Dying for a challenge, mortal?

Tallowmere is available on Steam, iPhone, iPad, Android, Fire TV, and Wii U (Americas).

Be on your guard for every randomly-placed enemy, elite, boss, and treasure chest you'll come across in Lady Tallowmere's dungeons. Each room gets progressively bigger, harder, and more rewarding the further you go.

The concept is simple yet hard to master:

  • Raise your shield to block enemy attacks.
  • Lower your shield and strike your foes when the timing is right.
  • Jump or move to avoid traps, or use your shield to reduce damage taken.
  • Find the key to advance to the next room.
  • Collect weapons, outfits, headgear, and shields of various rarities to aid your journey.
  • Turn in souls from slain enemies to increase your base stats and passive abilities.
  • Stay alive as long as you can!

Brace yourself as you learn the quirks of each foe, trap, and room type so you can strive for that "one more run" high-score victory! Each dungeon is infinite in length so it's up to you to push your limits; local scoreboards let you track your greatest efforts.

Last year, I joined Nintendo's Wii U development program. It took a few months, but my vision is finally happening:

TALLOWMERE
and her ever-changing dungeons are set to invade the Nintendo eShop on September 1, 2016 for USA, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil!


Dust off your shields and polish your axes. Prepare to see how many rooms you (and your friends!) can clear. Will you reach Room 10? Room 20? Room 60? How far can you make it?

Lady Tallowmere has placed many an enemy to keep you at bay, though she is equally generous with the amount of treasure you can acquire – with stealth-enabling daggers, teleporting katanas, fragile ice wands, explosive rocket launchers, and more – ranging from Basic to Otherworldly.

As her dungeons come in the shape of a 2D platformer, you can expect a lot of jumping, coupled with the occasional explosion and mangled corpse.

Supporting 1-4 players, you'll be able to delve solo with the Wii U GamePad, or additionally connect up to 3 Wii U Pro Controllers and/or Wii Classic Controllers to plunder and loot with your friends with local shared-screen couch co-op. You'll be able to track your greatest efforts with a local high score board, and there's plenty of achievements to strive for.

How much do you plan to make it cost when it's released?

I plan to keep it at $4.99 USD (which is the current price for Alpha access); no desire to change it for Beta or Release. I want to have it stay low and affordable!

I noticed this game was tagged as singleplayer, will you in the future be thinking of adding cooperative play? Or do you plan on sticking with singleplayer only?

Right now it's singleplayer, but I do plan on supporting local co-op (either split-screen or shared screen), and LAN co-op; not sure about Internet co-op though. I will work on these near the end of the Alpha; want to do consumables and character gear/equipment customisation first.

I'm curious to look at splitting the weapons between players so that you get some actual cooperation going... some weapons are certainly better than others depending on the situation.

I'll update the tags once co-op is in!

Would you be up to looking into Evolve (Not the game, the program) it allows LAN co-op even if your on the other side of the continent, its free and would allow people to do online co-op without running your own servers.
