The action-RPG platformer Apotheon is coming to PlayStation 4
McGibney said that while RPG elements are present in Apotheon - a treasure chest here, a skeleton warrior-summoning potion there - shield-clanging combat is at the game's heart.
"We were never much for button-mashy or combo based fighters, which I think have a bit of a stranglehold on 2D action games (especially melee focused ones)," he said. "Instead of giving players a shopping list of moves and combos to memorize, we just give a set of basic actions. You can move, jump, attack, block, roll, and throw. Learned skills like timing, positioning, and reading your opponent’s movements are at the core here."
Apotheon was previously announced for the PC. McGibney said the release date for the PlayStation 4 version has yet to be announced.
