Sword of the Necromancer Gets Final Developer Diary Video
JanduSoft and Grimorio of Games released their third and final developer diary video for action roguelike Sword of the Necromancer. This entry focuses on the creation of the game’s story and the inspirations behind the premise, particularly Shadow of the Colossus.
Sword of the Necromancer follows Tama, a rogue tasked with escorting priestess Koko on her continental pilgrimage. Unfortunately, Koko dies on their travels, and Tama carries her body to the Necromancer’s crypt, where the power to resurrect the dead is said to lie. Two-player local co-op can also be unlocked through an item called the Flask of the Homunculus, which creates a copy of Tama. Sword of the Necromancer is set to launch for PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on January 28, 2021.
