Kickstarter success!
Release date: July 2016
A House of Many Doors is a 2D exploration RPG coming to PC in July next year, developed by one-man indie studio Pixel Trickery with glorious art by Catherine Unger. This will be a game with narrative depth, compelling characters, and branching, nonlinear storylines.


- A rag-tag crew of dozens of characters with quests to complete and secrets to uncover
- A vast setting, crammed with bizarre civilizations, cities, and ruins
- Stories and lore galore
- A real-time-with-pause combat system
- Procedurally-generated poetry

In A House of Many Doors you are a poet, journalist and spy, exploring the House – a vast parasite dimension that steals from other worlds. You explore the House in a clanking train with mechanical legs, discovering bizarre civilizations and assembling a dysfunctional crew.

I want you to feel like a particular type of 19th-century polymath - a Richard Francis Burton or a Gertrude Bell. An absurd figure with absurd talents who propels themselves confidently into absurdly terrifying situations.

The poems you write are based on the experiences you have in-game. The poems are procedurally-generated, and over time you will build up a proud canon of stirring titles: "The Troglodyte Vomiting of the Mirrors," "An Elegy on the Reluctant Hell of Grief," "Ode to the Strangling Toad." Your poems and travelogues are your route to fame and fortune!

It's really important to me that this game goes on Steam. Unless the game fails the Kickstarter, or is a total commercial failure, I plan to continue to add new rooms and stories to the House as new ideas come to me. Steam's flexible update system makes it the absolute best platform to do this.

It's important to note that the game you play on release will be a complete game! But new content will also constantly be added for free. New places to discover. New characters. Established content will be deepened. More and more branches will be added to existing storylines.

By throwing me a "Yes" now, you could have access to a game that will continue growing for years to come.

The Game looks great, but I think you need to do a little art update.

Parece divertido, mas não ira ter legendas em portugues?
