New Blip: Dark Flame

Dark Flame, from Warren Smith, is a metroidvania heavily inspired by the 2D entries in the Castlevania series, featuring a sprawling maze-like world, fast combat, and RPG-style upgrades. Choice plays an important role here, as players can modify their weapons, manually level up individual stats, and decide whether they want to play the role of the good guy or give in to the power of the dark side. Players who fully explore the environment can uncover hidden weapons and unlock new powers.

Despite a failed Kickstarter campaign, development on the game is moving forward for the PC, although there is no announced release date. A pre-alpha demo is available on IndieDB, and here's a video of some guys playing the demo:
