What is Ultros?

A Metroidvania-styled sci-fi adventure with a uniquely vivid aesthetic.

You wake up stranded, after seemingly crashing your ship on The Sarcophagus: a giant, space-drifting, cosmic uterus holding an ancient demonic being known as Ultros. Trapped in the eternal loop of a black hole, you will have to explore The Sarcophagus and meet its inhabitants to understand the part you play.

Are you the gruesome breaker of this cycle, or can you become a link from destruction to rebirth? 

Experiment with and master your own specific fighting style as you explore the world of Ultros. Each loop brings you closer to the truth...

Ultros key features

A psychedelic sci-fi journey

Grounded in science fiction, Ultros features an eccentric art style from El Huervo, renowned for his work on Hotline Miami, and a mystical soundtrack composed and performed by Ratvader (aka Oscar Rydelius).

A mysterious, layered loop

The game's loop-based mechanic will allow you to start over at key moments, providing opportunities to explore secrets, unlock new areas of the world, and add new abilities to your skill tree.

A world of contrast

Experience brutal combat with cosmic lifeforms, where every cut of your blade counts, juxtaposed with tending to plant life in The Sarcophagus, providing moments of contemplation and peace - and opening new paths to travel. 

You are Ouji, a nimble sojourner

Assume the role of Ouji, thrust into a world of vibrant colours and strange creatures. She has no memory of who she is and how she got here - but the world feels familiar and seems to react to her, like she has some sort of connection to it.

On The Sarcophagus, Ouji must string together combos with satisfying fast, fluid combat, and eat the guts of fallen foes to replenish her health and boost her nutritional stats.

Zen-like gardening gameplay

Ultros is more than an action-platformer - there's also an ecosystem to understand and actively participate in, and planting mechanics to learn.

The character Gärdner will teach Ouji the benefits of plants. Seeds can be discovered when our hero isn't fighting for her life, which will ultimately sprout and grow, producing fruit. This can be eaten to gain health, and the right kinds of nutrition will unlock new skills at rest points.

These skills aren't just for use in combat - some will enable Ouji to reach new areas of this overgrown, alien world. Exploring different directions is essential to breaking the cycle Ouji finds herself in.
