Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox is an indie game with the intent to recreate the amazing turn-based, first person RPGs from the golden age of PC gaming using modern game engine technology. Rich classics such as the Might & Magic series, Eye of the Beholder and the like have inspired this new title which, when finished will put its players into a literally infinite fantasy world filled with procedurally generated content. The Sword of Ahkranox isn't trying to compete with the larger, professionally developed RPG titles out there, but instead our aim is to fill a large gap that we believe has existed in game technology since the mid-nineties. It is definitely a must-have for all enthusiasts of the quintessential RPG. The game's procedural engine can generate an infinite number of weapons, items, spells, monsters, dungeons, cities, countryside and even dialogue, allowing the player to explore the game with no end and no reason to stop.
So it's time to talk about intro cinematics! That's right, we've been preparing one for Malevolence for QUITE a while. Die-hard fans of the project will remember that we released the narrative track for it a good while ago, voiced by the ever-so-talented Karen Kahler...

So it's time to talk about intro cinematics! That's right, we've been preparing one for Malevolence for QUITE a while. Die-hard fans of the project will remember that we released the narrative track for it a good while ago, voiced by the ever-so-talented Karen Kahler:
So, the cinematic will show an old book in a dark room, lit by candles. As the narrative progresses, the pages of the book will turn, revealing the wonderful ink-splatter artwork being done by the lovely Sophie Davidson.
They're looking PARTICULARLY awesome so far, despite all of the above being works in progress. Sophie has been working with us since back when Malevolence was just a card game, too, so she really knows what's what.
Anyway, as always, you guys will be the first to see the cinematic when it's finished in a couple of months.
In the meantime, keep being awesome on the (still secret) forum and please, please, please do your best to share the link to our Steam Greenlight page everywhere you can! Facebook, Twitter, Forums, communities! Everywhere! The only way we'll get on there is if we get the word out!
