Retro-Inspired Horror Game “Lichenvale” Coming to Steam in April 2023; Demo Available Now

As part of Steam Next Fest, solo game developer Filip Zemljak has released a free demo for his very first independent outing, Lichenvale.

Inspired by classic first-person games from the 90’s such as Hexen and Quake, Lichenvale is very much a dark fantasy adventure featuring swords, spells, and a few modern twists borrowed from games like Dark Souls and Doom: Eternal.

and this new demo has the initial levels reworked to cut on the backtracking and provide a more seamless combat experience.

Lichenvale is expected to release in April 2023. The free demo includes a handful of the first few environments and will be playable until 10 October as part of Steam Next Fest.
