Hey there everyone. Here at Bloodshadow Games we are currently developing Urizen ZERO The Serpents Fang, a prequel to Urizen Shadows of the Cold. We currently have an incredible storyline written by Lead Designer, Writer Derek Thomas K. In this episode we convey the story of how our villain Draconan became a 'villain' and how the whole war for Urizen began. We plan to implement different fighting moves, along with multiple weapons, and a powerup/weapon/etc. menu. The game will not be a head bopper but more of sword swipe, platformer, similar to that of Castlevania except without the whip. It will include a cast of 3 warriors and of course will be a throwback to pixel art. The release date is to be decided. I plan to release it on Steam only. Remember guys and gals this is "retro at an Epic Level". We'll keep you posted.

Urizen Update 11/11/2017


Hello Everyone,

As all you Urizen followers may know, Urizen is technically just a one man group. While I got someone to help me with storyline and other business matters, it is only one guy who creates all the graphics, level design, and everything but the final setup for the music. That is still much for just one guy to handle...but still there is a chance it might be released come Christmas 2017, if not we'll then early 2018. Here are some of the things I've been working on..

  • I had mentioned before that the stage map had to be rerouted, and so it was done. There are now three completely different routes. The main map has been split up into three parts per screen. The art looks pretty slick though.

  • Then there is the option of adding multiple endings which is a most probable no.
  • Romus the new spartan blue warrior bunny has been added. Romus throws spears and fireballs, he also has a sword and shield for combat.


  • I'm also in the middle of adding another boss for the Coldwaters level hes going to resemble an upright walking polar lion, yeah, polar lion. Some other additions have and are also taking place.


  • Some warriors, not all, have been finalized.

  • And finally I think now that the system allows for a XBOX ONE export it might just be added to the XBOX ONE when done.
  • The intro has been retouched...

Remember People I promise nothing but good retro fun.
What to expect: a. 3 Attacks for example 2 Sword different Slashes and 1 Mega Punch
b. 3 different enabled projectiles when holding RB button for example holding RB and pressing A shoots a fireball, holding RB and pressing B shoots an arrow, holding RB and pressing X shoots a thunderbolt.
c. Run button for bigger jumps, also holding run and pressing A,B or X may for example tackle, run and kick, or do a running spear to the enemy.
d. Multiple Cutscene Transition Stills Like those found in Ninja Gaiden.
e. A tremendous storyline written by Derek Killion.
f. 3 warriors to choose from with multiple costumes each.
g. Hidden Secrets
h. Artistic Detail in pixel mind I will not use too many high render programs for the sake of that retro feel.
i. Keyboard and Joystick Compatibility
j. More realistic styled battle scenarios

What not to expect: a. 3D
b. a 30 dollar indie game
c. fancy gimmicky gameplay
d. head bopping

Of course I will add more to this list as soon as it becomes apparent that it can be incorporated into the game. I'll try to keep the price under $8.00.
