Souldiers Demo Available Now for Steam Next Fest

Indie studio Retro Forge, working in partnership with publisher Dear Villagers (The Forgotten City, ScourgeBringer) has released a demo of its upcoming 16-bit inspired action-RPG metroidvania adventure Souldiers as part of Steam Next Fest. Today through March 1st players can embark upon more than an hour of gameplay from Souldiers months ahead of its release this spring.

Souldiers wraps metroidvania exploration, crunchy soulslike combat, RPG customization,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.

Each class has its own unique attacks along with different agility, attack, defense, and health stats. Your character can further be customized through branches of unlockable skill trees, offering a huge degree of freedom as you venture through Souldier’s fantastical realm. 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.

“This demo offers players roughly 90 minutes of Souldiers’ opening, allowing them to get acquainted with the game’s three classes, combat system, and opening stages,” said Alberto Hernández, creative director at Retro Forge. “Of course this is just a taste of the full game, which is significantly deeper, offering more levels, enemies, bosses, and upgrades. We hope this whets people’s appetites for now ahead of Souldiers’ launch later this spring.”


  • 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.
