Sword of the Necromancer is a dungeon-crawler action RPG with Rogue-like elements where you can revive your defeated enemies to make them fight alongside you.

What would you do to bring back someone you love?

Turn your foes into allies using the forbidden powers of the Sword of the Necromancer and help Tama reach the dungeon's depths in order to gain enough power to bring Koko back from the dead.

Gather a little army of monsters, equip yourself with weapons and relics and level up to take on the guardians that stand between you and your objective.

Sword of the Necromancer is inspired by Rogue-like games like Enter the Gungeon, 2D Zelda games like A Link to the Past and monster-catching mechanics like those from Azure Dreams. The aim is to create a fluid battle system, with head-to-head combat as its main focus while leaning on monster summons for special actions and attacks.

Sword of the Necromancer will be launching on December 10th on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series versions will follow later.

Sword of the Necromancer has also been selected for the Steam Game Festival: Autumn Edition. In celebration, there will be a 24/7 live stream of the game and a playable demo made available during the festival. Catch the Sword of the Necromancer live-stream here.

All week from October 7th - 13th, the Steam Game Festival will shine a spotlight on all the new exciting games due to be released within the next six months. As part of the festivities, Sword of the Necromancer will have a 24/7 live-stream of the first two levels containing two of the five bosses from the game. Also, during the festival players will be able to get their hands on a playable demo of the first level of the game, with two levels becoming available afterwards on October 14th for selected streamers!
