EDGAR is a 2D adventure platformer starring the father of Gothic poetry, Edgar Allan Poe. Fight monsters and get loot as you chase Jack the Ripper through an alternate version of Victorian London. EDGAR is currently being developed in Unity3D by a small of team of developers. The goal of EDGAR is to create a 2D lootfest with heavy influences from Gothic literature, while combining it with imaginative gameplay and quirky customization. Bram Stoker's Dracula, and over a dozen other literary classics will have deep-rooted places within the plot of EDGAR, giving players a chance to get a "feel" for the Victorian era, even when the game is presented in a fantastical manner.

It's been roughly one year since we took the first steps to bring this game to life, and so this Halloween we decided to create a little teaser showing some of the Foes Poe will face on his journey, including bats, spider brains, and more.

All the music is original and scored exclusively for the game by our talented composer.

Enjoy!

Heres a tip, on the loot make sure that weapons aren't just tiered. You need to give the players a wide variety of choices. Do we want the two swords that are fairly weak alone, but good together, and how does that compair to a slow gun that the bullets explode on impact? Tiering the weapons ends up with Does stat A beat stat B

The tiers are going to be more of a wide grouping. For example, weapons within the lowest tier might do anywhere between 1 and 50 damage. You will still need to compare individual weapons, especially when it comes to extra buffs and bonuses.

Hey there! We had to migrate from one Unity plugin to another, which means there wont be new footage incoming until we get everything up and running with this new tool. If you want to use the video footage we've already released however, I would love to help get you the file in whichever way is best for you.
