About

Set in an industrial gothic universe, you’ll hack, slash and cast your way through a treacherous hand-painted world in solo, 2-player couch co-op or endless arcade mode!

Choose your class and upgrade your gear with metroidvania-style exploration and a focus on strategic real-time combat.

Discover a story of The Empire, a once small kingdom now under threat from so-called Savages. They hunt a mysterious element known as Lunarium which resides in The Empire and you, a dauntless recruit, must protect the land at the front line.

Key Features

  • Beautifully hand-painted 2D graphics full of detail and dark atmospherics.
  • Play the Campaign or Endless Mode solo or grab a friend with the 2-player couch co-op support.

  • A sturdy levelling system and in-game economy which gives access to over 80 unique items. Fight, collect and upgrade!
  • Action-packed combat system provides a diverse choice of dealing damage. A suitable strategy is the key to success.
  • 13 open-ended and fully explorable levels with elements of the metroidvania genre and packed with quests, boss fights and notes expanding the lore.
