Manor of the Damned is a retro inspired action RPG that invokes the memories from the great console games of times past. The game has a deep storyline, intense action, puzzle solving and exploration. You play a destitute wandering vampyre who agrees to help rid a village of a raiding specpyre family. The game features multiple weapons, semi-destructible environments, retro inspired sound effects and graphics, an industrial music sound track, and vampyres that turn into spectres and feed on souls!

Hey everyone!

I'm very happy to say that the new version of Manor of the Damned is available. We've put a lot of work into this release and took a lot of your comments and requests into consideration. Here is a run down of the new features:

  • Added 3 new songs
  • Item name shown on weapon switch menu
  • Various bug fixes
  • English / Swedish language support
  • Unicode support
  • New title screen
  • Tab now skips the current music track playing
  • New game + mode
  • Fixed OSX and Linux config file location
  • Made boss 2 harder
  • Reworked boss 3 behavior
  • Many more secret rooms
  • New monster behaviors
  • Hotkey enabled weapon L/R hand settings

Also, Slushy_ just posted a really awesome preview video for Manor of the Damned! You can find it here:

All the people saying they want a copy in the comments and how awesome the game looks is incredibly inspiring for an indie developer. We are dropping the price by 40% so that the people who didn't get a free copy can pick it up at reduced price.

Thanks for your support!

Is it just me, or does Lylith move about twice as fast as she does in this video? Youtube.com

I can't dodge her at all and she's really hard to hit. It's enough to make me feel like there's an item I'm missing or something similar. Seriously, watching this guy easily step out of the way of her attacks while she inerringly nails me every time makes me feel like something's either horribly wrong or I'm not meant to be able to beat her yet.

Turns out if your version is 1.0.5, the boss is faster than she's supposed to be and you'll need 1.0.6, which I got by e-mailing the dev.

Is version 1.0.6 also available for the Mac? I'm just about to download the game but if there is a bug with version 1.0.5 then I guess I should wait.

It will be very shortly. Possibly even tonight. I can PM you once the files have been approved by Desura.

I can't decide where to place this, hopefully it's fine here.
In Skylar's (auto?)biography , you used "tomb" in place of "tome". Clunky dialogue (monologue?) at places - "his mind used to be used".
