Awesome indie Metroidvania game Valdis Story is our surprise (?) winner for September Game of the Month, beating out the console port of Diablo III and the new Kindgom Hearts HD release on PS3. Within the sunken Abyssal City lies a veritable labyrinth to explore full of towns, enemies, loot, secrets and more. Backed by an intriguing story of angels against demons and the humans caught in-between, you can choose to play two different characters who offer unique abilities and spells to play with. Combat is sleek and stylish, and knocking together combos of melee and magic is intense. Bosses take combat to a whole new level and continue to introduce new mechanics and challenges for you to overcome. And, of course, let us not forget the great soundtrack and beautiful 2D graphics. Valdis Story blew us away, and we suspect it will do the same for you.
