I am releasing gameplay teaser for Nightkeep. The Game is 2D RPG platformer inspired by Castlevania and old SNES games.
Nightkeep metroidvania RPG TEASER :
The creature hunters, the rangers, the slackers.
That's what people call 'em. There ain't alot of 'em, but their reputation ain't that good. These hunters look for work themselves. Every once in a while, they hear about something. Then, they go after it. They're the kind of people who visit the city, ask for a load of cash, finish the job, and then vanish into the shithole they came from.
A few times, some of these hero wannabes took the money and made a run for it. While the creature they were supposed to slay was still feeding on innocent children. However, even people like them are needed sometimes.
In the event of the Calamity, everyone has their purpose, and making a run for it is as good as committing suicide. It's in times like these, when people stay together, that the hunters are a sword and shield. In the world where people learned to live among monsters, everyone has their place. Whether you're a blacksmith or a hunter, you can't live without each other. Just imagine a hunter without a proper weapon, or a blacksmith running out of bussiness. Both would fall into oblivion.
Thankfully, this will never happen
as long as the danger of the

Calamity, the sun shall not rise.
It is as if a bloody moon stops time
and waits until the last breath of
Some call this the Night of Harvest.
During this time, hoards of monsters
rise from the darkness and destroy
everything in their path. It doesn't
matter how many times they're killed.
One falls to the ground and two
come to take its place.
It's a time when humanity must
vindicate and protect its existence.
Hunters from all around the world
come to meet at a special place to
avert the Calamity. One cycle for
every generation.That place is
Bramecia, a village not far from the
Legend treats it as the epicenter of
all evil. However, the time hasn't
come just yet, so the hunters still
look for work whenever they can.
Among the hunters was Arietta,
known to the rest of the hunters as
Red. She always finished the job she
was paid to for.
This time, something unusual
happened. She wasn't looking for
work, nor did she desire it. Work,
however, found her. A dove flew up to
her with a scroll.
