Sometimes it’s fascinating where the minds of video game developers go. Because you might think that they are going to work on a sequel to a game that many liked, but instead, they’re working on something entirely different. Such is the case with dev team Pixellore, who are the team behind the popular Subterrain game (currently on Steam). Fans have expected a sequel announcement from them for some time, but instead, they revealed today a totally different project: RemiLore.
So, what is RemiLore? Well, it’s about a girl named Remi, who is suddenly dropped into the world of Lore (get it?), and what’s more, she awakens a “supreme book of magic” also called Lore. Now, these two must work together to save the lands of Lore from monstrous golems that have overrun it. All the while trying to find a way back to Remi’s home.
The game is a hack-n-slash adventure, and in fact, the team notes that the game can be fully played with one analog stick and four buttons. That’s pretty impressive, and simple! But, don’t think that means the combat itself will be simple, RemiLore has a vast array of melee and ranged weapons that you can use at your whim to fight enemies, and given the great variety, you’ll always have something new to test until you find your perfect weapon.
And if that’s still too much for you, you can play RemiLore with a friend! Yes, you can team up to try and take down the golems together.
Other features the game has is that the game is very much procedurally generated. The stage layouts change, the items you get are random, the skills you can get aren’t always the same, it’ll ensure that every single playthrough is different.
Finally, the game has an anime style of look and lighting, and who doesn’t like anime? The team has been working on RemiLore for about 5 months, and are going to be showing it off at BIC festival 2017.
