10tons’ necromancer simulator Undead Horde Early Access out on Mar 6th – new trailer released

10tons has announced the Steam early access release date for Undead Horde is March 6th 2019. Undead Horde is a “necromancer simulator” which combines elements from action RPG and RTS games into a fun and fresh undead package.

The main hook of Undead Horde is that the Necromancer can re-animate almost any dead creature he encounters. His army comes from multiple sources including the corpses in the battlefield, graves, and ultimately summoning statues. Statues must be unlocked before they can be used. The only limiting factor is the command capacity of the Necromancer. The command capacity can be increased in various ways.    

Undead Horde is a dream come true for many of us as it combines elements from our favorite games including Diablo, Overlord, and Pikmin. We’ve also studied the cancelled game Nekro a bit for inspiration. Some streamers have even called the game “dark pikmin”.

The game is set in a fantasy world where the living have driven the undead into exile and the main protagonist Orcen the Necromancer was imprisoned in a magical urn by the paladins. The story starts as a cavalier chicken accidentally breaks the urn and releases the prisoner. Once free, Orcen needs to raise the dead to form his army and take back the world from the paladins and the living.

Here’s some more necromantic material :

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
