Kickstarter Check-In: Sword of the Necromancer: Revenant
Developer Grimorio of Games has begun a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for 3D action RPG Sword of the Necromancer: Revenant. The game is a sequel to 2021’s Sword of the Necromancer and is in development for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. The campaign indicates a planned release window of mid-2024.
Sword of the Necromancer: Revenant introduces a new protagonist, Kara (voiced by Sean Chiplock), with previous protagonists Tama and Koko also returning. The game sees players traveling across the world, including assisting with the restoration of the Sacred City of Euda to gain access to more facilities, while trying to vanquish the Necromancer once and for all. It takes place two years after the events of the previous game, though the developer promises that newcomers will be able to jump in and understand its events without playing the first game.
The game sees using the Sword of the Necromancer to resurrect defeated monsters as allies. They can also defeat Revenants, once great heroes whose spirits wander the world, to gain powerful summons. Its combat system includes new elements such as air combos, while monsters can have different tactics assigned. The game features solo play with an AI companion as well as split-screen co-op. It will also include the return of IR cards from the previous game — which grant players bonus items, monsters, and attributes — and the developer has expanded them into its own full-fledged trading card game.
The campaign has already passed its €15,000 funding goal and is set to run until March 2, 2023, and has numerous stretch goals planned. Those who pledge at least €20 (around $22) will receive a digital copy of the game as part of their backer rewards.
