Guise, has been released on Steam.
This dark metroidvania tells the story of Ogden, a curious orphan who stuck his face where it didn’t belong. The headmistress told him never to venture beyond that locked door, but that just made him want to do it more….what he found beyond the frame was a monster mask that bound itself to him the moment he tried it on. Now he’s been transformed into a horrifying monstrosity, but his newly acquired abilities may be the key to getting the curse undone.
- EXPLORE A TWISTED FAIRY TALE
The world of The Guise is filled with terrifying locations, including dying villages, dark forests, labyrinthine dungeons, and deadly valleys swarming with demons. Find secrets, hidden passageways, and concealed rooms containing treasures that shed new light on Ogden’s world.
- TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR NEW FORM
The main gameplay hook is your persistent monstrous form. As a human, you could have fought with a sword or any other weapon, but now you have only your newfound feral abilities to rely on.
Unlock new monstrous abilities by defeating bosses and absorbing their skills. Every time you vanquish an ordinary foe, you collect their eyeballs — local currency that can be spent to upgrade your abilities with the Eye Collector.
- SEEK THE LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS
The macabre world of The Guise may be harsh and unjust, but there are still a few people you can count on – for example, children whose eyes remain unsullied, whose perception of the world has yet to be touched by the darkness. Or the Eye Collector, who keenly senses the pain and despair of this boy trapped in the body of a monster.
The Guise is now available for PCs through Steam, at a price of $9.99.
