The Steam Early Access launch of Team Ladybug-developed Metroidvania game Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth has been moved up one day up from its previously planned March 13 release date to March 12 at 17:00 JST, publishers Playism and Why Why So Serious! announced.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth is a 2D-style Metroidvania (action-exploration) game.
Deedlit awakens suddenly in a mysterious, unknown place.
Where am I? Why am I here?
With nobody around to respond, her questions are met with only silence.
Seeking answers, Deed eventually sets off on foot, alone…
- Sword and Arrow Attacks – Use your sword for powerful melee attacks against enemies within range, or employ projectile attacks using your bow and arrows against those farther away.
- Swappable Equipment – Freely equip and utilize swords and arrows obtained along the way. The powerful weapons and tools you acquire can be used to your advantage throughout your journey. You can also sell off weapons you no longer need.
- Swappable Elemental Spirits – Alternate among a selection of useful elemental spirits to change Deedlit’s various attributes. While using Sylph, the wind spirit, wind-based attacks do less damage. When the flame spirit Salamander is in use, fire-based attacks do less damage.
- Raise Elemental Spirit Levels – You can raise the levels of your elemental spirits by absorbing the “Soul Screams” generated when attacking and defeating enemies. Each spirit’s level is displayed as Deed’s own power level. When a spirit’s level has maxed out at three, HP will be automatically recovered.
