Hail Valve!
  • Touching enemies makes them bleed.
  • +1 healthpoint every second.
  • An evasive roll kills enemies with less than 66% health.
  • Lower health = more strength.
  • More executions = better deal from the trader.
  • Every kill makes you faster.
  • Every hit adds 1% to damage. Resets when being hit.
And many many more.

Finding items or buying them from a trader makes every run different and changes you from a weak cave-painting figure to a death god. You can also permanently upgrade your character stats at a bonfire. There is also now the possibility to zoom out for a few seconds and have a quick overview about your surroundings.

So have patience for a few more months. Still programming, building, balancing and fixing bugs. A new up-to-date trailer will arrive right before the game launches so stay tuned!

Horns up,
Rain

Deadly monsters

"the most innovative and original art style i have seen since my gaming history began, 25 years ago." - Gotchuonlock Greenlight comment

"♥♥♥♥ing cave paintings man .. who would have thought of that ?!?!?!" - sh0ck-wave Greenlight comment

Enjoy the great cave art from South Drakensberg, Rochester to Lascaux brought to life in a video game. All the characters were painted tens of thousands of years ago by our ancestors.

  • Fast, hard, action based gameplay! Watch your stamina bar!
  • Procedurally generated underground labyrinths.
  • Cannibalism! Eat the corpses of your enemies to restore health. But beware, unless you find a special item, you can choke to death.
  • Slaughter grotesque hordes created by the nightmarish imagination of our ancestors.
  • Items and perks of great mystery and power! Gain the edge and crush your enemies!
  • Use collected gold to buy permanent perks for your next life!
  • Level up at bonfires to inflict greater damage, gain maximum health and do faster evasive rolls.
  • Deranged NPC-s who speak in black metal quotes.
  • Savage executions for extra 666 gold!

Combat:
Quoting Alpha Beta Gamer:
Read the full preview - http://www.alphabetagamer.com/stones-of-sorrow-alpha-download/
"The combat system takes a little getting used to as every move (even crawl) has a cooldown period with a count-down at the bottom of the screen indicating when you can use them again. Once you figure it out though, it’s great fun, and adds a tactical element to the fighting."

Story:
Your closest blood brother has betrayed you and tricked you into a cave labyrinth. Restore your honour by brutally crushing his skull with one of the STONES OF SORROW.

Awkward animations aside, the concept is very interesting. It has a lot of potential.
