An Interview with Digital Uppercut / Valfaris

This is the run and gunner that you have been waiting for. Valfaris, is the next game from the team behind Slain: Back From Hell. Described as a a heavy metal infused 2D action-platformer, it might give you those Contra/Metal Slug vibes like it did to us. Valfaris sounds as savage as it looks. The games soundtrack is by extreme metaller and former Celtic Frost guitarist, Curt Victor Bryant! Heavy Metal and video games go together like peanut butter and chocolate Remember Brütal Legend?

Sidenote: Did you beat Slain? If not, you have to master the blocking mechanic for each enemy. Most of them are similar, but they have different speeds and “tell” animations. Other than that, the game has a couple trial and error traps that you might not see.

We got a chance to speak to Matt Cundy (Digital Uppercut) at Pax West. Valfaris is being developed for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It’s planned for release in 2019.
