Indie publisher Ratalaika Games joins together with Start Warp and Meridian4. To announce the up-and-coming release of The Dark Prophecy.
90s Nostalgia Strikes Again
The 2D pixel art, Point & Click, is a 90s retro-inspired adventure game. Due out on the 16th of September 2022 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Microsoft Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch. You are welcomed into a peaceful mediaeval village where life is calm and safe, but ominously it’s about to change, and not in a nice way.
The Dark Prophecy presents an atmospheric classic fantasy tale set in the Middle Ages, featuring magic, witchcraft, wizards, castles, kings and peasants plus a host of interesting cast and features. At the beginning of the game, the main character, an ordinary village boy called Jacob, accidentally finds himself at the origins of an unusual situation. The goal is to progress through this story to the end, to its logical conclusion. More specifically, to get to the royal magician and talk to him; which is not at all easy for a simple village lad.
The Adventure Begins Here
Jacob, sitting by the night lake, receives a message from one of the magicians of the neighbouring kingdoms. He must get to the archmage of his kingdom, Merlin, in order to convey an important message to him – otherwise, Jacob’s entire kingdom and village will perish within a day. His path to the castle begins very modestly – right in his village. First, he will have to find a way to get into the village witch’s hut and then carefully study the familiar landscape in order to find something new and hidden from public view.
“One favourite puzzle is the task of making the best soup in the kingdom, where you have to select a combination of ingredients, and cracking the witch’s chest, where you have to select the correct sequence of water runes to open the lock. There are many on offer”. Denis, founder of Start Warp.
So who’s ready to roll back the years and bring the 90s to a modern console?
