Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is a boss rush where you level down

Dark Star Game Studios have announced a theologically-tinged boss rush title called Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption. In it, you’ll play a deceased man called Adam (hello, religious symbolism) and battle through bosses themed after the seven deadly sins. Plus one more, making eight in total.

Sounds like it’ll be a bit like Furi, where you go straight from one to the other. Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption has an interesting twist going for it, though. After every battle, Adam has to select a stat to reduce before heading into the next encounter. So as well as the bosses (presumably) getting tougher, you’ll also be getting a bit weaker every step of the way.

There will be different unlockable weapons to select from, and Adam’s interactions with the bosses will ultimately determine which one of multiple endings you’ll receive. Sinner is due out in early 2018. It’ll be playable at Gamescom though, if you happen to be in Cologne in late August. Here’s a trailer.
