‘Nekro‘ is an overhead, randomly generated action game about summoning evil forces of darkness to do your bidding! The project is making good progress after a successful kickstarter campaign. Studio Dark Forge is shooting for beta by the end of 2013 and full release in 2014.
Hailing from the era of great classics such as Myth: The Fallen Lords, Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Dungeon Keeper and more, DarkForge is creating a game rooted deep in PC gaming’s history, but with all the flourishes you’ve come to expect from a modern experience.
- A beautiful and rich world to explore: Nekro will have a host of unique tilesets and locations. From the burning hells to the ravaged lands of the east there will always be a new place to go, and as always, all of them are randomly generated. The game will put a big emphasis on exploration and discovery. The world is teeming with things to find and enemies to conquer.
- Unique creature-based gameplay: Your summons will do your bidding but are not under your direct control. Each creature you create will have a set of behaviors unique to it. It’s up to you to find the best combination of creatures to use for each situation. However, the nekro himself isn’t powerless. If all else fails, you can always run intro the fray; transforming into a powerful demon and lay waste to your enemies.
- World changing events: Each faction of the game (the nekro, the humans and the neutrals) gets their own world events that happen at random and can drastically effect the outcome of a fight. The nekro casts the world into Eternal Darkness, boosting his power. The neutrals summon The Werewolves of the Full Moon, spawning deadly werewolves across the land. And the humans call upon The Crusaders of the King, sending out extremely powerful templars to hunt monsters.
- Available for PC, Mac and Linux: And completely DRM Free! (We hate it as much as you)
