Zeran's Folly is now available on Steam! Buy Now

For the latest patch notes and more, visit ZeransFolly.com.


Lone is a warrior on a quest to restore his memory. When tragedy starts to follow him like a tail, he wonders if maybe his past is best left buried.

Zeran's Folly is a story-driven action-adventure with fluid melee combat, four unique playable characters, and a twisted sense of humor. Even with murderers and thieves as your best allies, the caustic landscape from the fiery pits of Dorfhole to the darkest depths of Pukamake Grotto will rip you apart if you're not at your best.

Features and stuff:
Four characters! Four of 'em!
Each of the four playable characters has their own move set and special upgrades to make them shine even brighter. Lone is an axe-wielding berserker, rushing into battle and fighting face-to-face. Lydia is a resourceful mage, taking out enemies from afar with her mana bombs. Lisa is a heavy knight with a huge spear, eager to make char siu out of anything that gets in her way. Last but not least, Abby is the mischievous rogue, fast as lightning and twice as deadly. Figuratively speaking, anyway.

Fluid combat!
Get into the groove of things by doing a deadly dance of blades with your enemies. Each character has moves that affect their flow for fast yet tight control. Use the environment to your advantage to secure kills in dazzling and strategic ways.

A huge interconnected world to explore with secrets galore!

There are six daunting dungeons to delve into and a vibrant world to explore, all packed with hidden goodies.

Some Notes on Release

News

Zeran's Folly releases on Steam for PC on October 6, 2017!


After almost four and a half years, Zeran's Folly will finally hit digital store shelves in two weeks. Remember to add it to your wishlist so you're reminded when it releases!

Some stuff about the Steam version:

  • Steam Cloud. All your saves, config settings, and keybinds are saved in the cloud.
  • Achievements. There are 17 achievements in the game with more to come, probably.
  • Reduced memory requirements. You can now play the game if you have a terrible video card by lowering the Texture Quality settings to Bad or Ugly. You should still spend the $40 and get a card with 2 gigs of VRAM, though.
  • Full controller support. If you don't have a controller, buy an XBOX controller on sale or something. Seriously, playing platformers with a keyboard is really dumb.

Some stuff about the game after release:

  • The game will receive FREE support and content patches over time.
  • Two new characters: Anne and Marco
  • New areas: Solar City, Sky Dragon Isle, The Underneath, Splendor, and more
  • All Talents, Rings, and Outfits unlocked
  • New sidequests and minigames

See you there!

If you're talking about Millie 6: no, sorry. If it's any consolation, Millie and Lance appear as side characters in Zeran's Folly and you can talk to them. They say some things about what they've done and what they're up to now.

Later, after doing a sidequest where you play through the Millie 7 levels, you can recruit Anne as an optional playable character.

I've thought about porting Millie 6 using the new engine before. However, less than 100 people ever got to Algor Fortress so I'm not sure it would be worth all the time it would take.
