Description
Release date: Coming soon to Steam, available now at other outlets- see Indie DB page for further details!
Enter The Bounty.

It's a retro-inspired competitive RPG, with an East meets West approach, deviously combined with an arcade high score sensibility. An experience that will challenge your wits as you push to survive, uncover a multitude of secrets, and earn the high score.

Interact with players around the world- share your scores, and find out who is the best in official high score and specialized competitions.

The Bounty is unapologetically old school. No level grinding. No place to hide. Death is permanent. Even saving your game subtracts from your score. Your victory is in your own hands. Develop your own strategies, power your character the way you want to, and eventually conquer the game... if you can.

Remember- there is a secret, a trap, or a monster at every turn. Even some of the levels, creatures and treasures may not stay the same from play to play. Can you survive The Bounty?

Thank you! Be sure to try out the free Shareware version at http://ludicrousda3ve.itch.io/the-bounty-shareware-edition. It's the full first episode, and gives a good taste of the game's odd mix of styles.

Smer4, Zombie Race looks crazy, btw!

I have put -hours- into this game and it never stops being fun! It is a brutal, heartless challenge that will crush your quivering soul. I hesitate to use the oft-trod "It's like Dark Souls but _" motif, but honestly it's like Dark Souls and Dragon Quest had a twisted, evil baby born with a straight razor in each hand and singing a Pantera song on its way out of the womb.

That's the gist of it, Deadman Talking! It's basically an RPG- puzzles, battles, riddles, etc- with tropes like experience and gold stripped down, replaced with a focused, arcadey high score approach.

"it's an RPG with a hi score!" that's you, that's what you're saying.
