Last year, Altari Games launched a Kickstarter to develop Lost Ruins – a new 2D survival action game aiming for major platforms like Nintendo Switch. Following the huge success of that crowdfunding campaign, we can now confirm that the game will emerge for Switch fans later this year!
Dangen Entertainment has announced that it will be handling publishing duties for the title, with a Switch release set for Q4 2021. As reported previously, the adventure will see players in the shoes of a young school girl who finds herself lost in a strange realm, with no choice but to fight off bizarre monstrosities with various weapons, tools, and magic!
We’ll report back as we hear more. In the meantime, check out a new trailer below:
A young girl wakes up in a dimly lit dungeon without any of her memories. Surrounded by horrible, bloodthirsty monsters, she is rescued by a mysterious magician, Beatrice. With the help of Beatrice, the girl goes on a perilous journey to find answers and unlock the secrets of the Lost Ruins.
- Engage in Combat – Combat in Lost Ruins is in real time, and can be both fast and methodical. Slash away at enemies up close, burn them to a crisp with magic, or fire a bow from afar and even deflect their projectiles back at them. Players must arm themselves with a variety of swords, axes and other assorted medieval weaponry, and hack monsters to pieces.
- Master Spells – For those with an affinity for magic, Lost Ruins allows players to cast a wide variety of spells through wands, tonics, and scrolls. Electrify monsters in water, freeze bosses, or heal yourself when in danger. Players can assign slots and choose what works best for their playstyle and approach.
- Choose Your Equipment – The world of Lost Ruins is a dangerous one and being armed to the teeth with awesome weaponry is sometimes not enough. Accessories are unique pieces of equipment with all manner of effects—one accessory might protect you against fire, while another might heal you when in water. Finding the right combination of accessories for the right encounter creates strategic options for the adventure.
- Make Use of the Environment – As players explore the depths of Lost Ruin’s dungeons, they will find that everything around them might bring about death—or they can also use the environment to their advantage. Elements within the world react with other elements. Flammable liquids will be set ablaze when in contact with lit lanterns. Ice magic will freeze bodies of water, making them dangerously cold. The more players understand the environment and how to use it to their advantage, the more dangerous they will become.
