Kickstarter is LIVE !
Brace yourself, the demo is coming!
So what’s new?


You can be blessed… and get physically/mentally ill,



A huge work has been done about the integration and balance of the illnesses/curses and blessings. The Temple will give you nightmares and mental conditions… But if your prowesses are witnessed your God might want to give a hand, who knows?


You can save your progress!
Pray at some gate and reach a specific point from the Filthblood Shelter (the HUB) !



Indeed Dark Devotion is also influenced by rogue-likes. It roughly means that each time you die: back to square one! But if you prayed first at some holy gate found in the deeps of the Temple, you’ll be able to reach this location directly from the Shelter. Genius!


About saving, one more thing:
If you’re lucky enough you might find this statue:



Praise Basilius the Great!


Choose your own gear!



Killing bosses will unlock new equipment in the HUB that you can choose from this altar. So each time you come back to the Filthblood Shelter you’ll be able to do a new run with different right/left hands depending on the enemies you’re facing and/or your preferences!



We’re still implementing little features that you will discover yourself while playing the demo, you should know that we’re more motivated than ever and nearly done with this first world.
We’re hoping that you are as excited as we are!
Indeed, creating the game is a thing but testing and balancing it is another my friend. And this is what we’re doing right now, hardcore testing to polish it to offer you the best experience we can give.



We hope that we'll completely be done with the first world by the end of may.


Here is a quick gameplay video to sum up some new things :

What’s coming next then?

The toughest work has been done, (Core gameplay, prog/sounds/animations world 1, now balancing) like we said in the previous update we’ll focus on creating the other environments (Starting by the second world) which means: new places, bosses, monsters, NPCs, equipment, stories, texts and secrets to discover..!

Quick preview of the horrors you might face in next worlds :



The Dark Devotion demo will be available during our Kickstarter campaign which will be launched in a few weeks, stay tuned!

This is a crucial moment for our team and the future of Dark Devotion. Thank you for following and supporting us guys, this is really helpful. We need you to keep things going.

Lots of Love from the Hibernian Workshop team.
(And we’re sorry if there’s typos, we’re French.)

Description
Release date: Early 2018
Trapped in a dark and gloomy temple, find your inner strength and courage to brave its dangers. Show your devotion!


Dark Devotion invites you in a rich and particular universe. You will go through more and more confrontations. If you succeed, don't rejoice too quickly because each step will bring you closer to darkest revelations.


Features
  • Take part into rageous and bloody fights in which your opponents won't rest.

  • You can't go back. Each game will bring you through differents paths and new secrets to discover. Be careful, or you will easily get lost.

  • A strong RPG influence, you will have the chance to loot a lot of differents weapons, armours and relics with statistics that will allow you to create your own build for your unlucky character.
    You will also be able to custom your equipement with mystical runes.

  • Discover the complex story behind this temple through the differents NPCs, ennemies and texts of past travellers lost in this place.

  • Pray for your safety, killing ennemis will rise your amount of devotion that will be necessary to open doors, chests. Spend it with parcimony.

  • Be blessed or cursed, the temple can be a place of vertue for those who deserve it, but also a place of despair and sickness if you're blind to the environnement. Simple damages can become much worse if you delay its healing. A badly maintained equipement can cause you much more trouble than you think.

Story

As far as we can remember, brainwashed since our birth, our only goal has always been the temple.
It is a place of darkness and despair where nobody did ever come back. Our God commands us to overcome this shrine to show our devotion.

Inquisition is reigning, and everyone against them are brought to the temple.
Children have been taken away from their parents and educated to become templars. They are warriors, trained to kill and succesfully lead their crusade with devotion as their only weapon.

Templars usually go to fight in team, except for one girl. Facing dangers and atrocities, she can only count on her own faith to get out of this place alive. You are that woman, that hero.


Team and flow

Our team, grouped under the name of Hibernian Workshop, is composed by three passionated gamers living in France.
We are ponctually helped by two other people, a concept artist and a pixel artist (working on a cinematic).

The game is under developement since almost a year, with a long phase of research.
This phase allowed us to define more deeply, with the experience gained, the storyline, the design and mechanics of the game.

All of our features now ready, we will accelerate the developement to create a game that we hope you'll like as much as we loved creating it. We expect a final release early 2018.
