It’s worth it | ‘Helvetii’ is also coming to Nintendo Switch and PS4
Helvetians is a 2D Roguelite action game centered around exploring and adapting ancient mythology and history of the Gaulish Helvetii tribes as well as the myths of Celtic and other diverse cultures elements in a challenging and fast-paced modern action game with a beautiful art style.
Around a hundred years BC, all of Gaul was far from Roman control. In the lands controlled by the Helvetii, a Roman legion has been subjugated by the young warlord Divico, blessed with an ancient favor brought to him from parts unknown.
However, this victory came at a high cost, as soon the outcome of the Warchief’s pact would turn into a curse; an ever-spreading rot crawling across his lands and slowly corrupting his mind and heart. Monsters and cultists begin to appear all over the land, and a shadowy figure moves in, taking advantage of the chaos he helped create.
Take control of a diverse cast of characters, including a fierce young warlord, a naive but dexterous fox turned man, or a cunning druid wielding primal forces, and use their unique and varied combat skills to fight your way through through hordes of creatures and put an end to the rot that has gripped both the land and their hearts.
Combat in Helvetii takes many forms. Players will be able to create combo chains, parry enemy attacks, break their guard, juggle them through the air, launch projectiles at them, evade their most powerful attacks, and even use a variety of powers that will help them through the journey of adventure. ‘Helvetii.
