Oceanhorn - New Zelda-inspired title from developers of Death Rally!

UPDATE: Here is first Secret Gameplay video Part 1!

Dear Toucharcade audience, it is my pleasure to announce you first that we Cornfox & Bros. are working on new adventure title called Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas!

First concepts and game design drafts of Oceanhorn was made in the beginning of 2010, right after we established our company. But instead of Oceanhorn, we began the development of Death Rally later that spring together with Mountain Sheep. One and a half years and eight Death Rally updates later - we are ready to go back for an adventure!

You can follow up the development of Oceanhorn from our dedicated blog: oceanhorn.blogspot.com, but most of the content (and more) will be updated to this thread as well.

Here are the contents of the first blog post!

Development of Oceanhorn began from our love towards old console adventure games, where instead of looting dungeons and grinding XP you explored the world and solved puzzles and followed dusty maps to find treasures from the remains of old temples and castles. We want to deliver that experience, where instead of taking care of boring chores you can have an adventure of your lifetime in a highly detailed fantasy land.

Oceanhorn is an ancient sea monster that terrorizes the World of Uncharted Seas. The game puts you in the boots of a nameless hero who, in order to save his sister, must slay this monster for good. In this game, the world is open for exploration by foot or by boat, but beware - the sea monster can attack at any time and ill-prepared travelers will meet their early demise.

Equip your boat with new sails, hulls or even with forgotten technology like Smog Engine to outwit Oceanhorn in battle. Roam the lands and explore ancient ruins to find the legendary Coral Harpoon. Learn the history of the Uncharted Seas. What happened to the civilization whose cities now lay in ruins?

Experience the adventure in 2012! More info coming soon!

Your friendly neighbourhood Cornfox
