To begin, I will admit that Perish is not in any way an unheard of quantity in the world of PC games. It’s a roguelike-like with random generation and permadeath. Once upon a time nobody did that for 20 years, but now it’s every videogame. Perish does, however, sweeten the pot with Dark-Souls-inspired biff-thud-whump-*sounds of your own pitiful whimper*-ing and a gorgeously gloomy aesthetic. Basically, it’s Dark Souls meets Spelunky. It’s still pretty early, but there’s an alluringly melancholic trailer below.
