History

Lords of Exile was born in 2018 in the room of the Spanish indie game developer CZAzuaga as a small experiment out of curiosity to test the capabilities of perfect pixel rendering and the shaders of Godot Engine, as time went by, the game became more and more popular and the project grew and progressed more and more until it was what it is today. Due to the need for flexibility in console ports, the project has been migrated as a motor and now runs on Game Maker Studio 2.

Articles and Special Mentions


But while Metroidvania games are always welcome, we are admittedly lacking in games that resemble the more traditional, NES-era Castlevania games. So this right here is certainly a welcome sight, nailing down the graphics quite well while appearing to set up some satisfying boss battles. Can’t wait for the Kickstarter campaign!

It looks to be loaded with classic Konami Castlevania vibes in the best way, feeling like a natural continuation of what Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon began.

John Friscia, Nintendo Enthusiast

Lords of exile is a love letter to a whole generation of 8-bit games and drink of great game classics like Castlevania, Ghost & Goblins or Black tiger. His retro aesthetic with a (very intentional) very limited palette is not an impediment to show off very expressive sprites and careful animations that fill us with tender nostalgia to those of us who are of a certain age and will surprise those younger ones with their liveliness.

Special mention to the game’s scenarios that, despite the Spartan aspect, manage to be tremendously immersive and make our adventure in Gabriel’s skin closer and more intense.

A budding gem that lovers of platformers and pixel art should not miss.
