Dive into bizarre world of Smintheus and take a role of young craftsman Gerald who tries his best to survive the chase lead by his former friend - Lanky the cat. It seems like nothing is capable of stopping this mad and frantic cat, leaving escape as only option for survival.

But even that won't last forever - only hope is to rely on ones wits. Help Gerald survive the chase and lead him to the freedom!

Gerald the mouse, a young craftsman, was forced to leave his home village due to danger emanating from the local dweller, Lanky the cat. Gerald and Lanky used to be friends, but that quickly ended after something radically changed Lanky. The cat simply became obsessed with destroying the poor mouse without giving any explanations for his hateful desire. With failed attempts to fight the cat there was nothing left to do for Gerald but to run away for his life.

Smintheus finally sees the light! Yahoooo!!!

It's been a long journey, nearly 6 years full of sweat, blood and tears, but here we are - bringing a fine product with high quality polishing an indie game developer could afford. If you like action-adventure games like "The Legend of Zelda", but wish experience the challenge of puzzle genre then this game is for you - especially for you, if you are a 90s retro game aficionado. Smintheus is a true new retro-like game with a spirit of oldies mixed with modern accessibility.

Without doubt, made with love!

Gei it on steam now: Smintheus On Steam!

So, what's next? Game development doesn't end with release - there are couple of plans that needs to be addressed. Here are some that concerns Steam release:

  • Translate game to as many languages as possible
  • Extend soundtrack, Ideally, each level has its own tune.
  • Port to Mac
  • Modding support
