Dark Souls had an immaculate conception...

Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption was developed by Dark Star and published by Another Indie, a publishing company with love and respect for the Indie titles and doing what they can to promote what they feel is an industry that is constantly growing.

You are Adam, a lost being with no memories of your past. You are branded as a Sinner and you fight your way to the answers of who you are, and face enemies based on your previous sins. But will you get the answers.

There is no doubt when starting this game that it takes notes from Dark Souls, they even state this on their own description of the title. I was happy to hear this, being a Souls fan myself. When do most games not take good elements from titles and make it their own, if anything this should be a compliment to the them titles.

You begin in a dark and lost looking world, following a path with ghosts along the journey offering you a basic but needed tutorial in this title. This element was needed, as I have been playing it for some weeks now and it originally threw you in the deep end with no help or explanations. Obviously, it still keeps that element of mystery but gives you a slight helping hand. This is needed as I said, as it is a hard game with some steep learning curves. Oh how I do like a challenge.

Graphically it is a great effort and they should be proud with what they have accomplished. Darkness and turmoil in games is a hard atmosphere to recreate but it is accomplished very well. The cut scene elements are taken from a noir comic book style and has some professional voice acting to compliment their image and the tale that is being told.

You enter what look like grave stones marked with symbols, these are the levels where you will face your greatest fears and learn of your sins. You must Sacrifice to atone, this can be from taking a loss in health or stamina, to other elements in the game. There is a large selection of weapons and items to master.

As stated before this is a hard game, but as rewarding in return and offers new game elements and replay ability on completion with multiple endings to boot. I highly recommend this game and best of all it is available on all current platforms and is also coming to XBOX Game Pass.
