'Sword of the Necromancer' Kickstarter 900% Funded With A Few More Days To Go

by Rainier on May 4, 2020 @ 11:04 a.m. PDT

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.

Last month JanduSoft and Grimorio of Games launched a Kickstarter campaign for Sword of the Necromancer, and with three days to go (ends May 8th), has surpassed 900% of its funding goal, and has already reached all of its stretch goals.

The stretch goals include new game modes (Colosseum Mode, Boss Rush, Dungeon Builder), remastered music, a song by Dale North (Wizard of LegendNintendo Minuteand Emi Evans (Nier Series, Dark Souls) and even an animated opening!

Key Features

  • Turn your foes into allies: use the Sword of the Necromancer to revive defeated monsters and make them fight alongside you.
  • Gather weapons and relics: each weapon is different from the others thanks to the procedural  weapon generation system, which gives them various effects and  attributes.
  • Fight with all your might: defeat your enemies using a variety of weapons and objects and dominating the fluid head-to-head battle system.
  • Level up: enhance your character by fighting enemies and upgrade your stats. Improve your summoned monsters by fighting alongside them.
  • Death is not the end: Each try gets you closer to the Necromancer. You will lose all your equipped weapons and monsters, but you will retain half the level you achieved in your run. Also, you can choose to exit the dungeon at some moments, losing all your level progress but maintaining all your  equipment.
  • Learn the truth: Discover Tama and Koko's past as you advance through the dungeon.
  • Local co-op play:Use the Flask of Homunculus to create a copy of the playable character and play with a friend in local co-op game.
