About this game

Become the hero of an epic quest in Elderand, a metroidvania that will test your will and skill. Heads will literally roll in this gruesome, retro-inspired action platformer, where only the strong will survive in brutal, skill-based combat against terrifying creatures.

Through the darkness and madness, promised glory awaits.
Wield a variety of killing instruments and abilities to test your metal against towering, bone-chilling bosses. Explore a twisted Lovecraftian world shrouded in darkness and madness. RPG elements allow you to customize your battle experience to your liking, from your character’s appearance to skills, stats, and weapons. Slay or be slain as you collect glory and treasure in this nightmarish 2D world.

Glory and riches await those who can spill the required blood and guts to collect it.

KEY FEATURES:
•Wield an arsenal of killing devices, including whips, swords, daggers, axes, bows, and more. From a magical staff that shoots bursts of energy to a giant sword, different weapons have different stats and capabilities, so find the ones that you enjoy battling beasts with the most!
•Satisfying Metroidvania-style exploration meets terrifying Lovecraftian creatures in this detailed hand-drawn pixel world with glorious gothic aesthetics and handcrafted level design.
•RPG elements let you customize your experience to best suit your play style, from your character’s appearance to their skills, stats, and weapons.
Collect loot from exploration and fallen enemies and then use it to upgrade your weapons via crafting.
•Travel to the many corners of this perilous land, such as an inviting village with merchants, a forest, a temple prison, floating islands, a cursed Cathedral, and the hellscape that is Elderand itself.
•More than 60 different enemy types and around a dozen bosses for your slaying pleasure.
•Collect lost letters and other correspondence from the poor souls who came before you to learn more about the darkness taking hold of this grim land.

What a great game, at least until the ending. I feel like I was being built up to a great fight and an understanding if why the main character was important, but nope. EDIT: went back and tried to fully explore more, in the end its not a bad idea on how the story unfolds but it can leave people like me a bit underwhelmed. Game really needs a HUD fix for when you pick up items. Doesn't tell you what it is.

Lots of potential, but feels like a very stylized beta version. Had to refund due to there being too many bugs(such as purchasing items from trader only to find out the inventory button is only for relics) no options to customize HUD which should be standard in this type of game. The buttons are too small and too close, and in a strange order. The visuals are amazing, but for a PAID game it falls short.

Fun game so far. My last save file has an issue. When I load the save I'm invisible and can't move from the coliseum. Weapons make the sound and ammo drops when I use arrows or bombs but nothing on the screen. Can you fix this I have 96% percent of the map revealed. Don't want to start over.
