About Valfaris

About this game

Get ready for hack and slash heavy metal hell with Valfaris. With this Steam PC key, you follow the story of Therion, a fearless and proud son of Valfaris, who returns to his home to uncover the truth of its doomed fate and to challenge the arcane evil at its very heart.

After mysteriously vanishing from galactic charts, the fortress of Valfaris has suddenly reappeared in the orbit of a dying sun. Once a self-contained paradise, the grandiose citadel now plays host to an ever-growing darkness.

GO FULL METAL

Valfaris’s take on New Game +. Full Metal Mode lets you restart with your entire collected arsenal and upgrades to face off against enemies, battle buffed bosses encounters and seek out the new Destroyer class weapon!

All enemy stats and aggressions have been juiced to the next level. Experience deadlier difficulty, deadlier firepower, deadlier boss fights!

YOUR OFFICIAL VALFARIS STEAM PC KEY GIVES YOU:

  • Full Metal Mode Now Available for Free
  • Skulls in space, gore in space and metal in space!
  • Savagely reduce foes to piles of gibs with an array of brutal weaponry
  • Explore a diverse range of tainted environments as you venture ever deeper into the dark world of Valfaris
  • Dominate ranks of deadly enemies and bosses, from the weird to the grotesque (and some that are just grotesquely weird)
  • Gorge your eyes on devastatingly awesome pixel art hand-crafted by Andrew Gilmour
  • Feel the power of a seismic soundtrack by extreme metaller and former Celtic Frost guitarist, Curt Victor Bryant
  • A game forged from the ground-up by the team behind cult hit Slain: Back From Hell

UPDATE NOTES

  • All weapons, upgrades, and upgrade items carry over between runs
  • Enemies have increased health, attack, and aggression
  • Bosses receive the same buffs - with additional attack patterns
  • Therion takes more damage
  • New Destroyer Class Weapon
  • New Achievement for defeating Full Metal Mode

Fantastic throwback to the days of Contra but with lots of modern touches. The shredding soundtrack is just the icing on the cake.

Blood, gasoline and the power of metal fuel a destructive 2D platformer that is a delight to run through thanks to tight controls and a killer aesthetic.
