Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox announced

Word has it that there’s a first-person RPG on the horizon with a “literally infinite” game world. It goes by the name Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox (which sounds to me like Stan Marsh’s older sister trying to say “equinox”). Interestingly, it seems Malevolence features turn-based, grid-based movement a la the early Might and Magic games, but with free mouselook a la Legend of Grimrock.

I quote from the game’s official website:

The game’s procedural engine can generate an infinite number of weapons, items, spells, monsters, dungeons, cities, countryside and even dialogue, allowing the player to explore the game with no end and no reason to stop.

We are currently working hard to reach our milestone of releasing an official, playable demo of the game by around July/August 2012, and the final product on December 21, 2012.

Note: the developer’s blog goes all the way back to April 2010, which means that I’m really late finding out about this game. Hence, the “Well it’s new to me” tag.
