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.

Poe's Foes Teaser

News 0 comments

It's been roughly one year since we took the first steps to bring this game to life, and so this Halloween we decided to create a little teaser showing some of the Foes Poe will face on his journey, including bats, spider brains, and more.

All the music is original and scored exclusively for the game by our talented composer.

Enjoy!

You wouldn't want to play it as it is now. Its still buggy and we still have more features to add. We're working on getting one out soon though!

That's where the infinite mode comes in. It will be a randomized, infinite level where it just gets tougher and tougher until you give up or die!

Not free, but not too much either. Were thinking we can get an 8 hour campaign, two player local and online co-op, and a NG+/infinite dungeon. What would you be willing to pay for that?

To be honest that sounds like alot, but this all depends on how well the story is written, how hard the game is, the mechanics, ect. For this (Witout a Demo) I would probably pay $5 max, if I had a demo or something to test everything on, probably $10, maybe $15 if it had 4 player Co-op.

Thanks for the insight! We'll definitely be making a demo available, and think that you will find the other issues to your liking.

Maybe, the second player can be another great poet? Add spells like words from his Poems, like Never More would summon a flock of ravens ect...

Second player is not a poet, but is just as (if not more) awesome. And we do have plans for spells.
