What's this game about?


Castle in the Darkness is a game designed by Matt Kap, an artist, game developer and musician! As part of Nicalis, he has worked on projects like The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, 1001 Spikes, and more. On his spare time over the last two years, he's worked on Castle in the Darkness, which is a fast-paced adventure platformer, reminiscent of older games like Zelda, Castlevania, Kirby, Megaman and Ys. For his first solo project he wanted to create something that he would have enjoyed as a kid, and thus, Castle In The Darkness came into existence!
