Melee combat and Chinese drama collide in the hand-drawn 2D side-scrolling action-adventure Eastern Exorcist, heading to Steam Early Access.

Players take on the role of an exorcist who vanquishes demons with his sword. Fight through a frame-by-frame animated world infested with demonic monsters, where survival is a matter of mastering control of your weapon. The world is presented as traditional Chinese ink-style paintings, and cutscenes replicate Chinese opera.

“We wanted Eastern Exorcist to be as striking to watch as it is captivating to play,” says Shaoyan Chen, co-founder of developer Wildfire Game. “That’s why this is a hand-drawn adventure where the flow of a fight appears as rich and real on screen as it feels in the hands of the person playing it. We can’t wait to see gamers take on the game’s league of beasts in play.”
