The Mystery Game on Epic Games Store today is Salt and Sanctuary, a haunting 2D action RPG that packs a whole lot of charm as well as some truly spooky environments. Despite being a 2D action side scroller, Salt and Sanctuary has fleshed-out RPG mechanics that offer a lot of player agency. The game was developed and published by Ska Studios LLC and was released on March 15, 2016, for the PlayStation. The game was later brought to the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

The game was received quite well by the critics and players, and many praised the game’s brutal combat and difficulty as one of its best qualities. Salt and Sanctuary is a fairly difficult game that consistently remains consistently challenging but fair.
