A New Take on Arthurian Legend
I think it’s safe to say that mixing and matching makes things more fun. That goes double for genres that get thrown together and ground up into a delicious smoothie of gaming. That’s what Versus Evil is sharing today. It’s called The Hand of Merlin. It mixes up Arthurian legend with science fiction and horror, and just a touch of the apocalypse.
The Hand of Merlin is being developed by Room-C Games in cooperation with Croteam, and it looks promising. It’s a rogue-lite RPG with lots of tactical fun. It has you control one of three mortal warriors on a journey from Albion to Jerusalem, all while beset by otherworldly threats. The game itself was revealed during the MIX yesterday. Today, it has a nifty trailer to watch, featuring Mateus “Mat” Farias, the Game Designer. He spends a couple minutes going into detail about the mechanics found in the game.
For those interested, The Hand of Merlin is slated to come to Steam Early Access in May. Be sure to check out the trailer below and stay tuned to HPP for more news about this ambitious mashup of genres!
