Skul: The Hero Slayer, the riveting rogue-lite 2D platformer published by NEOWIZ and developed by SouthPAW Games, has officially released on Steam Early Access, available now for $17.99 USD. A full release is slated for later this year, with opportunities for hands-on demos available at PAX East 2020, Feb. 27 to Mar. 1.

Featuring dazzling pixel-art graphics and fluid, fast-paced gameplay, Skulfollows the tale of a diminutive, yet powerful, skeleton burdened with saving his King from captivity. In his path stands the dastardly Caerleon Empire, and a famed group of Adventurers who yearn for nothing more than to vanquish Skul and his Demon brethren. But Skul is no ordinary skeleton. Facing great odds and even greater foes, players will use Skul’s unique ability to swap skulls and transform into one of more than 20 unique playable characters, unlocking a plethora of devastating attack combos and abilities, and creating new challenges with every playthrough.

“We’ve poured our blood, sweat and tears into this project and can’t wait to show it off to the indie gaming community,” said Sang Woo Park, CEO of SouthPAW Games. “But this is just the beginning of our journey, as we’ll be paying close attention to our community’s feedback and proactively shaping the game to make it a truly special experience.”

Skul is available now on Steam Early Access for $17.99 USD, and will be available for 20% off during the initial two weeks. The game currently supports English, Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese. A full release on PC and consoles is planned for later this year.
