Game Completion 2021 #15 – Chronos: Before the Ashes

  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Gunfire Games
  • Publisher: THQ Nordic

A solid indie Soulslike with an interesting premise that, surprisingly, cribs more from Demon’s Souls than its more popular brothers. A few problems hampered my enjoyment–badly telegraphed fighting spaces in boss arenas, a bug that robbed me of a much needed stat boost and a touted magic system that never really existed–but I don’t regret my time with it and I reckon it’s probably the best indie Soulslike for genre beginners.
