Beldarak Games writes in to announce the release of Song of the Myrne: What Lies Beneath, an action RPG created using those ubiquitous Oryx sprite sheets that I’ve mentioned on a few occasions.
You get back to your home after a day of hard work at your field to find that the love of your life, your bunny, has been murdered.You then try to find who did that and go to the village of Namok where you hear about a dungeon in which you could find your wife’s murderer. Then begin the descent of the dungeon where lies the truth about the murder…
It’s deliberately weird (I mean, your wife is literally a rabbit) and more than a little tongue-in-cheek.
In terms of mechanics, the developer states that the game is linear, action-heavy, and light on dialog and role-playing. He describes the game as a
top-down action RPG where you’re free to play as you want. You can be an archer, a mage, a fighter… or some mixes between all of this, the game use no classes so you build your character as you want while you level up and chose which equipment suits your play style the best.
This trailer should give you the general idea:
Song of the Myrne: What Lies Beneath is available for Windows, Mac and Linux for $2.49 through Desura and through IndieGameStand. The developer states that the game’s soundtrack comes free with purchase.
