Another Indie announced that the Onerat Games-developed top-down pixel art action game Elden: Path to the Forgotten will launch on Nintendo Switch and PC-via Utomik and Steam on July 9, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions to follow.
Elden: Path to the Forgotten is developed by a single developer since 2015 and features a medieval cosmic setting with an emphasis on storytelling through non-traditional methods. The game is created in a pixelated style and has players battle against enemies and bosses straight out of Lovecraftian lore. Players will be able to use a variety of weapons and spells to combat any situation they approach, and they explore the strange environment.
The game’s approach to non-traditional storytelling uses indirect methods “like reading a book in a language you don’t understand, but with pictures.” This probably means that the story will be up for discussion between players as they explore more of the world and defeat enemies. Elden is a character who is struggling with entering adulthood, and from there, his world becomes a darker place. This ends up forcing him to face off against forgotten evils as well as returning ones.
The developer also released a new gameplay trailer for the release date announcement, which you can watch below:
