About the game.
In Slain, the hero fights to free a land that is controlled by a number of towers. The game is played across two types of levels. Type one is a side-scrolling action based level. These levels contain plenty of monsters and areas guarded by sub-bosses. The character has various attacks to aid his progress through these levels and in some parts can change into a wolf/beast. Second are the main towers, these levels are vertical and are puzzle-based as the player must climb to the top, or descend to the bottom. There will still be fighting along the way but most fights will be part of puzzles. At the end of these levels Bathoryn will have to fight and beat the tower boss before moving onto the next area and tower.
The game is created using pixel art giving it a retro look and it makes use of darker imagery that contains gratuitous pixel gore. Within the game the player will encounter killer traps, tricks, and monsters and in keeping with the style of older video games, the game is very challenging.
And here is our first pre-alpha teaser. Warning contain pixel gore!
And some screen shots from the game.
Hope you all enjoy.
and Prepare to be slain!
