About this game

A great deity created the world named Engardin, leaving four goliaths before her departure. The Goliaths abided by their different divine callings and upheld the order and flow of this world. Hence, the lives in Engardin reincarnated and multiplied.

Humans were the last creation, and their ever-expanding ambitions led to a protracted war against the Goliaths. Engardin was engulfed in flames, until a huge explosion known as "The Razing" devastated the Holy Grounds of mankind and brought a swift end to the conflict. But the divine order was broken and lives withered away. The age of mankind came to an end.

The survivors of the conflict scattered across Engardin. Severed from the Well of Mankind and unable to reincarnate, they banded together to form settlements. Years have passed since this great cataclysm, and the remaining human settlements have been suddenly assaulted by mystic forces. Renee, a young amnesiac girl and student of Aros, was the lone survivor of the attack on her village. Determined to recover her forgotten memories and locate her lost mentor, she bids farewell to her destroyed village to embark on a journey that will inexplicably set into motion a series of events that will determine the fate of this new world.

Experience a gorgeous hand-drawn world

Engardin is not only filled with sublime beauty but also plagued by crises. The ruins of Engardin are home to many treasures and secrets, but the Corrupted are waiting for their next prey and ancient deadly traps are ready to kill the careless.

Afterimage is a Metroidvania with a gorgeous world and some great build variety. The combat is almost 2D Soulslike in terms of feel, with two weapon slots and plenty of weapon types to try, each one having different combos and skills attached. There are also spells to grab, they're expensive to use but powerful. The world itself is pretty large, with a good diversity of biomes and hazards. The exploration feels rewarding due to the wealth of things the game can reward you with, and there are plenty of hidden areas and secrets. You'll find even early on, that the game is quite non-linear and allows for several valid paths at a time. It can feel a bit overwhelming at first, but you'll soon get a good feel for how the exploration works and which areas to focus on progressing through. Boss fights are a high point due to the nice-feeling combat and the design of the bosses themselves. So far, they've been memorable and relatively challenging, with some fitting music to go along with them. I'd say the bosses do a good job of feeling like tests for how well you understand the combat mechanics and your chosen build. Some do occasionally have some wonky hitboxes though. Progression is nice, with an extensive skill tree to dedicate points to and the previously mentioned build variety helping to give a feel of gaining power as you go. There are also a good amount of side quests/areas that allow for some extra skill points and rare gear, rewarding players for going off the path and talking to every NPC they can find. There are even optional bosses with good rewards. Overall, Afterimage is a great entry into the genre with a lovely art style, some nice music, and a good understanding of Metroidvania gameplay loops. The occasional frustrating element, odd attack hitbox, or moment getting lost and not always being sure where to go next don't detract too much from the experience.
