'Crypt Run' - New Screens

by Rainier on July 18, 2013 @ 2:18 a.m. PDT

A Wizard's Lizard is an ever-changing medieval fantasy hack 'n' slash game that isn't over when you lose your life.

Crypt Run dungeons change each play-through and always offer new situations to handle.

Crypt Run presents combat, exploration, and collection in a playful medieval fantasy world. What makes Crypt Run special is its unique death mechanic -- the game isn’t over when you die in Crypt Run!

Lost Decade Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the development, fans interested in support Crypt Run can back the game here.

When players die in Crypt Run, they find themselves transported to the Realm of the Dead. This new realm has an otherworldly appearance and is inhabited by evil dead creatures (some of which you yourself put there!). In this way, dying begins an adventure in a new realm. (This unique death mechanic will allow for extremely deep gameplay, including challenges that require transporting between realms to complete!).

Although it’s a hardcore game that requires considerable skill to play well, Crypt Run’s art style is intended to be accessible and lighthearted. Since the game involves so much blood and death, we feel that these heavy themes are easier to consume in large quantities if delivered with a playful aesthetic. Though Crypt Run is a cartoony game, its subject matter is quite mature!

The dungeons in Crypt Run are procedurally generated, meaning they are randomly created by the game during runtime. The developers apply heuristic techniques to make the level design feel as handmade as possible. Our goal is to provide a fresh and exciting experience every time you pla Crypt Runy !

Crypt Run can be played with a keyboard or a gamepad. The action takes place in dungeons, which are comprised of a series of rooms packed with interesting monsters, traps, and loot. Explore the rooms to collect powerups and dodge hazards. Attack and kill monsters by throwing swords, daggers, axes, and other fun weapons.
