Demise: Rise of the Ku'Tan

Old-school medieval fantasy hack & slash RPG (dungeon crawl) with a fairly big 3D dungeon (1st person), and decent replay value.

Story (background): Lord Gherrick's realm is attacked by demons emerging from the mines of Dejenol. After the assault is quelled, the player is dispatched into the mines in an attempt to locate and destroy the primordial evil at its center.

Game world:

  • Permanent, shared (state & map-reveal) among all player characters.
  • Over 30 dungeon levels, 500 monsters, 500 items, 130 spells.
  • Switch among your player characters any time, or combine them into a party (optionally all having bound monster/NPC companions).
  • On death wait for rescue (by game, but money loss + ageing), or switch to other player character and continue (optionally rescuing dead ones).
  • Multiplayer co-op (up to 16 players).
  • Only full game-world saving (1 manual & 1 auto backup).
  • Dungeon more-or-less randomly re-populated over time.
