Thymesia - Release Day

by Hiddenx, 15:44

The action RPG Thymesia will be released today:


A kingdom once thriving on the power of alchemy enters an age of calamity. After discovering the price behind alchemy, an attempt to stop the use of it backfired. Within a few days, the kingdom was in chaos and the streets infested with monsters.

The key to understanding all of this is in Corvus’ hands, but he has lost his memory. The truth can only be found within his memories, but every time he dives back in, he only finds more secrets.


  • Harness the Plague: Seize the disease from gruesome bosses and wield them as weapons. Give them a taste of their own medicine. This is the only way to survive this desolate kingdom.
  • Embrace the Raven: Shift into your raven form during battle. Throw your feathers like daggers and execute enemies with the swiftness of a raptor.
  • Fight Your Way: Upgrade and modify your basic movements and plague weapons. Build your very own play-style and prepare for the challenges in your way.
  • Shattered Memories: Recover your memories through adventures. With different choices you’ve made and items you’ve collected, you’ll get different endings. Stitch together your own truth.

Thymesia - Review @ Hardcore Gamer

by Hiddenx, 16:02

Hardcore Gamer reviewed the upcoming action RPG Thymnesia:

Review: Thymesia

Something something imitation is this and that — I’m sure you know how that fabled saying goes. And perhaps there’s a likely market — one with a sufficiently-sized community at its heart — to explain why we’re bound to see year after year of these kinds of games release, regardless of scale, style and most importantly, lasting substance. At a time where the very studio responsible for bringing us this template have gone and altered (maybe improved, if such is your view) said premise all over again. Love it or loathe it, the Soulslike sub-genre is here to stay. Yet for every platformer or RPG with a desolate attire, translucent form of narrative and emphasis on getting one-over that annoying road-block that’s put you down a dozen attempts prior, there will always be that burning question in the back of your mind: “OK, but what else is there?”


Closing Comments:

Even with these blemishes and moments where the admiration for what’s come before gets in the way of basic consistency and much-needed fluidity, OverBorder Studio have at least landed in a much better position with a foundation that’s challenging and entertainingly so. Indeed, Thymesia has no qualms with letting its inspirations show in blunt fashion, to the point OverBorder’s creation for a time feels like it’s all too worryingly becoming less its own unique take and more a greatest-hits compilation ready to implode in on itself at any moment. It would be easy to dismiss Thymesia as exactly this: references and call-backs but with none of the unifying vision — a slap-dash repackaging of the Souls series’ high’s in an attempt to see what sticks.
But perhaps the biggest surprise coming away is that against all odds this synergy of a literal decade-plus of ideas somehow manages to be as compelling as it is. And while Souls series veterans will get the most out of recognizing and respecting the impossibility of OverBorder’s approach here, Thymesia above all else still asks new, fresh and strategically-minded questions as to how to tackle the eventual onslaught. A rarity among this overly-saturated market. But it’s that small yet critical tweak to the formula, despite its familiarly-decrepit backdrop and far-from-grandiose stature alike that makes Thymesia one of the more memorable and mechanically-satisfying Soulslike’s of the bunch.

Score: 4/5

Thymesia - Preview @ Fextralife

by Redglyph, 16:51

Fextralife posted his first impressions of Thymesia (still in beta).

Thymesia – A Bloodborne-Like Action RPG Coming Next Year (2022)

Thymesia is a Soulslike Action RPG that gives the player the freedom to execute multiple, swift attacks against brutal enemies, much like in Bloodborne. You won’t be able to block attacks either so you’ll instead survive by dodging and parrying heavy attacks. However, the game differentiates itself in terms of how chaotic encounters feel, which is reminiscent of the Devil May Cry franchise.

Thymesia - Delayed to 2022

by Redglyph, 16:12

RPG Site reports that Thymesia has been delayed. Their publisher Team 17 released a trailer announcing 2022.

'Punishing Action RPG' Thymesia delayed to 2022

Publisher Team17 and developer OverBorder Studio have announced that Thymesia has been delayed to 2022. The 'punishing action RPG' was originally set to release for PC (Steam) on December 7. In a delay announcement, found below, the development team simply states more time is needed for finishing touches.

Alongside the delay announcement however, Team17 announced that Thymesia will also launch on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, in addition to its PC version.

Thymesia is set in a world ravaged by plague and places players in the shoes of Corvus, a mysterious character with the ability to wield diseases as weapons. Combat is done in real-time with emphasis on parries and dodges, where Corvus can also transform into a raven mid-battle. More information can be found in the announcement from March 2021.


Hey Everyone, 

Together with our publisher Team17, we have made the difficult decision to delay the launch of Thymesia into 2022. 

As a community you have been so amazing in your support, and we know this will come as a disappointment to many, but our goal is to release Thymesia in the best possible state, and to do this, we need a little longer to work on the finishing touches. 

It is important to us as game developers to put out something we're proud of, and we can't wait for you to enjoy the experience we've created next year when it's fully ready. 

Thank you for your understanding and your continual support!

Thymesia - Release Date Trailer

by Redglyph, 18:17

PC Invasion reports that Overboard Studio and Team17 have announced the release date of Thymesia.

Winter release date revealed for Bloodborne-esque Thymesia

An alchemical bloodbath.

Earlier this year, publisher Team17 and developer OverBorder Studio revealed their upcoming projectThymesia, to the public. The gameplay shown up to this point invited plenty of comparisons to the renowned Dark Souls games, as well as Bloodborne, but it set itself apart thanks to its faster, flashier combat. Although it wears its inspirations on its sleeve, Thymesia looks like a solid, well-realized game in its own right. Both fans of Bloodborne and those who have never touched a Souls game before may find this one interesting. Thankfully, both Team17 and OverBorder Studio unveiled a December 7 release date for Thymesia, so players can get their hands on the game fairly soon.
