Games like Salt and Sanctuary?

I'm not sure why I didn't play this sooner, but I picked it up during the Winter Sale, and I'm absolutely in love. The combination of platforming and Soulslike experience is fantastic.

 

Are there any similar games you would recommend? I love the Soulslike experience, but would be ok with a platformer, as long as it still had RPG like elements.

Appreciate all the suggestions!

 

Hollow Knight and Dead Cells seem to be the ones that come up the most, but I see them described as Metroidvania. I've done some reading online, but as someone that never played Castlevania or Metroid games, what exactly makes a "Metroidvania" game? And how exactly does that differ from Salt and Sanctuary or Soulslike games?

A "Metroidvania" type of game is defined as one where the map/world involves interconnected areas that are inaccessible until the player has acquired special items, tools, weapons or abilities.  

 

If you're looking for purely "Souls-like" games, then check out this Steam curated list or this list based on Steam tags

Ah that shows how much I know! The map connectivity is one of my favorite features of Souls games.

Momodora is on that Steam list that I can also highly recommend, but its more metroidvania than it is a Souls game.
