EDGAR is a 2D adventure platformer starring the father of Gothic poetry, Edgar Allan Poe. Fight monsters and get loot as you chase Jack the Ripper through an alternate version of Victorian London. EDGAR is currently being developed in Unity3D by a small of team of developers. The goal of EDGAR is to create a 2D lootfest with heavy influences from Gothic literature, while combining it with imaginative gameplay and quirky customization. Bram Stoker's Dracula, and over a dozen other literary classics will have deep-rooted places within the plot of EDGAR, giving players a chance to get a "feel" for the Victorian era, even when the game is presented in a fantastical manner.

Well, enough of you asked to see some gameplay footage that we decided to actually put the pieces together and show you what we’ve got. So here we are, the first gameplay video from EDGAR.

There are a few things missing from this scene, namely the Health and Ink bars. Health will be lost when Poe takes damage, and Ink will be used as “ammo” for every type of attack. Ink can be found throughout the levels and is also dropped in a gooey mess from defeated Foes.

This is also the first time we’ve released any of the original music for the game, so we hope you enjoy it!
