A downloadable game for Windows

Deep below the cold earth lies a mural of a dragon, plunged deep into its scaled breast is Wish, the sentient long sword; the symbol of hope for the kingdom of Riccar. Five years have passed since the Crown Prince Theo defeated the dragon, sealing it deep below the castle with the sword as its jailer.

However, a disturbing spectacle occurred at the site of an ancient mausoleum, invoking a prophecy foretold in ancient times by the progenitor of the Riccar family, long before the kingdom was established:

"An arrow of red pierces the sky, and darkness awakens from eternal sleep."

The spectacle was of a meteor, glowing a bright red, streaking through the skies. It collided with the mausoleum, smashing through the ceiling and burrowing down deep into the crypt's depths. Earthquakes were felt near the ancient site, with smaller quakes rumbling throughout the surrounding cliffs, forests, and castle-town.

Hey, I liked the look of your game so I'm streaming it in 25 minutes to give you some free promo. I acknowledge this is a game in the works and will be giving critique and fun accordingly. You can watch it here if you want: https://www.twitch.tv/pixelmixery


Thank you very much! Yeah, I apologize for it being so short. It was something I put together over the month of November, but with limited time. I intended to have a full quest available but that was as far as I had got.

I don't know if this project will receive any updates, however I will likely use this engine and build on an original IP.

Thank you again for playing it and providing the constructive criticisms! I will keep the key configurations in mind on my next project! :D
