Ericona run 638 x 182


"Skelethrone: The Prey" is a free prequel to the main game, setting the stage for the events that will unfold throughout Skelethrone's main campaign.

The story takes place a few decades before the events of the game's main campaign. Assume the role of Derek Ericona, a lord who escaped the persecution is now trying to get to the borders of the neighboring kingdom to resist the tyranny of Queen Aurora, but he is being chased and faces an uphill battle. Prepare all your skills to overcome all the obstacles and difficulties prepared for our hero. And now the hunt is on!

You're in for a great adventure inspired by games like Castlevania and Dark Souls. Bloodthirsty monsters, divine creatures and epic boss battles. The game’s story is shaped by choices that will define your journey.

PROLOGUE KEY FEATURES:

  • Metroidvania - Unlock unique upgrades for movement and combat to expand the world. Maintaining the game's progression requires you to use different relics, items and abilities.
  • Challenging bosses - Test your skills against multiple bosses and other creatures from the Dark Ages. The game will constantly test your patience as you face challenging battles that require their own unique approach..
  • Exploration - The game features a huge world represented by a variety of hand-crafted levels.

To the Sun-city that hides in the labyrinthine of an ancient tomb where an unspeakable evil lingers, long forgotten by mankind.
  • Non-linear exploration – Play through levels and bosses, discover side areas with more secrets and enemies to defeat.

Greetings, friends!

Welcome to "Lovecraftian Days" on Steam!

Skelethrone 1920x1080

First of all, we would like to thank all of you who have played SKELETHRONE: THE PREY and left your feedback.

In order to prevent you from getting bored, we would like to invite you to play the demo version of Skelethrone: The Chronicles of Ericona if you haven't already played it at previous festivals. The demo is available on the game page.

The events of the demo unfold right after the end of THE PREY. New bosses, weapons, enemies and characters are waiting for you. Leveling up is now extremely important, as the main character in the story (SPOILER: dies at the end of the prologue, but is reborn again, albeit losing all his skills.)

It's worth noting that all the changes made (improved animations, impact, etc.) from THE PREY have not been carried over into this demo, as it's technically difficult at the moment and would take too long to implement.

Currently, all efforts are concentrated on improving and finalizing the main game version based on community feedback.

This demo still has a lot to offer, so I hope you enjoy it.

It is highly recommended that you play Skelethrone: The Prey before tackling the demo.
