Description
Release date: Late 2015
About
Courier of the Crypts is a 2D action adventure game where you have to survive as a courier on his first errand to the guardian of the crypts. Your main tool to achieve your mission is a magic torch which you use to illuminate your path, defend from evil spirits and solve puzzles.

--- PRE-ORDER TODAY ---[www.courierofthecrypts.com]
Support the development by pre-ordering the game and gain extra perks as an early supporter. Every tier grants your name written in the credits as well as Steam key and DRM Free copy of the game when available.

The Magic Torch
The main aspect of the game is your magic torch. The environment will react to its flames in different ways so it will be common for you to toggle the flame on and off throughout the game. Some enemies will leave you alone while others will try to extinguish the torch. It's up to you to learn all about them and use that knowledge to your advantage. You can lure some enemies into traps or sneak past them. Will you let Dark Moths drink your light or attack you? There are also riddles in the dark that only the magic flame reveals. Enemies and puzzles should not be your main worry though. You must keep your torch filled with magic flame all the time otherwise dark spirits will come to get you. Use your torch flame wisely and look after the flame.

Features
  • Ambiental and carefully hand-crafted maps full of puzzles and secrets.
  • Magic torch - light your path, scare off the enemies, solve puzzles....
  • Deadly traps and rich treasures
  • Simple yet appealing story with a twist.
  • Beautiful pixelated graphics.
  • Music and visuals for perfect ominous ambient.
  • Crypt map with secret maps to unlock (similar to Super Mario World world map)
  • Meet the spirits and buy some upgrades.
  • Perfection system.
  • Challenging achievements.
  • Full controller support.

@Tigris Games:
Yay, I'm glad you like the atmosphere because there was a lot of work behind that to get it feel right. Thanks a lot for the suggestion, I'll implement that for sure. Joystick vibrations are already in the game - eathquakes, explosions, heavy doors opening, mechanisms etc. and I'll add some vibrations to the torch as well because that would be a really good indicator that you must get more flame soon. Thanks a lot ^_^

@TCGJin: Yeah, too bad but I'm moving forward nontheless. Also, the date for the Indiegogo wasn't the best. Anyway, I'm releasing the game on Steam Early Access next month so it's a big step forward ;) Thanks for the best wishes!

The light in the game looks great. Just the right atmosphere. You are the developer but I have a suggestion. When the light goes out, make the joystick vibrate :) Maybe promote that feature in your next trailer. No other game does it.

Keep working hard man, Shame that the indie go go hasn't work kickstarting games has gotten much harder after much failure. I do wish you the best of luck and can't wait to keep hearing updates on this.

With Indiegogo campaign fail I'll be revealing my future plans soon - how will the game be developed from here on, my situation and so on. Stay tunned and thanks again!
