3DS owners are in luck. A new first-person dungeon crawler was announced by independent developer Cinemax (not to be confused by the risqué TV channel). Known as The Keep, this game will be available during the summer on the Nintendo eShop. The full content of the press release is found below.
Prague, 24th of February 2014 – Cinemax, an independent studio with more than 40 titles published so far, today officially announced The Keep, an old-school dungeon first person crawler with real-time combat for the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system. The Keep will be available in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS this summer.
The idea behind The Keep is very simple: to bring the essence and dark atmosphere of RPGs from the past to a new platform with touch screen based controls for newcomers and fans of the genre alike.
In The Keep, you will embark on a quest to explore caves and mines filled with monsters to slain and puzzles to solve underneath and surrounding tower of evil sorcerer. It won’t be easy, you will die. A lot!
The Keep is in development for more than 15 months and there is a simple reason for it. Cinemax are trying to pour all their love for old-school games into the game and proving themselves that they were wrong saying after the release of the Inquisitor: “We will never ever make a RPG game ever again!”
Title: The Keep
Platform: Nintendo 3DS
Release date: Summer 2014
Age Rating: 12+
