Party of Sin by Crankshaft Games is a side-scrolling platforming (described as a puzzle-platformer) game set within the battle between Heaven and Hell. You play as the anthropomorphic personifications of the 7 Deadly Sins: Wrath, Envy, Lust, Gluttony, Sloth, Greed and Pride who have been very naughty sins indeed and have thus been punished by imprisonment in the depths of Hell. The game revolves around the escape from Hell and subsequent roaming around the depths of the Underworld, even making your way all the way to Heaven. Meanwhile the forces of Heaven and Hell, angels and demons, are duking it out around you and you have to go into the midst of the war in order to show them who is really boss. ‘Cause it ain’t Mr. Floaty-Beardy-Robe Guy I tell you that right now!
Darksiders, hack-and-slasher by Vigil Games and THQ is a game in which you control one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse returns this year with Darksiders 2. While in the first game you controlled War and went about fighting the forces of both Heaven and Hell, Darksiders 2 sees you take control of Death.
While it’s true I’ve never played the first one I have to say the premise is pretty damn cool (and looks pretty fucking cool as well). Plus the new cinematic trailer is absolutely awesome! Check it out after the jump.
