Imagine, you are living an adventure at the edge of reality in a gloomy world drowned by superstition. It's another world, a remote land built upon dark and Gothic architectures, right at the centre of a supernatural vortex, an unknown place.

  •  The Last Faith is an exploration-based Metroidvania, action side-scrolling platformer with dark and gothic themes at its core.
  • The game's plan is to be released on Steam (PC/Mac/Linux), Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
  • The main features of the game are, satisfying reactive action combat system, a high number of different weapons, use of the special buffs to power up you weapons, a variety of magic spells to support your combats, a giant world with terrific environments, and a highly detailed pixel art style.

 

In a world where magic and science meet and where the belief in an ancient religion is the law — Mythringal rises. A capital in full decadence, where its glorious past has vanished through the passage of time and it has been painted into forgotten tomes of libraries set on fire. The civil war has come to an end and a fatal disease haunts the city, corrupted to the bone.

Within this world, left to its fate lives Eric, a man who remembers nothing and stands in the middle of a conspiracy bigger than himself.

Hidden secrets and tales will bring back an ancestral past created by wars between the messiah and the false prophets. Gods and false gods, spells and alchemies, ancient orders that arise and an evolving race made by unknown creatures called "the Cold Ones" lost through legends and songs, which only a few brave souls are not afraid to sing.

Eric will have to subvert the words of the hidden prophecy, the one that haunts him in his nightmares. It’s a continuous obsession, which will force him to venture through dark palaces and mysterious castles populated by nobles corrupted by power, scientists blinded by knowledge, and bloodthirsty mutants.

It will be an ongoing challenge against creepy and strange creatures, abominations feeding on blood and human memories, where no one or nothing can be trusted: only rely on one's own strength. 

The Last Faith is a Metroidvania that promotes a deep exploration style gameplay with non-linear levels. While you travel around the giant map, you have control over the way you want to be next. Every single spot counts, as you can discover new items, new secret areas, particular puzzles to solve and unique enemies.  

You have the choice to wield your favourite weapon as the game provides a large number of them, you will be able to power them up with special buffs and mostly you will cast magic spells against your enemies. All of this is wrapped up in a stunning and highly detailed pixel art style. 

With the stunning visual effects, different combos, special attacks and three types of dodges, The Last Faith provides deep and satisfying reactive action combat. You will be able to switch between a variety numbers of weapons where each of them has different stats and special movesets. Here are some of the melee weapons we implemented on the game. We are constantly thinking and designing new ideas:

Also you will be able to choose between different distance weapons such as guns and rifles. They possess a unique passive ability, you can get a bonus chance of breaking the defence and stun the enemy. An example can be seen in this demonstration:

The dodges are divided in 3 types: back dodge, tactical dodge and evasive dodge:

  •  Back dodge: simply escapes attacks by sliding back. Can perform special attack right after using the dodge.
  •  Tactical dodge: It allows you to dodge attacks while sliding behind the enemy for then facing its back. This will open a chance for you to quickly deal a good amount of damage. (Good during duel combats)
  •  Evasive dodge: Dive roll to avoid specific types of enemies. (Good to avoid large number of enemies at the same time)

Here is a demonstration of all the three types of dodge: 

Weapons can be buffed by using elemental powders. Those are special items you can collect while playing the game. You will either find them by killing enemies or buying them. Buffing weapon will add an extra bonus damage and some passive ability.

 Fire Buff Gameplay - Add fire to the main weapon, and add an extra bonus damage. It is very effective against beasts and Cold ones.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

 Electric Buff Gameplay - By adding electricity to your weapon, you will get an advantage against humanoids and armored enemies. This also increases the chance of stunning them. 

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

 Ice Buff Gameplay - Add Ice effects to the main weapon. This will slow down the enemies plus it will give an extra chance to freeze and execute them by disintegrating them into a thousand pieces.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

 Dark Buff Gameplay - Add dark bonuses to the main weapon. The bonus ignores the enemies defence and armour stats plus you absorb mana from them

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Cursed blood Gameplay - This is a special buff. You can acquire the cursed blood automatically, right after executing a specific type of enemy. This will make your weapons turn with blood and adds bonus damage. Very Effective Vs humanoid.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The last faith also provides some supportive magic spells to deal extra damage to enemies and bosses. Like the buffs, the game provides 4 types of magic spells: fire, ice, dark, and electric. We are constantly creating new effects and magic spells. Here are few of the magic spell we implemented on the gameplay:

 

The Last Faith core is a Gothic-style based around the 19th century, mixed with dark, creepy, and horror feelings. We built a world around those themes; in fact, you will play through giant cathedrals, astonishing palaces, and majestic castles with highly detailed sculptures and decorations.

The game is a Metroidvania at the core, which means levels are designed to be non-linear. You are free to explore even the most hidden secret part of the world, you will travel through a giant world connected by different levels and huge environments, it presents a variety of puzzles to unlock different areas and secret areas of the game. You will acquire a large number of abilities, not only to help your combat situations, but mostly needed to progress on new parts of the game. Here are a few examples of what to expect and and we are also excited to work on even more abilities:

As a player you will be able to interact with several environment items, such as boxes, chairs and more. We are constantly iterating on new ideas. Here is an example of picking up and throwing away a chair:

interact with chair
interact with corpse

Our plan is to release The Last Faith to as many platforms as possible. The main goal will be Steam (PC/Mac/Linux), Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, and Xbox One. 

The Last Faith is populated by a variety of creepy creatures. We designed a large number of types at this stage and we are still constantly creating new ideas. Here is an overview of what you will encounter through the gameplay:

The Widow
The Hollow Hunter
Cathedral Guardian
Vultures of the North
The Blood Seeker
Blind Sinner

 We also designed stunning giant bosses, as we want to give an extra level of creepiness to the game. There will be more to come!

Laddak the Cold One
Ruthless Beast
Horror of the Crypt
Hydra - The Child of the Abyss

We would love to introduce some of our concept art made during the early stage of our game design process. We took a large amount of time creating the main character and some of the selected environments. There will be a big collection of art and concept art printed in our upcoming artbook and it will include more deep stories and facts about our universe.

We have been working non-stop on The Last Faith for about two years now and after spending a large amount of time exploring the core themes, concepts, visuals, and combat mechanics, we are finally ready to move at full-speed to the production stage.

We are a small team formed by two brothers Duilio and Riccardo Guglielmino. Our goal is to create memorable experiences through building video games. We are very committed to this as we are spending every single seconds of our life in building projects. We have years of experience in both developing and designing video games, mobile games and also web apps.

The Last Faith project was born from our passion of gothic architecture and arts. We want to create an experience where people have to feel what means living in an epoch full of mysteries and terrifying environments. For example, living in a gothic city or walking through an ancient street where strange creatures or bad inhuman experiments ambush you.

We have been supported by amazing people, and we would love to shout out them for their incredible talent and work!
