About Ultros

About this game

Enter the psychedelic platforming world of Ultros, from El Huervo and Kepler Ghost.

A Psychedelic Voyage Through Time and Space

Embark on a breathtaking journey set in the vast, alien landscape of The Sarcophagus, an enigmatic cosmic uterus floating through space and home to an ancient demonic being, Ultros. Woven with intricate storylines and themes of mental health, life, death, and karmic cycles, Ultros plunges you into a brilliant sci-fi universe wrapped in an eccentric art style and a captivating soundtrack from the virtuoso El Huervo, known for his work on Hotline Miami. Uncover your role through exploration and interactions with the inhabitants of this strange world. Are you the harbinger of destruction or the beacon of rebirth?

Experience the Duality of the Universe

Venture into a world of contrasts where brutal combat coexists with serene contemplation. Engage in intense, close-quarter battles against cosmic lifeforms, where every slash of your blade could mean life or death. On the other hand, experience tranquillity as you tend to the greenery thriving within The Sarcophagus. These acts of cultivation offer precious moments of peace and also unravel obscured paths, adding a new ambivalence to your journey.

Unravel the Secrets of Ultros

Brace yourself for the enigma of Ultros. The world is ripe with secrets, awaiting those daring and curious enough to unearth them. With the game’s unique loop-based mechanic, you can reset key moments allowing you to unravel hidden truths, and unlock new areas and abilities on a branching skill tree. Experiment and master your fighting style as you get closer to uncovering the reality of Ultros with every loop. The loop unlocks doors to the truth — how many can you open?
