Exorcism - gothic dual-stick Action-RPG

Hi everyone, our team is proud to announce our new project in development - it called Exorcism.

Exorcism is an action game in abandoned genre "dual-stick shooter" with gothic atmosphere, a lot of magic, loot, upgrades and all of it with nice 3D graphics, and most importantly: very fun gameplay.

The game takes place in gothic fantasy world where dark creatures terrorizes peaceful people. It is a dawn of dark age - time when people can't live their usual lives.
To protect those people there are special forces called Exorcists - and you play as one of them: the girl named Dana. She uses her crossbows and magic skills to wipe out this unholy mess.
Her goal is not only to defeat those undead enemies but destroy root of the problem - you should help her to find who is behind this terror.

Gameplay is a very straightforward yet challenging and addictive. You have to destroy waves of enemies and keep you from injures in the same time.
This core gameplay combined with heavy RPG elements so you also will:
* level your character up,
* upgrade your weapon,
* participate in quests
* learn and use magic skills
and collect loot.
And it's actually quite fun!

About the developer team:
Actually there are only two of us and we create this game in our spare time. But we have several years of experience in game development.
So despite lack of working hours we invest in the project we ensure you we'll do our best to make this game nice and fun. (Probably it'll push release date to the later time).
The game is in very early stage of development, but we'll keep you updated.
Also to whom it may concern: we use Unity engine=)

The game is going to be released on iOS (iPod5 and above) and Android platforms when it's done. Also we may be release it on PC/Mac/Linux later on.

Price will be free and the game will monetized with IAPs, but all items will be available through gameplay without any real money spend.
(Also we're looking for a publisher and modern publishers are not happy with flat price nowadays).

Gothic horror? Color me interested.
Publisher? Did you consider contacting Crescent Moon Games? They still do non-f2p flat-price releases. And what I've seen from them so far all looks good.
The main character looks okay, aside from my usual gripe: where is the realistic armor? With "dark creatures terrorising peaceful people" you don't want to run around in your slacks or get caught in only your undies

Hi everyone

First of all: It's unexpected to see any comment on first post - usually no one cares.=)

Regarding the armor: yeah we understand this is not the most useful piece of armor, but most users like it that way. And also we'll add more armored armor in future.
Let's say it's for mobility purposes=)

About the TPS: We actually had a prototype but it seems it adds a lot to work and no so much to fun. Our goal for now is create rather simple yet fun game. So we try keep design as simple as possible (but no more). Maybe in sequel.

The whole F2P thing: it's still a point of consideration. But it's much more easier to switch from F2P design to P2P than vice versa - so we'll keep it that way for now.

Wanted to mention about gothic style - it's not exactly gothic like on Wikipedia, or gothic music - but our interpretation of it. Just warn you so you can keep your expectations accordingly=).

And thank you for your feedback - all of you.
