Sword of the Necromancer First Dev Diary Showcases Mechanics and Features

Game developers JanuSoft S.L and Grimorio of Games recently released a brand new developer diary video of upcoming video game Sword of the Necromancer.

The video is four minutes long and shares some information about the game’s mechanics and features. This is a monster summoning roguelike video that will launch later this year on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series S/X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. This will be the first of the three videos coming out later on until the release of the game.

Sword of the Necromancer is a top-down action roguelike with a unique twist: you can resurrect any enemy you kill as an undead minion to fight alongside you! On top of that, there’s a fluid combat system with a smorgasbord of weapons and gear to choose from. Advance through the dungeon and weigh the consequences of what armaments to equip as you amass your little army of the undead!

As you descend this procedurally-generated dungeon, you’ll have to make some tough, tactical decisions. Should you fall in battle you’ll lose all your gear and half of your level, so be careful! If you’re really feeling adventurous, you can clone yourself, allowing for a friend to jump in for some two-player local co-op.
