Valdis Story: Abyssal City announced

Word has reached my ear that Valdis Story: Abyssal City, a side-scrolling action RPG, is in development courtesy of EndlessFluff Games.

Here’s the premise:

Over 40 years ago the Dark Goddess Myrgato attacked and killed her creator, the All Mother Valdis. Since this event Myrgato has been at war with her twin sister the Goddess of Light Alagath. The war has wreaked havoc on the land and the hope of mankind is dwindling as they are forced to choose a side or perish. Wyatt has been following a trail of clues for the past 5 years left by his father that he believes will lead him to find a way to end the Goddess War.

Do you like bullet points? Of course you do! Here are some of those, accompanying each of the game’s main features:

  • Intense combat weaving sword and sorcery together seamlessly.
  • Equipment and Customizable skills to fit your own unique fighting style.
  • Unique magic souls that aid in combat and traversing the ruins of the city.
  • Interconnected zones allow you to explore new areas or backtrack.

EndlessFluff have been posting videos periodically as they develop the game. One of them dates back to 2007, meaning that this has been in development in one form or another for quite a long time. Here are two much more recent videos, one showing off the game’s magic and leveling systems, and a second showing off hand-to-hand combat:

Valdis Story appears to have something of a playable build available already despite the fact that the game is still in development; you can nab that here.

The game is planned for a Windows release, with a Mac port likely to follow. There is some possibility of a Linux port as well, but the developers haven’t committed one way or another on that. No word on a release date yet; I’ll be sure to mention it once I find out! The game is planned for release in early 2013.
