An Ergastulum is a building used to hold in chains dangerous slaves, or to punish other slaves. The Ergastulum is subsurface and large enough to allow the slaves to work within it and containing narrow spaces in which they sleep. Currently in development for Vive and Oculus Rift.

I've always wanted to go more fantasy in this game which is one of the reasons I went with a new name for the project even though it is a spiritual successor to Dungeon Nightmares.

I decided to work on a new creature that would be elemental based and worked out how I wanted it to look.


This was the first design which I had mix feelings over and it didn't feel threatening enough so I decided to go back to the drawing board.

New Version

A few hours later, i settled for this new improved look.


This was more to my liking and felt more elemental.


Finishing the Elemental Attacks

After I was happy with the new look, I had to finish adding the projectiles and damage output to the player.

The above clip shows the projectiles at work.

This one is a last minute move I added called the Rage Stomp. Overall, I am pretty pleased with this new addition and will direct me the right way for anything new I decide to create.

Quick question: Will it work without VR?
