I have finished Salt and Sanctuary.
Some people say it's a Dark Soul ripoff. They're wrong. It's THE Dark Soul ripoff
More seriously, the game is what would happen if Dark Soul and a Metroidvania had a child.
It's pretty good. It's the type of game where if you mess up and get hit, you can take a ton of damage
which mean you must have a good defensive game. You must be able to at least either dodge or block attack but ideallly both.
salt by defeating enemies which is then used at
santuaries to either level up or upgrade your equipment.
Unlike Dark Soul, you also have gold which can be used in shops.
While some people mentionned that you get too much money in the game,
the flipside is that you don't have any excuse to not stock up on stuff and experiment with items
and don't have any excuse if you died not being able to come back to a sanctuary because you didn't teleported.
The game is light on music and at many time it's, well, greyish but it works really well in the setting.
The world of Salt and Sanctuary is messed up and not an happy place.
It like if you went to every place in the world that went wrong. XD
Anyway, I have trouble doing this game justice, consider trying it.
It was apparently made by two people, a couple actually.
I am impressed that only two person were able to come up with this game. ^-^
