What would you do to bring back someone you love?

Sword of the Necromancer is a dungeon-crawler action RPG with Rogue-like elements where you can revive your defeated enemies to make them fight alongside you.

Turn your foes into allies using the forbidden powers of the Sword of the Necromancer and help Tama reach the dungeon's depths in order to gain enough power to bring Koko back from the dead.

Gather a little army of monsters, equip yourself with weapons and relics and level up to take on the guardians that stand between you and your objective.

Features:

  • Turn your foes into allies: use the Sword of the Necromancer to revive defeated monsters and make them fight alongside you.
  • Gather weapons and relics: each weapon is different from the others thanks to the procedural  weapon generation system, which gives them various effects and  attributes.
  • Fight with all your might: defeat your enemies using a variety of weapons and objects and dominating the fluid head-to-head battle system.
  • Level up: enhance your character by fighting enemies and upgrade your stats. Improve your summoned monsters by fighting alongside them.
  • Death is not the end: Each try gets you closer to the Necromancer. You will lose all your equipped weapons and monsters, but you will retain half the level you achieved in your run. Also, you can choose to exit the dungeon at some moments, losing all your level progress but maintaining all your  equipment.
  • Learn the truth: Discover Tama and Koko's past as you advance through the dungeon.
  • Local co-op play: Use the Flask of Homunculus to create a copy of the playable character and play with a friend in local co-op game.

About the developers

Sword of the Necromancer is being developed by Grimorio of Games, and produced and published by JanduSoft S.L, both based in Barcelona.

Funded in 2012 and starting as a mobile game developer, now JanduSoft is focused on console development and has published and ported over 15 games for PC and consoles in the last 3 years. JanduSoft has experience with successful Kickstarter campaigns: Caveman Warriors, released in 2017 on all platforms, and Indiecalypse, to be released this very quarter.

Grimorio of Games' previous game, Super Hyperactive Ninja, was also published by JanduSoft and sold over 15.000 copies, which supposed a massive hit for a (back then) two-people team.
