Today developer Rat Tower has released a new trailer of its upcoming dungeon-crawling RPG Monomyth.
The trailer has been launched to advertise the upcoming debut on Kickstarter. The game has been in development for quite a while by a solo developer, but the developers see the crowdfunding platform as a way to gather funding to recoup increasing development costs as release approaches.
The game is scheduled to launch in Q2 2022 and it already has a Steam page for your wishlisting pleasure.
You can check out the trailer below, and read an official description.
As the sun sets on the empires of mankind and civilization crumbles under great storms ravaging the world’s surface, the people of Ariath retreat to the underground.
Amidst the chaos of this dying world your father, King Ferodin the Third sent an expedition to the fallen fortress city of Lysandria.
It is said, that within the ruins of the fortress lies the primeval seed – a divine gift that may calm the gods’ anger and put an end to the roaring thunder in the sky.
Spearheaded by your own brother, the expedition hoped to retrieve the sacred object but was never heard of again.
Against your father’s wish, you decide to travel to Lysandria yourself.
Find your brother and retrieve the divine gift, but beware: The ancient fortress is not as deserted as it seems…
