  • Valfaris

After mysteriously vanishing from galactic charts, the fortress of Valfaris has suddenly reappeared in the orbit of a dying sun. Once a self-contained paradise, the grandiose citadel now plays host to an ever-growing darkness.

Therion, a fearless and proud son of Valfaris, returns to his home to uncover the truth of its doomed fate and to challenge the arcane evil at its very heart.

Key features

  • Skulls in space! Gore in space! Metal in space!
  • Savagely reduce foes to piles of gibs with an array of brutal weaponry
  • Explore a diverse range of tainted environments as you venture ever deeper into the dark world of Valfaris
  • Dominate ranks of deadly enemies and bosses, from the weird to the grotesque (and some that are just grotesquely weird)
  • Gorge your eyes on devastatingly awesome pixel art hand-crafted by Andrew Gilmour
  • Feel the power of a seismic soundtrack by extreme metaller and former Celtic Frost guitarist, Curt Victor Bryant
  • Forged from the ground-up by the team behind cult hit Slain: Back From Hell

Hey there! It’s been a while. Hope everyone’s doing OK. Been meaning to put this post together for ages, and finally got around to it. So here you go – these are a few (but not all) of the hidden references we snuck into Valfaris that you probably never even noticed: SLAIN: BACK FROM HELL During the Valfaris intro sequence, Hekate says: “Time to wake up, Therion.” This is a reference to Valfaris’ spiritual predecessor, Slain: Back From Hell, in which that game's intro sequence also shows its her...


Thought it would be cool to share some of the bosses, enemies, and scenes that didn’t quite make it into the final version of Valfaris for one reason or another. Enjoy! VALFARIS SCHEMATICS I’m not 100% sure if this scene of Therion studying a plan of Valfaris on board the Wolfship was created for one of the game’s trailers or as part of an ending cinematic. Either way, it didn’t make the cut. DRONE MASTER This pincer-fisted menace w...
