The Tarnishing of Juxtia combines dark fantasy visuals and a hauntingly beautiful score with challenging ‘Souls’-inspired 2D action-RPG gameplay and a sinister narrative. At the heart of the game is an innovative and rewarding combat system supported by a staggering variety of weapons, armor sets, and abilities. Featuring highly-detailed pixel art, stunning environments, dangerous traps and terrifying Tarnished bosses, The Tarnishing of Juxtia delivers an immersive, unforgettable experience to ‘Souls’ fans looking for a new 2D fix. The player assumes the role of a mysterious and nameless hero – the final creation of a dying God who is desperate to save their kingdom. Tasked with exacting revenge against those responsible for unleashing “the Tarnishing” (a supernatural plague that twists victims’ bodies into bestial flesh puppets), you must journey across two war-torn kingdoms to purge the Tarnishing from the land and restore order.
