Skul: The Hero Slayer, the hit indie roguelite being published by NEOWIZ and developed by SouthPAW Games, just released its 1.0 Version after spending around 10 months in Early Access on Steam. It currently has over 7k reviews with a 93% positive rating and this update will be its biggest one yet.
The 1.0 features the final two chapters and several dozen new playable characters each with unique skills and looks via the newly-implemented upgrade system. There have also been major changes made to the overall level design and countless QoL improvements. Several extensive cutscenes were added as well to fully tell Skul’s story and deepen the game’s lore.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to finally launch our 1.0 and show everyone what we’ve been working on the last five months,” said Sang Woo Park, CEO of SouthPAW Games. “The Early Access period was an invaluable experience because we were able to gather so much feedback and connect with our community, but we’re ready to take the next step and think that Skul is finally ready for its full release.”
The 1.0 Version brings with it language support for Spanish, Portuguese, French, Polish and Russian. SouthPAW Games is also planning to release Skul for PS4, Xbox One and the Switch early this year.
Skul is available now on Steam and will be 20% for the next two weeks.
