According to a tweet from Death’s Gambit Developer Jean Canellas, the challenging pixel indie title might be getting some Sekiro inspired updates.
Death’s Gambit Getting Some Sekiro Inspired Moves
Last we heard about Death’s Gambit was in a developer update on Tumblr which outlined some of the progress they were making with a new free DLC. This included fixes, new abilities and metroidvania upgrades.
Now it looks like they are interested in adding in some combat moves inspired by Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. In a tweet by developer Jean Canellas from White Rabbit, they released a short GIF demonstrating a Perfect Block. This will ultimately change up the way the game is played and could even alter how certain boss fights play out.
Messing around with Perfect Block. Making some changes inspired by Sekiro. It changes the way the game plays so have to keep testing and iterating. #gamemaker #screenshotsaturday #pixelart #gamedev pic.twitter.com/C7GGn0Fuis

In Sekiro, using Block and Deflect attacks will fill the character’s Posture gauge which both enemies and player possess, which adds a further challenge to combat. From the example it looks like it’s affecting a stamina meter, depleting rather than filling up a bar. But the hint of “changes” means there could be more additions coming to Death’s Gambit.
What do you think about Sekiro inspired mechanics being added to Death’s Gambit? What other features do you think would be a good fit for the title? Let us know in the comments below.
