A downloadable game for Windows


This is early demo build for Clarent game. The game is action adventure game based on celtic mythology.

The demo contains 3 weapons, 4 spells, 1 relic and 2 techniques. Current demo doesn't contain boss battle. Plan was to include

To unlock Berserker Mode, you must kill fomori warrior.

It's recommended to play this with controller that has proper d-pad, such as DS3 or DS4. They do not work natively, so Xinput Wrapper is needed as the game only supports Xinput controllers for now.

Please check the controls for keyboard and controller before starting the game.

This game requires DirectX 9.0c to run. If the game crashes on you, get it.

The game content is subject to change. This does NOT represent the final product.

If you are interested in following the game's development, please follow me on twitter @ArikadoDev.

Please leave feedback on game's page or on my twitter. Feedback is really important and very welcome. I need it to improve the game and make it as good as possible.

Moves list:

[attack] = Basic attack.
[attack] (hold) = Basic combo which can be performed only once first hit has connected. Second attack cancels enemy action.
[up] + [attack] = Launches enemy up air. Can be used as counter for stabs.

the music was kind of short but it was very good
most of the sound effects were pretty good but the voice the character makes when he gets hit is really bad
not 100% sure if I like the slower and more deliberate nature of the combat as compared to SotN but it definitely carries a good weight to it and you can still back dash cancel attacks so it works

not much going on with the level design so hopefully you'll have some puzzles or something in the future
metroidvania is my shit so I'm pretty excited for this one

Looks promising, controls are a little fustratring, I need to play this games with a controller. Seems cool enough otherwise.
