Arriving on PC today, Croixleur is a high-speed, hack-n’-slash arcade action videogame by Japanese indie developer Souvenir Circ. Launched via Steam Greenlight with a budget price tag, Croixleur is reminiscent of the Devil May Cry series’ Bloody Palace mode as our protagonist, Lucrezia Visconti, battles her way through floors of oncoming monsters in a ritual called ‘the Adjuvant Trial.’
Tonight, in the Queen’s realm of Ilance, two prodigies representing the Knight and Aristocrat factions will do battle in ‘the Adjuvant Trial’. This ritual, which has been held since the founding of the nation, decides which faction will hold military and political authority, and protect the Queen, the living symbol of the realm. The fate of the nation is at stake as these two girls set aside their childhood friendship and undergo a trial in which there can be only one victor.
Available from today, the English-localisation of Croixleur is priced at just $4.99 USD. A playable demo of the videogame is available at the official website, http://croixleur.com/trial, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest UK releases from Souvenir Circ.
