Published by Team 17, known for the Worms series, Thymesia is a Souls equally inspired by Bloodborne developed by the Taiwanese studio of OverBorder. While the game is scheduled for August, a demo is already available and we’ll give you our impressions after completing it.

In Thymesia, OverBorder introduces us to a realm where death spreads due to a strange disease. The player then embodies a mysterious character known as Corvus, with his face hidden by his pointed mask, which must reveal the truth by exploring his own memories that make up the title levels. The adventure therefore takes the form of an Action RPG, where you go from one group of enemies to another until you face a particularly difficult boss to meet.

Well, let’s say it right away: yes, Thymesia is very similar to From Software productions, especially Bloodborne. Whether it’s in the style of play, in the atmosphere and even in details like the message of death, it’s hard to miss the feeling of deja vu. However, there are still some differences. First of all, the title does not have an endurance meter, which allows the player to chain hits and dodge at will. However, this does not mean that you can strike without stopping without danger, for it must be taken into account that the enemies are not necessarily interrupted when they take damage. On the other hand, the game forces you to be aggressive, as opponents can regain their lives if you do not hit them for a while. Specifically, your opponents’ wounds are represented by the green color on their health bar.

Controller in hand we can therefore attack with his sword, divert the enemy’s blows, but above all use the forces of our character, which derives its strength from the disease that is spreading in the game world. The Corvus can strike using a claw, which, when charged, allows him to copy an opponent’s abilities to spawn “spectacle” weapons such as swords or axes. In addition, the same claw also allows you to consume the green parts of your opponents’ life meters, that is, their wounds so that they do not regenerate. In addition, your character can also throw a feather to interrupt an enemy’s critical attack.

A gameplay more nervous than Souls like?

Thanks to these two options, the gameplay, which looks classic in appearance, wins in depth. After all, the management of our memory loss remains very special, especially because of the evasions, which are only a step aside, at least in this demo. Faced with initial feedback from players, the developers specified on their Twitter account that the character’s avoidance abilities are very basic in this trial, but that they can be improved through the game thanks to a skill tree.

After this short demo of just under twenty minutes, Thymesia seems to have some potential that it does not fully present to us in this extract. If the ability to copy your opponents’ abilities is good, the handling of the character is currently quite special, but should be refined in the final version thanks to the different skill trees. But if the density of the title with Bloodborne will delight fans of the latter, the lack of conspicuous originality may not please everyone and postpone more than one. In any case, we just have to wait for the game to come out next August to see if the full experience will live up to its promise.
