Demo Coverage -

  2. Extended Demo Part 2

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.

This is Part 2 of the extended demo walkthrough. For Part 1 of the extended demo walkthrough for The Last Faith, go here!

The door past the Cold One Shielder opens after the miniboss dies. Go forward and jump down. Break the chest and jump to the small platform on your left.

There is an enemy down there to your right. It’s a Stray Cold One. It does a basic jump attack, dodge left or right accordingly and take it out.

Go to the far right, past the ladder. This is a smashable wall. So, smash it.

On the other side is a consumable and a lever that opens a door back to the courtyard. There is also a grapple point, but we lack the necessary skill/tool for it. Go back to the ladder.

Go down the ladder to find a lever, a consumable and a chest. The lever drops a ladder down to one of the very first rooms we came in – the one with the checkpoint. Smash the wall on the left of the lever. It’s a secret room.

The Last Faith Weapons: Nighttide’s Rout

Break the boxes, pick up the consumables and open your fourth coffin. Inside, you will find Nighttide’s Rout – a trident weapon. Equip it. It’s a whip-like weapon with great range and in my opinion the best weapon in the demo.

Drop down the ladder we lowered earlier and replenish your bars at the permanent checkpoint. This will respawn all enemies, FYI. Go up the ladder again till you come back to where you fought the Stray Cold One and smashed the wall to the grapple hook room with the lever.

Ignore the respawned enemy and go right through the unlocked door. Go up the ladder fighting the respawned enemies – till you reach the courtyard where you had encountered the Grave Hound and Grave Digger for the first time, they too have respawned. The switch we hit earlier has dropped the previously unreachable ladder down.

Go up this ladder and pick up the consumable. At the top go to your right into the room to meet Mariano. Watch the cutscene, pick up the consumable. Go through the door into a balcony with a ladder leading down.  

Drop down to find a lever. Hit it to open the door to your left. Ignore it and move right across the bridge (?) to find an elevator. Ignore it for the time being.   

Go right. There is a woman standing on the roof. She has a nice sword in her hand. She disappears with the wind. You will not see her again in this demo. Keep moving forward.

In the next room is a Slum Hound. Take it out. There is a grapple point that is of no use to us right now and a ladder leading down. Take the ladder down. Keep going down to find another Slum Hound. Take it out and head down.

Two Faceless ones at the next level. Kill them and keep moving. Another Slum Hound at the bottom, Take it out and head right.

In the next room is an elevator that doesn’t work and another permanent checkpoint. Use it. And keep moving to the right and through the door.

The next room has a Grave Digger and Rotten Cold One. This got a little tricky for me, but stick close to the Grave Digger on his blind side and hit the flying enemy – the trident/whip weapon works best in this situation. Ignore the ladder and go right up the stairs.

Another Rotten Cold One. Dodge roll its divebombs and take him out. Take out the second one as well and check out the ornate locked door.

Come back and go up the ladder. Ignore the one heading down for now.

Three Old Vigilantes on top of the balconies and the roof. Stay in the lower balcony and take them out within reach of your Nighttide’s Rout.

The last faith

The Last Faith Weapons : Old Ashes

Once you get to the one on the roof, a flying enemy swoops down so watch out. Drop down to the platform below on your left and go through the doorway. An Old Vigilante and two Faceless Ones are inside. Take them out, ignore the ladder going up and go through the door on the left to find another Coffin. Inside is the Old Ashes – a left hand weapon.

The last faith

Drop down from the balcony with the coffin on it. The second permanent checkpoint is below.

The last faith

Go right. Ignore the ladder going down and go up the stairs through the doorway. Run past the steaming manhole covers and go up the ladder, this is where we were a minute ago.

The last faith

Jump up the balconies, across the platform and into the room where we ignored the ladder earlier. Now go up the ladder.

On the left is a woman in chains, destroy this contraption to unlock the first lock on the ornate totally-not-a-boss door earlier.

The last faith

Leave the room, bound across the roof, and jump down to the ornate door again. This time go down the ladder next to the locked ornate door. Take the mana replenish item from the statue below and go through the door on the left.

There is a Slum Hound waiting for you. Ignore the ladder heading down for now.

The last faith

The Last Faith Weapons: Doppietta

Take it out. Next, move to the left. Then pull the lever. And now go through the door. Two more Slum Hounds inside this room. Take them out and open the coffin.

Inside you will find Doppietta – a dual barrel shotgun. It has bad range and not a ton of damage. However, you can equip it for some decent crowd control.

The last faith

Next, return to the previous room, ignoring the ladder in the middle of the room and drop down. Keep taking out the slum hounds on each level and then go right on the bottom level. Ignore the doorway on the left for now.

There is another lady in a chain contraption once you go through the right-side doorway. Destroy it to open the second lock on the ornate door.

Next, turn back and through the doorway, we came through and straight through the doorway next to the ladder we ignored before. Inside there is a Deranged Lady and an Old Vigilante.

Take them out and ignore the ladder in the middle of the room for now. Go through the door on the left of the room.

Further ahead, there is an elevator and a lever in front. However, ignore both and go down the ladder.

Break the chest. Drop down and destroy the 3rd lady in chains contraption, unlocking the 3rd and final lock on the ornate door.

Next, there is a ladder and lever that drops the ladder down on the right side of the room, but ignore them since they don’t lead anywhere and move back up the ladder you came down in.

On top at the elevator area, go right back into the house. You can go down the ladder in the middle of the room and kill more enemies to get loot or you can head for the boss through the door on the right side.

Next, head straight through the right-side doorway if you want to go for the boss. Fight your way back up the ladders through Slum Hounds till you reach the ornate doorway.

Go through the ornate door, pick up the consumables on your way in.

The Last Faith demo boss entrance

Boss Fight: Dr. Ridley Hermann

Inside is Dr. Ridley Hermann. A short cutscene and now a boss fight.

The Last Faith Boss Fight

Dr Ridley has 4 moves in Phase 1:

  • A windup stab followed by a quick back swipe.
  • A quick double slash
  • A ranged tendril attack that covers 80% of the screen
  • A telegraphed tendril attack that rises from the floor in five locations in the room (this happens twice in succession).

Once you reach 75% of his health he gets stunned and you can finish him off and then Phase 2 starts. He regains full health and becomes a puddle of blood. He has 3 moves in this phase:

  • The puddle of blood moves around the room and he jumps and shoots down diagonally,
  • He jumps up and sticks to the ceiling and launches 4 tendril balls that bounce around the room,
  • Tendrils shoot up from the floor twice – once in four locations on the floor but are wider now and the second time from the ceiling and the floor.
  • He also drops puddles of goop in his wake as he moves around in blood form.

I was not able to beat him in the time that I had with The Last Faith. However, I was having success by using combustion powder with the Nighttide’s Rout due to the range. My parry timing was off but high-skill players can get a lot of mileage from parrying his attacks. However of the six tries I had on him the lowest I got was 30% on Phase 2. I wouldn’t suggest a slow weapon in this fight.

Another thing to note is that, if you die – you will have to farm consumables again. The Last Faith doesn’t regenerate health or mana potions, whatever you use up in a run is gone. The only way is to go farm again.

Beating this boss ends the demo.

Thank you for reading this walkthrough of the extended demo for The Last Faith! The Last Faith comes out on November 15th, 2023.
