Song of the Myrne: What Lies Beneath is an interesting looking mix of adventure and RPG that has graphics similar to "Realm of the Mad God".

It has been out on Linux for over a year now, but has finally made its way onto Steam. Nice to see too, as I had completely forgotten about it, did you?

About the game (From Steam)
What Lies Beneath is a singleplayer action-RPG (with some local only multiplayer modes) in which you'll explore the island of Namok and its deadly dungeon in hope to avenge your... hem... your wife.

Fight evil (and less evil, actually) creatures, loot everything you find, pretend you care while villagers tell you everything about their lives and improve your character as you like in an epic (well... not really actually) quest for revenge!

The adventure awaits! And the final boss too...

Main features
- Not class-based : will you be a valiant knight throwing fireballs everywhere? A fearless mage under two tons of armor? Or an archer that doesn't hesitate before transforming his foes into frogs?
- Content (story, quests, levels) crafted by hand for more of a unique feel
- Fun and original universe with silly characters to speak to
- Part of a series : Myrne (you don't need to have played the other games to understand what's going on)
- Complete crafting system: create potions, armors, etc... mine some ores, pick up some shrooms,...
- Challenge your friends in the local splitscreen multiplayer mode (up to four players on the same keyboard, at the moment. Possibly with gamepad support in the future) in deathmatch or in a Score the Cube game (a football match except with swords, arrows, fireballs... trust me, it's way more fun this way)

I tried the demo some time ago and it was too buggy to be fun. Did anyone get a different impression?

I was playing games with blocky graphics 35 years ago, and the current craze for "retro" looking games (which I sometimes churishly attribute to developer, uh, laziness) doesn't excite me as much as it apparently does other gamers.

That being said, this looks like a game with crap graphics and deep gameplay, which it has in common with my Favorite Game, Dominions4. So... :S:
