Lucid Dreams Studio Announces Stylish, Soulslike Metroidvania Biomorph for PC and Console


Fight terrifying monsters and steal their shape and powers! Meet quirky characters, rebuild a city, and uncover the secrets of a fallen civilization – and your own mysterious origins 
 

Montreal, 10 August 2022. Lucid Dreams Studio today announced their upcoming action adventure, Biomorph, a dark, action-packed 2D soulslike Metroidvania set in a sprawling, gorgeous hand-drawn 2D world where enemies are everywhere – and their powers are fair game.
 

Check out the Biomorph revel trailer here:

 

In Biomorph, players must use their skills to explore a vast, varied world. Solve puzzles and platforming challenges, fight deadly monsters and take their shapes to use their powers. But beware – every conquered creature can come back with new and even more threatening powers.

Players must rebuild the city of Blightmoor and befriend the townspeople, learning more about both their and the town’s origins. Players will level-up their character as they fight through the vast areas around the city, collecting new abilities, mementos and blueprints. The journey will reveal surprising and alarming truths about our hero’s own origins.

In Biomorph, players can:

  • Play as the enemies by killing them and taking their shape. Players will be able to use their skills to fight other enemies or use their powers to navigate in uncharted territories.
  • Fight through a challenging AI system where previously mimicked creatures unlock new powers to create a unique experience while revisiting areas of the game.
  • Explore a vast non-linear, interconnected world composed of 16 different environments, home of optional boss fights, eccentric NPCs, tons of secrets and upgrades to reward the most daring explorer.
  • Choose a fighting style by using an arsenal of melee and range weapons, each of them having its own upgrade trees, to bash and shoot enemies.
  • Create different builds in support of individual play styles by equipping and mixing different unique skills that you can upgrade.
  • Customize the look of the main hub of the game, Blightmoor, to have a unique experience and to feel at home.

Biomorph is set to release on PC and console in 2023. Discover more stories from Lucid Dreams Studio on their official site and on Twitter.
