Overview

Shipwrecked on a mysterious island in the sea that lies between nations at war, a faceless sailor must fight to survive. Salt and Sanctuary is the hardcore action RPG side scroller from Ska Studios, the creators of The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile and Charlie Murder. Salt and Sanctuary combines deep character building and customization with Ska Studios’ signature style: richly stylized and hand-drawn environments and animated 2D characters, precise controls, and fair but brutal gameplay in a hauntingly beautiful universe. 

 
 

Gameplay

Details

  • Explore a vast and treacherous world, teeming with diabolical traps, mysterious secrets, hidden shortcuts and vicious enemies. In addition to a diverse array of combat and platforming challenges, this seamlessly-interconnected environment features more than 20 powerful and devious bosses.
  • Equip yourself as you see fit with a wide variety of weapons, armor, accessories and spells to create your own unique hero – or villain!
  • Survive it all over again with a series of increasingly difficult New Game Plus playthroughs.
  • Sacrifice relics at your sanctuary, your only refuge.  Upgrade it, add friendly NPCs like merchants and mages, and unlock new abilities, like weapon transmutation and fast travel. Do you ignore a strategically important sanctuary held by a rival creed, or do you desecrate it, earning the wrath of it followers?
  • Uncover the submerged lore of a strange and dangerous world, hidden in item descriptions, the Bestiary, and dialog.
  • You’re not entirely alone... Castaways on this forsaken island can leave their mark on each other’s journeys through messages, shadows and other shrouded multiplayer interactions.
  • ...because together’s better. Too lonely? Too difficult? Join your friend’s world as a sellsword from afar for local co-op… or versus!
