Minimalist boss-fighting adventure Titan Souls now has a free demo on PC, Mac and Linux via Steam.

Best described as Shadow of the Colossus meets Dark Souls, Titan Souls tasks players with defeating several bosses in an otherwise uninhabited fantasy world. The rules are simple: you only have one hit point and one arrow. Other than that, you can roll and retract your arrow with telekinesis, provided you don't move when you do this.

The Titan Souls demo is a scene-for-scene remake of the original prototype that was developed for a Ludum Dare game jam.

"Titan Souls wouldn't have existed if it wasn't for the original Ludum Dare game jam, which saw your hero take down three titans with a single arrow, and gave birth to the core concept behind the entire game," said Titan Souls composer David Fenn.

"Now that the development is complete, we thought it'd be fun to celebrate our journey by remaking this original sample of Titan Souls, replacing the bosses with their full-game counterparts that each of these initial ideas evolved into, and enhancing it with the new engine, graphics and audio."

Pre-orders on Steam, Humble, GOG, and Itch.io are 10 per cent off the usual price of 10.99, or 14.99 for the Collector's Edition which includes a digital artbook, soundtrack, map and wallpaper.

Titan Souls is due 14th April on PC, Mac, PS4 and Vita.
