A game CathedraIdeveloped by the company Decemberborn Interactive and published Elden Pixelsbecame available on the PlayStation 4.
Cathedral is an 8-bit Metroidvania with over 600 rooms to explore on a massive interconnected world map created using modern Metroidvania game design principles. The expansive Cathedral map is entirely handcrafted in pixel art to the smallest detail and filled to the brim with all sorts of locations, secrets, puzzles, items, and special challenges.
In Cathedral, players wake up in a world with no memory of how they got there. Control a nameless knight from another world who allies himself with a spirit known as the Soul. Explore the world together to understand who you are, how you got there and, most importantly, how to get back home.
To unravel the mysteries of the knight’s past, you will have to find five legendary elemental spheres, guarded by five fearsome guardians. Go through their dungeons, face them in combat and see if you can win and claim the treasure they guard. In classic Metroidvania fashion, you will find many items on your journey that will allow you to explore the world even further, unlocking new areas, secrets and surprises.
