'Monomyth' Announced, Kickstarter And Demo Planned For Next Week - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on July 23, 2021 @ 9:08 a.m. PDT

Monomyth is an immersive, first person dungeon crawling RPG in the style of Ultima Underworld, Arx Fatalis and the King's Field series.

As the sun sets on the empires of mankind and civilization crumbles under great storms ravaging the world's surface, the people of Ariath retreat to the underground. Amidst the chaos of this dying world your father, King Ferodin the Third sent an expedition to the fallen fortress city of Lysandria. It is said, that within the ruins of the fortress lies the primeval seed - a divine gift that may calm the gods' anger and put an end to the roaring thunder in the sky.

Spearheaded by your own brother, the expedition hoped to retrieve the sacred object but was never heard of again. Against your father's wish, you decide to travel to Lysandria yourself. Find your brother and retrieve the divine gift, but beware: The ancient fortress is not as deserted as it seems...

Seamlessly travel through a highly interactive, open game world, unrestricted by scripted sequences, hard-coded barriers or grid-based movement. Use swords, daggers, hammers, maces, bows or a wide range of versatile spells to overcome your foes in real-time combat! Remain unseen and unheard by sneaking through the shadows in a light and audio-based stealth system.

Talk with the inhabitants of the underworld through a detailed, keyword-based dialogue system. Trade with them or press them for information. But don’t go too far or you may suffer the consequences! Experiment with a wide range of utility items: Speed potions, water arrows, lockpicks, and many more! A highly interactive world awaits you! Douse torches, bake bread, drink from fountains, and even play instruments!

Unravel the mysteries of Lysandria as you uncover hidden passages, dive through flooded caves, and overcome the living nightmares that inhabit the ancient halls far below the mighty fortress.

In order to finance final phase of development Rat Tower Software will be launching a Monomyth a Kickstarter campaign on Tuesday, the 27th of July, 2021 (7 pm CET / 1 pm EST).

A playable demo will be released at the same time.
