April 7, TheoryForm Games – a brand new indie developer created by David “Chesko” Piece, a prominent The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim modder, and author of the Frostfall mod – has announced work on Hazewalker, a Metroidvania game with a dark fantasy setting.
Piece had the following to say about the Unity engine developed game:
“Hazewalker will expand on the action-adventure and exploration gameplay mechanics that define classics such as Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Players will be able to select a male or female character, experience visceral combat and branching storylines, choose and upgrade powerful abilities, improve equipment, and more. The game will combine stunning handcrafted setpieces with procedurally generated content to ensure every playthrough is unique and exciting.”
TheoryForm Games are a planning to seek funding via Kickstarter in October of this year but are also currently accepting donations via Paypal. Prospective backers will have to wait until the Kickstarter campaign is underway for more solid details on a release timetable. However, the developer was able to divulge that the game is currently in simultaneous development for PC, Mac and Linux.
