Sanguine 2 is a platforming game where you play as Eleanor, a vampire who abducts humans to drink their blood. While you must be sneaky to get the drop on people, monsters have begun to run rampant and must be destroyed with your axe. Once you find the chain, you can hook into any surface and traverse the land in new ways.

The game has has three overworlds with four levels and a boss lair within each, along with secret locations and power ups. Collect keys from completing levels or discovering secrets to unlock the boss lair of each world. Souls can be found throughout levels, for without them, your dying will send you into the death world where you'll need to climb your way back out and harvest more souls.

Arrows - Movement & Duck
S - Jump & Grab Ledge
D - Attack
C - Chain
Ctrl or Click Corner Gem - Pause and open game menu

All controls can be rebound in the game menu, though beware of some keyboards not inputing certain key combinations being pressed at the same time! The key config menu will flash keys as they are pressed, so if one of them won't flash while another is held down, try binding different keys.

Update 1.0.1 - Added a lantern to the bridge on world 1 to help players identify it as an enterable level. Added text to the key config so players will know that it lets them configure their hotkeys. Added two helper gravestones to instruct players on bouncing off sprockets and grabbing ledges. Shaved 4 frames of the startup of the chain twirl, I'd doubt you'd notice!

Update 1.0.2 - Potential bugfix for a rare freeze glitch on the overworld.

Update 1.0.3 - Added a music toggle to the main menu. Eleanor's movement slows down faster (minor) when no keys are pressed, on the ground, and without blood.

Update 1.0.4 - The chain is significantly faster, but now causes less lift. Air attack landing lag has been removed. Sliding has been decreased by a slight but notable amount. Minor adjustments to later levels to make them easier.

Update 1.0.5+6 - Fixed issues with the chain in numerous levels. Slight adjustments to movement physics (again). Fixed a bug that didn't let you change directions on the opening frames of an air attack. Deleted/Altered some cosmetic doors that were causing confusion. Adjusted Iron Maidens attack speed and Banshee spawns.



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

When I started to play I was wondering why such a good game received a rating below 4? But now after 10 minutes of playing I understand why, it's challenging but I don't feel like I want to beat it. Like there's something missing. Concept, character, music and art are really good, but for some reason I don't enjoy it

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I enjoyed this a lot. The chain I found took me some time to get used to, but even with how powerful the character is the enemies still are challenging which is good. I had a fair bit of fun with it and the audio was well done so good job overall. I also did a video of this game here if you have a moment you can take a look if anything but laugh because there were moments of me being stupid.

This game is so bloody hard!! I only have two keys and I can't get past the bloody mountain full of guards! And why oh why do I have to keep falling down that stupid cavern after every single death!? I'm seriously going to break my S button because of this game.

RayBeckham responds:

You keep falling down the cavern because you have no souls left. Souls are the blue glowing orbs you sometimes find in levels. In World 1, there is a forest on the bottom half of the map that you can enter and will give you unlimited souls under the big tree, although you can only carry 10 max.

As for the mountain (cave?) level, humans don't see very high up, so you can try hiding above them or grabbing a ledge and slowly sliding your way down until you see an opportunity. Throwing the chain upwards and hanging from the cieling is another good way to wait from above. You could also try to throw the chain and hook a guard to pull him in from greater range than you'd normally grab them from, which might make abducting and fleeing easier.
