Souldiers – Gameplay Debut at MIX Next

Indie studio Retro Forge Games, working in partnership with publisher Dear Villagers (The Forgotten City, ScourgeBringer), revealed brand new commented gameplay for their upcoming debut Souldiers at this weekend’s MIX Next event, showcasing the exploration and action players can look forward to in the grand retro adventure. Souldiers is slated to release on Switch and PC via Steam in Spring 2022.

Souldiers wraps Metroidvania exploration, crunchy Soulslike action and precision platforming into one gorgeous pixel art package. Players take on the role of either scout, caster or archer battling for freedom in Terragaya, a mystical land on the border between life and death.
Outwit cunning enemies, solve nefarious puzzles, upgrade your character, and explore every corner of a dazzling, intricate 16-bit world. Souldiers is a handcrafted retro epic for the ages.


  • Choose Your Class: Unleash the fury of your sword with the scout, summon the wrath of elements with the caster, or rain down arrows on your foes with the archer.
  • Gripping Combat: Slash, parry and dodge your way through an ever-evolving roster of enemies, upgrading your skills and equipment to find a combat style that’s perfect for you.
  • An Interconnected World: Discover a sprawling handcrafted landscape filled with treasures, tough-as-nails bosses and secret pathways.
  • 16-Bit Sensation: Terragaya comes to life with vibrant world-class pixel art packed to the brim with details.
  • Smart Moves: Solve environmental puzzles and leap from place to place using an ever-expanding moveset.
“Retro Forge was born out of a love for all things classic and nostalgic,” said Alberto Hernández, creative director at Retro Forge. “Souldiers is like our personal tribute to the games we all grew up with. I can’t wait for more people to see it!”

“Souldiers is shaping up to be a super special part of our catalogue,” said Guillaume Jamet, head of publishing at Dear Villagers. ‘It’s beautiful and engrossing. I feel very fortunate to be working with such talented folks.”
