“We’ve been reading and collecting all of your feedback so far, thank you! Please bear in mind that this is just a demo; we will be addressing concerns and tweaking as we go,” added the developer.

As to what the souls-like is about, Thymesia‘s Steam page shares the following:

Thymesia is a gruelling action-RPG with fast-paced combat and an intricate plague weapon system. In a kingdom where death spreads, play as a mysterious character known by the code name “Corvus”. Prey upon your enemies, wield the power of disease and find the truth in your own memories.”

Players will be able to wield different diseases as weapons, upgrade their abilities, and at times even transform into a raven during battle. The game will also task players with retrieving Corvus’ memories, and will be rewarded with different endings based on what they find.

Back in March, Team17 shared a look at Thymesia in action during the Future Games Show.

In other gaming news, traders in Escape From Tarkov have returned to the game, after players paid a ₽1.5trillion ransom fee. While fans can once again buy and sell their goods, the event may not be entirely over – as players have been warned that the game’s blackmailer is still “not happy”.
