“The Book of Renatus” is a 2D mobile action game that combines elements of such genres as “slasher” and “music”. It is currently being developed by a small indie studio called “My Grandma Is a Hacker” consisting of just two people: a programmer and a designer. The core gameplay idea consists in merciless killing of tons of various mobs to the rhythm of a music track that you put on. The game adjusts its pace according to your music’s tempo semi-automatically. Use your sense of rhythm to swipe at the right moment to kill the enemies. The “Book of Renatus” also features an intriguing story written in the diary of the main character.

Which one is even alive?!?

• A mixture of cold-blooded action synchronized with music creates a unique gameplay model;
• control system based exclusively on swipes helps you feel the vibe and intuitively control Renatus, the main character;
• no HUD elements will distract you from immersing into the game;
• locations are set in a dark fantasy world that resembles the Age of Renaissance;
• an intriguing story written in a form of a diary will guide you through the game;
• you will be able to upload your own tracks and enjoy the action as you feel best;
• the game contains 17 locations and dozens of unique enemies.

Smile for the camera

“The Book of Renatus” tells us a story of a desperate old man who used to be a great warrior but is only a shadow of himself now. A mystical apparition suggests a seemingly harmless trade and gives Renatus a second life. But at what cost?
