In a gothic Victorian-inspired setting, Thymesia brings players into a dark world that offers replay value that ensures a long shelf life.
Team17 and OverBorder Studio team up in bringing a new RPG delight to fans. The player is Corvus, a half-raven, half-human hybrid, that sees a kingdom long past its glory days as the world has succumbed to darkness and chaos. The plague-doctor-inspired mask Corvus dons lend credence to the overall atmosphere in the setting, as the protagonist will wield the plague to defeat plague-addled monsters bent by the corruption of disease. Another plague-inspired game in recent memory, that herbs surely won't protect the player against.
Corvus is equipped with weapons that can seize the plague from these corrupted enemies and give them a taste of their own non-medicine by flinging it back at them. Unraveling mysteries and collecting memories that are scattered about the environment will be a key element of gameplay, as the player will traverse the battlefield with precise parries and dodges that are significant in any Action-RPG.
The notable features of Thymesia are as follows:
The music in the trailer encapsulates the dark theme of the game while it shows what Thymesia is about, with a combat style that carries Bloodborne-like weight.
The plague of Thymesia arrives on PC via Steam on December 7.
