Game developers JanduSoft S.L and Grimorio of Games has recently released the third and final Developer Diary of upcoming monster summoning action roguelike video game Sword of the Necromancer with the new release date.
It was announced before that the game’s release window was December 2020, but it seems it has now moved to January 28. It will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The final dev diary video features the inspiration behind the story and lore of the upcoming monster summoning dungeon-crawler.
Sword of the Necromancer is a dungeon-crawler action-RPG with roguelike elements where you can revive your defeated enemies to make them fight alongside you. Turn your foes into allies using the forbidden powers of the Sword of the Necromancer and help the rogue Tama reach the dungeon’s depths to summon enough power to bring her beloved priestess Koko back from the dead. Assemble a small army of monsters, equip yourself with weapons and relics, and level up to take on the guardians that stand between you and your goal.
Each attempt gets you closer to the Necromancer. Upon death you’ll lose all your equipped weapons and monsters, but you will retain part of the level you achieved in your run. As you scour deeper through the dungeon you’ll uncover more of Tama and Koko’s past. Don’t want to go it alone? Then use the Flask of Homunculus to create a copy of yourself and play with a friend in local co-op! Additionally, there are IR codes that can be scanned to make the game easier. Or harder. The choice is yours!
