Brazil-based game developer Massive Work Studio has announced at PAX East 2018 a new and terrifying space-horror RPG title known as DOLMEN.
What is DOLMEN?
In DOLMEN, you awake below the surface of the hostile alien planet known as Revion Prime. With no answers as to how you got there, or what happened to your crew, it is up to you to discover the secrets that the planet holds. Prepare to face nightmarish creatures along the way as you practice the two keys to survival: adaptation and exploration. Do you have what it takes to survive?
“DOLMEN has been a true labor of love over the last year, but we need your support to help us cross the finish line and finally release the game next year,” said Pedro Bastos, Producer at Massive Work Studio. “We’d like to thank everyone in advance for their contributions and role in bringing DOLMEN to life — it truly means a lot to us. If you’re attending PAX East 2018, we hope you’ll stop by our booth to check out the game for yourself!”
DOLMEN’s Key Features
- Explore a Devastated, Darkly Beautiful Planet: Revion Prime is an alien world, with environments inspired by the work of macabre artists like H.R. Giger and H.P. Lovecraft, that challenges you to unearth its dark history by connecting fragments of the past.
- Engage in Fast-Paced Dynamic Combat: Combat is intense and heavily based on timing, mixing melee-based attacks, Over-the-Shoulder (OTS) perspective long-range shooting and the use of defensive manoeuvres such as dodging and blocking.
- Adapt or Perish; Craft to Survive: Mankind, so we believe, has become a prevalent species due to its ability to endure and adapt to inhospitable environments. Build up your skills and scavenge what little resources are available to create items and customize your equipment. You’re going to need anything you can find to live to see another day.
A demo is available to those who pledge on Kickstarter as well as various backer rewards including access to Discord, digital comics, printed artbook, A3 posters, and more.
The game will be available on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC in 2019, so there’s still some time to wait. Nintendo Switch users can also expect a version coming to their platform should the stretch goal be met.
