New release: Void Pyramid

Void Pyramid
A. Hagen, developer of Ramble Planet (previously covered here), writes in to announce the release of a new post-apocalyptic, sci-fi Egyptian dungeon crawler set in “the spacefaring Egyptian empire”. The name: Void Pyramid.

In case that little summary didn’t blow your mind enough, here’s the narrative premise:

In the far future, the maniacal Prime Pharaoh rules the wastelands of Earth. Any who oppose him are exiled to the Void Pyramid. This outer space prison is populated bycriminals, beasts, and mutants. No one has ever escaped, but you must try…

Void Pyramid apparently took 2 years to develop in collaboration with one artist and one musician. Genre-wise, it looks a lot like a throwback wRPG; like something from the late 1980s or early 1990s. Despite the resurgence of the wRPG over the past few years, you still don’t see games in this particular mold much anymore:

Here’s the feature list:

*Choose to be a soldier, slave, or scribe. Overcome challenges with your unique skills.

*Explore the intricately designed pyramid. Each chamber is packed with foes, puzzles, traps, treasures, and other interesting stuff.

*Develop your character however you want with an unusual but intuitive advancement system.

*Use your brawn, wits, and agility stats to kick down doors, bend bars, hack computers, haggle with merchants, dodge traps, scale walls, and more.

*Find numerous solutions to every problem. Explore multiple paths through the pyramid. Experience alternate endings. Fight optional bosses. Discover hidden treasures.

*Experience a unique vision of the future. In the spacefaring future, the Egyptian empire has risen again. The Prime Pharaoh’s mutant armies oppress mankind…

Void Pyramid is entirely free. You can download it for Windows or Mac direct from the developer, for Android from Google Play, or for OUYA right here.

    For some reason, my brain keeps saying, “He’s a gun-toting explorer in search of criminals from an Egyptian spacefaring empire. She’s a doomed princess with a sassy attitude who can read minds. Together, they fight crime!”
