There’s a game live on Kickstarter that I think a lot of you might be interested in. Are you fans of Hollow Knight? Well, so are the developers of Crowsworn.
In Fearanndal, a dark and oppressive world, where even the air seems to carry weight, you awake from a deep slumber. You find yourself in a coffin, buried in an unmarked grave, surrounded by unfamiliar territory. Seemingly void of purpose, you venture forth attempting to retrace your steps and regain your lost memories.
Leaving your grave behind, you discover the small dilapidated village of Angsthel. The village is inhabited by peculiar characters with unknown intentions. The inhabitants speak of a world cursed by a dark god. They speak of a world forced into perpetual penance for the sins of its fathers.
Attempting to unravel the mysteries surrounding Angsthel sends you down a perilous path. As you lay waste to monsters that stand in your way, you continue to explore the neighboring lands, in an attempt to uncover the truth behind your burial and the secrets surrounding this strange curse.
So that’s the story. The gameplay is very similar to Hollow Knight. The campaign was fully funded in less than three hours after going live, and shortly after it hit its first stretch goal. This thing is going to be big. I’ve backed many games on Kickstarter, but aside from GHOSTS, this one really does feel like it’s the most destined to be the next big thing. I actually am more interested in this world than Hollow Knight, since it’s humans and creatures, rather than just insects. But that’s just my personal opinion, Hollow Knight is great.
