After only a couple of days on Kickstarter Slain! By Wolf Brew Games is already tearing its way towards success. It’s no surprise though as the game is looking pretty impressive and definitely looks like it will deliver on its promise of stunning visuals with gore galore. According to the developers, Slain! Is their homage to all of the gory hack and slash games released back in the 80’s and 90’s and the influences of classics like Shadow of the Beast, Altered Beast and Ghost ‘n Goblins are clear to see.

The game stars Bathoryn, a hero that must travel the land and eradicate the evil that is infesting a series of towers. Numerous enemies are hell bent on thwarting his quest and Bathoryn will also have to deal with traps and puzzles. Comprised of seven different areas, your first goal in each is to complete a horizontal section in order to reach a tower. These sections will test your combat skills to the limit, but once you reach the tower it is time to ascend (or descent) it. The towers focus more on platforming and puzzle solving while also placing a range of deadly traps in your path. After successfully navigating the tower it is time for a showdown with the overlord.

Slain! is not for the faint of heart as the developers are promising that the combat and platforming will be brutal. You’ll get some assistance in the form of save points, but mastering the sword techniques and mana system is going to be essential for survival. Bathoryn has five different sword attacks at his disposal as well as mana abilities such as bombs and fireballs.

Visually Slain! is looking all kinds of awesome with highly detailed and beautifully animated pixel art. The game also features some amazing use of light to hammer home its gothic atmosphere. It is being created by some industry veterans and has already been in development for eighteen months. This means the estimated release date of May 2015 is all but certain. The game is already 65% funded at the time of writing, so check out its Kickstarter page to lend some support. Slain! also has a Greenlight campaign running, so don’t forget to vote “YES!” if you want see the game on Steam.

At one point or another in our lives, we have all had that dream of being chased by something horrible. For some these are once off occurrences, but for the less fortunate these types of nightmares can become a regular occurrence. Also, while adults can typically shrug off these dreams, it is often harder for children to deal with something so terrifying.

Start weak and build up your character until they are an unstoppable force. That is usually how progression works in games. Some games strip you of all powers at the start and require you to slowly regain them again, but Nephil’s Fall dares to do things a little differently.

Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons By Star Maiden Games

We’ve noticed a lot of otome visual novels popping up lately and, judging by the speed at which Mystic Destinies is getting funded on Kickstarter, there is definitely a demand for more. This urban fantasy otome visual novel focusses on the tale of a college girl who finds out that she isn’t quite as ordinary as she thought. The game is being developed by Star Maiden Games, a new start-up visual novel company who aim to make their mark on the genre with high quality, compelling titles. The team also have their sights on busting the usual genre tropes, which should be interesting.

    This looks incredible. Im sure it would have sailed to success even at twice the funding goal.
