is a 2D action role-playing video game developed and published by Ska Studios. The game was released on March 15, 2016, for the PlayStation 4, with later releases for the PlayStation Vita and Microsoft Windows in 2016. The game is heavily inspired by the Souls series by Japanese developer FromSoftware.
The game features 2D hand drawn visuals. Weapons have movesets, and players are able to perform air attacks. They can wield two handed weapons for additional power, and shields to defend themselves. Magic and ranged attacks can also be performed.
The game was first announced on in an open letter from the developer to the PlayStation Blog on August 28, 2014. The game was released for the PlayStation 4 worldwide on March 15, 2016, and will be released later for the PC and PlayStation Vita.
It has a score of 84% on Metacritic. PlayStation Lifestlye awarded it a score of 8.0 out of 10, saying "Salt and Sanctuary is fairly shameless in the way it replicates elements from games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, but that’s not really a bad thing when you see how it all comes together as a polished and thoroughly enjoyable final product."
