It’s no surprise by now that I’m oprainfall’s resident indie fanboy, or at least one of them. I go out of my way to discover hidden gems and love the opportunity to share them with fellow fans. One such game I played a couple years ago was the fantastic Dandara, developed by Long Hat House and published by Raw Fury. I bought Dandara on a whim, and ended up totally engrossed by the game’s artistry and unconventional combat. It really made a mark on me, and my only issue was that I couldn’t spend longer with it. Well, thanks to the upcoming Trials of Fear Edition update, that’s all gonna happen sooner than later.
Though they haven’t nailed down a release window for Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition yet, it is slated to release for PC and mobile, as well as Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One. This update will introduce new areas, a new boss and new powers for you to utilize. Best of all, it’s totally free to those who already own Dandara. Given how challenging the main game is, I have a feeling these new areas in Trials of Fear Edition will be a substantial threat, and I look forward to rising to the occasion. If you love Metroidvanias and need a new game to play, I can highly recommend Dandara. To see more details about Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition, just check out the press release below.
