As Shawn Trommeshauser wrote, “Despite its faults, I enjoyed the time I spent playing Dark Deity, and I saw a lot of potential in the game. It’s clear that the developers put some effort into sprucing up the presentation for the Switch, but for every step forward, there was an awkward step back. Given the choice, I would go back to the Steam version for the superior version for the cleaner visuals and mouse control. otherwise they’re completely on par. But if you’re looking for a light Fire Emblem style experience, especially on the go, Dark Deity on Switch might just scratch that itch.”
Here, players can embark on the critically-acclaimed turn-based journey across 28 different arenas. They’ll bond and battle alongside 30 memorable characters, forming both platonic and romantic relationships.
“We never would have believed that our first game would have sold over 10k copies, let alone more than 100k!” said Chip Moore, Game Director, Sword and Axe. “We are so grateful for every tweet, every review, and every stream.”
