February 2015 gameplay trailer | Teaser teaser
Players control Bathoryn, a hero in a Gothic world, seeking to liberate seven great towers.
Bathoryn must battle his way through a doomed land packed with gruesome pixel art foes before ascending (or sometimes descending) each tower, defeating puzzles, traps and monsters alike. At the heart of each keep, he must confront a mighty overlord. Defeat it and Bathoryns quest continues. Fail, and youll die gruesomely - mauled by werewolves, disintegrated by floating monstrosities, squashed by great weights or torn apart by hidden blades. And you will fail...
Reminiscent of classics like Altered Beast, Shadow of The Beast, and Ghosts 'n Goblins, the difficulty of the combat and platforming can best be described as... brutal. Save points help but they're rare. So it's down to you and your ability with a sword.

The game is split up into seven areas, each of which has two distinct and very different sections. The first (horizontal) section is your progression towards the tower and has larger focus on your combat skills, with many interesting and satisfying ways to die... If you complete this part and defeat that section's mini-boss, then you can begin to ascend the Tower. These Towers have a larger emphasis on platforming and timing with puzzles and a whole range of wonderfully creative (and deadly) traps. If you reach the the top of tower, your reward is to meet the area's overlord....
