We make games

Dungeon Crawl

Swords & Shadows

Swords & Shadows is a top down hack 'n' slash inspired by Zelda and Diablo. Adventure through endless dungeons, find treasure and defeat monsters! The dungeons are procedurally generated in a cute low-poly style and the gameplay has a challenging but fun feel to match. The current build is pre-alpha and demonstrates combat and terrain generation. Jump in and fight some Skeletons and Bats!
