What is DeathStick?
DeathStick is a beautiful 2D pixel art metroidvania/slasher platformer, where you follow a young girl named Mako that starts an enthralling journey to save her world from destruction.
The ancient God has been dormant for many ages, and all this time, two dimensions of the magical world of Aarkalia co-existed in balance. But one day, everything changed – the endless power of the ancient God will be brought upon Aarkalia and turn it into ashes.
Only the young girl Mako can stop the dark ritual from happening. Embark on this fascinating adventure, uncover its mysteries, and help Mako discover her true destiny!
DeathStick has a unique world-switching mechanic: a World Warp ability that turns the special in-game areas 180 degrees, transferring the protagonist into another dimension and unlocking new locations.
