Spooky Puzzle Adventure “NecroBoy Path To Evilship” Arrives on Steam This Halloween
Publisher Gravity Game Arise has announced that puzzle adventure NecroBoy Path To Evilship is coming to Steam PC just in time for Halloween, 31 October.
Developed by a (sort of) one-man creative team at Chillin’ Wolf (aka Ulysse Frediere), NecroBoy Path to Evilship is a described as a “silly, spooky, and logically stupefying puzzle adventure game” starring an ambitious necromancer in search of dark power.
Here’s the official breakdown of NecroBoy Path to Evilship from Gravity Games Arise, followed by the latest trailer:
Developed by the one man Chillin’ Wolf team of Ulysse Frediere, with a little help for music from Nicolas “Kerch” Kerbourc’h and art from Arthur Jacob-Cavarec, is the eerie and funny story of Necroby, a lonely, gifted, megalomaniacal but not too bright and rather dramatic necromancer ostracized from birth due to his powers and his quest gain the powers of the infamous NecroMan and use those powers to rule over those that ignored and shunned him…now if he could only figure out the how and then what…
To gain these momentous powers, players must guide NecroBoy to delve into the treacherous tomb of the late NecroMan. Within the labyrinth tomb, players will summon the souls of the departed to become NecroBoy’s minions. Order your minions to perform various actions, such as flipping switches, pushing blocks, moving platforms, and many more gimmicks to solve all the puzzles each level holds to proceed to the next level.
Beware, because as you proceed, your journey will become ever perilous and frustrating as the stages and puzzles become larger and far more difficult. Traps, fire, bosses and frustration await players. The answers are not always straight forward and require a good amount of logical thinking and look out for clues.
Even in the dark there is still hope. Pay close attention to the early stages as NecroBoy unlocks his various powers that are essential to clearing puzzles and learning how best to command your minions. Our awkward hero is guided by his most loyal albeit reluctant minion, Lackey, a slightly different minion who possesses greater intellect. As they explore even deeper the pair grow closer as Lackey at least attempts to impart wisdom and guidance upon his master, but Lackey himself may hold a secret of his own.
What would a dungeon be without secrets as well? Secret areas, and a great mystery. The perfect combination for a Halloween romp! Can you reach the deep dark depths of the dungeon? Can you clear the secret rooms? And just how fast are you? NecroBoy is bound to have players laughing and snickering like crazy while crying and screaming in frustration. A true test of determination, are you ready to be come the next lord of Necromancers?
What is Halloween without some games with at lot of tricks and treats and hearty evil laughs?
Lastly just in time for Halloween, by going to the options menu and clicking the pumpkin icon, players can turn on a special Halloween skin NecroBoy character skin.
NecroBoy Path To Evilship is scheduled to release on Halloween, 31 October via Steam PC. If you jump in early, there will be a special 20% discount for the first week following release (31 October – 7 November).
