A Platformer Where You're A Goddess, And The Levels Are Your Mind

A Platformer Where You're A Goddess, And The Levels Are Your Mind

Oh yeah, and you have split personalities. Also it's a really pretty-looking game.

It's called Red Goddess. An open-world side-scrolling action-adventure (or metroidvania, if you prefer) where you play a young goddess named Divine, taking her on a journey across a planet controlled by her subconscious. This translates to a dangerous but gorgeous alien landscape. Like this:

"Split personalities" here means that you can turn into a more aggressive fire-being called Nar, or a more sneaky ice-being called Syn. Both are aspects of Divine's personality — her rage and her fear, respectively — along with the game's enemies, which are her "negative thoughts rebelling against her." Makes sense, considering the planet you're on resides in Divine's mind, where you search for lost memories to reveal an unknown threat.

Red Goddess has an ongoing but fully funded Kickstarter campaign. Check it our for more details, shots, videos and an early demo. As for the full game, look for it early next year on PC, PS Vita, PS4 and Wii U.

Red Goddess [Kickstarter]


    One personality called Syn and the other Nar.
    Syn Nar.

      Nar means fire in Maltese. Syn as a prefix means acting together, which for someone that's stealthy and can possess enemies is a pretty accurate name. Or if you prefer, apparently Syn and Nar are male so you could take the Dutch meaning for Syn which is Son. Word games are fun.

    Crap! almost fergot about Red Goddess! :D

    Great to see them make it this time around! It was one of those really great concepts/games that was ignored when they tried the first time. Mostly because it was in the middle of KS down season
