CASTLE IN THE DARKNESS is a retro-styled exploration platformer in development by Matt Kap. It is inspired by games like Castlevania, Megaman, Kirby, Metroid, Zelda, I Wanna Be The Guy, Ys and a lot more! It's currently in development for PC and iOS (with a release on other platforms/devices not out of the question) for release in early 2013!
Look forward to a very challenging open-world game that is full of references, secrets, monsters, items, and modes! If you want to follow development or have any suggestions/questions/feedback/interview requests or anything else, you can reach me through twitter, or subscribe to my personal dev blog.
As of 10/19/2012, you can download and try the exclusive (and free) PC demo level, prologue, by clicking on the button below:
Keep in mind that this is NOT part of the main game, it is a separate scenario just to show the game's aesthetics and mechanics. It is more of an action level than an exploration level. Have fun with it, and if you have anything to say, you can reach me at the places I listed above. Also, the .zip file contains a .PDF instruction manual! Make sure you read it!
