Pharaonic is an unforgiving sidescrolling Action-RPG by the developers who gave us Ziggurat, and it looks good.
Samsai tried it out on the weekly livestream just now, and he said "it's brutal" and he seemed to be quite interested in it. I have to say even I thought the game looked quite interesting. The visuals seem nice, and the combat looks like it could be challenging and fun, and it works fine on Samsai's AMD GPU with open source drivers.
About the game
Pharaonic is an unforgiving sidescrolling Action-RPG set in Ancient Egypt. Explore a vast kingdom full of dangers and brutal enemies while you find the truth behind Ahmosis I, the Red Pharaoh.
Death awaits at every corner in Egypt, and only the most audacious warriors will have any chance of success. The Pharaoh's army and countless dangerous creatures will stand in your way.
Polish your combat skills to the finest and loot the best gear possible to even have the slightest chance of overcoming this difficult endeavor. Will you opt for lightweight equipment, trusting on your agility to avoid death? Or will you prefer to take the blow and strike back even harder? The decision is entirely yours to make.
