This is a walkthrough for the demo, you can find the complete walkthrough of the Last Faith here.

Welcome to the Into Indie Games walkthrough for the extended demo of The Last Faith from the Steam Next Fest 2023.

The Last Faith is a 2D side-scrolling soulslike metroidvania that’s been garnering a lot of buzz recently. If you want to learn more about the The Last Faith beyond this walkthrough, you can find it here.

Begin by selecting your combat style. I chose the Brawler class for this walkthrough. As you can see, The Last Faith will offer four classes in the complete game.

The last faith intro screen

When the game starts, go right towards the ladder. Break the boxes on your way. They will either carry bullets, magic refill or healing items.

The Last Faith Walkthrough - Extended Demo Part 1

Go down the ladder. To your left is a vendor. You can talk to him for some lore text but you do not have the cash to purchase anything. Go right.

The Last Faith Walkthrough - Extended Demo Part 1

You will face your first enemy in the next corridor – an Infected Wanderer. He throws molotovs and swings his knife when you get too close. Roll towards him and away from the firebombs and dodge his swings. He should go down in a couple of hits.

The last faith first enemy

Continue right and you will come across your first permanent checkpoint. Check here to refill your health and mana.

The Last Faith Walkthrough - Extended Demo Part 1

Go up the ladder to find two random consumables. Drop back down and continue right into the courtyard. Keep going right.

Go up the ladder and pickup the consumable, but do not continue upwards. The enemies are easier when you come back later with upgrades. For now, keep moving to the right.

The Last Faith Walkthrough - Extended Demo Part 1

In the next room, you will face a Deranged Woman. She rushes you and swings and leaves behind piles of red goop that hurts. Don’t over-commit on the combo. Jump over her or roll dodge through her attacks sprinkled with 3 hit combos.

The Last Faith Walkthrough - Extended Demo Part 1

Go down the ladder. Take out the next Infected Wanderer and continue down. Another Deranged woman in the next level. Take her out as before.

If you get hit, use your gun to keep distance. It deals a ton of damage but also bullets are scarce – so pick your poison. Go to the room on the left of the ladder.

The last faith gunplay

Pick up the lore piece in the room. It talks about a Cold One you will face later. *Foreshadowing* Go back to the previous room and continue to the right.

You will face your first flying enemy – a Rotted Cold One. It does a slow-dive bomb that is simple enough to dodge and takes a couple of hits to die.

The Last Faith Deranged Woman

Next to it is an Old Vigilante. His range attack is easily dodged by rolling but if you get close he will melee you. Blindside him and take him out.

Go right to face another Deranged woman. Ignore the ladder going down for now and continue right after taking the Deranged woman out. You will be in a graveyard with Lucyl. Watch the cutscene, if you feel like it.

The Last Faith Cutscene

Beyond her is a door, we cannot open in the demo. Time to track back. Go up the ladder. There are two Faceless Ones and an Old Vigilante. The Faceless Ones jump in an arc and swing their knives on impact So, roll dodging them is the best solution. Keep dodging and hitting them till they go down.

The last faith multiple enemies

Go down the ladder you came up with as the ladder to your left is out of reach and will need to be lowered. Continue to the left, back into the courtyard where you faced the Rotten Cold One. Take the ladder we ignored before. You will face two more Faceless Ones. Go down the ladder but be careful there is an enemy waiting to pounce.

The last faith Slum Hound

It’s a Slum Hound. It has two attack patterns – a rush and a 2 hit combo. Watch for the tells. When it rushes jump over it and when it slashes, dodge roll. Go up the right ladder to fight another Old Vigilante. Keep going up to find a coffin.

The Last Faith Weapons: Corrupted Star

Inside is a new throwable weapon – Corrupted Star. It has a decent arcing range. Try it out if you would like, it uses mana – so be wary. Drop back and go left to find a pathway blocked with a big carved marble block. You cannot move it or smash it in this demo build.

The Last Faith Weapons: Spinal Chain Blade

Go to the right now past both ladders. You will enter a graveyard. Keep going till you come across your second coffin. Take the Spinal Chain Blade inside. This has great range and is better than both the axe and the sword you currently have.

Go back the way you came. Take the ladder closest to the immovable marble block previously and go up. Keep going up till you reach the central courtyard again. Go up the ladder we previously ignored last time we were here.

Go across the terrace and you will come across a lever you cannot move. The next one you can and it drops a ladder down to the courtyard below.

Go into the room on the left. There is an Infected Wanderer on top to the left. He will chuck Molotovs at you. Dodge roll, since you will take damage-over-time from fire. Jump up and take him out.

Keep going up and take out the Faceless one and the infected wanderer on top. Remember to break boxes. You need all the consumables you can get your hands on. Once on top, go left.  A short cutscene will play.

You will face two new enemy types here – a Grave Hound and a Grave Digger. The Grave hound rushes you once you are in range. He is slow and so jump or dodge roll his attacks. The Grave digger has two attacks – a green arcing range poison attack and a floor (dropping a mine) attack with red goop/disease. Both can be rolled through. Take them out with your big sword.  

Jump up to the second floor and take the other Grave digger out. Continue up the ladder to the roof. There is an Infected Wanderer on top. Roll immediately to avoid getting hit. Take him out.

Jump across the balconies to take out the Infected Wanderer on the top balcony. Take out the Wanderer on the lower balcony. Pick up the consumable.  A voice says something to you – it is not relevant in this demo, but it is creepy nonetheless.

Drop down the other side and move right (from where the Hound rushed you) to find a secret item. The prompt shows up when you get close. I got bullets.

The Last Faith Weapons: Moonshade Tears

Go left now past the ladder into a room with your third coffin.  Inside you will find Moonshade Tears. This is a freezing/ice off hand weapon that consumes mana.

Go left and you come across stairs going down.  Another Infected Wanderer on top. Jump up and kill him. Take the next ladder up to encounter another Infected Wanderer.

Take him out with extreme prejudice and jump on the balcony to the left so you can move right to take down the flying Rotten Cold One coming at you.

Kill it and move to the right to find another Infected Wanderer. Drop down and hit the switch to activate the ladder that was shown in the cutscene when we first entered this area.

Jump down to the stairs and move left to find a ladder going down. Go down. A mini boss fight next. A temporary checkpoint, mana replenish item, and healing items await. Pick them up.

The Last Faith Mini Boss Walkthrough: Cold One Shielder

Go right into the room to find two hounds and the mini-boss – Cold One Shielder. The hounds we have faced before, so just dodge roll, and take them out.

The boss has 2 attacks – a rush attack that ends with him hitting either wall and providing an opening or a ground pound. He does the rush most of the time. It’s simple enough to jump over. End him.

This concludes Part 1 of The Last Faith extended demo walkthrough.
