Death's Gambit is an upcoming indie game from White Rabbit that will release for the PlayStation 4 and PC in 2016. A 2D, sidescrolling action/RPG, Death's Gambit contains elements that fans of both Dark Souls and Shadow of the Colossus will go crazy for.

A gameplay trailer shows an agile main character balancing the need to dodge, attack, and defend while managing a regenerating stamina meter. Much like Ska Studios' upcoming Salt and Sanctuary, the core mechanics evoke From Software's popular Dark Souls and Bloodborne. Additionally, the lithe protagonist is shown scaling and attacking monolithic creatures in similar fashion to Team ICO's enduring 2005 classic Shadow of the Colossus.

Time will tell if White Rabbit's game will find its own unique voice, but its heart seems in the right place. These are two powerful sources of inspiration to draw from, and the pixel art aesthetic of the game is at once charming and macabre. The world of Death's Gambit is certainly one I'm looking forward to seeing more of in the coming months!
