Phantom of the Kill

 

The prologue of the new Elysium quest in Phantom of the kill begins with a dream and a bit of mystery. Of course, you’ll have to play it to find out more. Here is the prologue description from the press release:

Elysium Prologue
In your dream, the monsters appeared without warning. Their vicious onslaught devastated the world of futuristic buildings towering in rows. But, just when your own life was in jeopardy, a long-haired maiden wielding a sword came to your rescue.

When you awoke, you found yourself in a field of flowers. The lush, beautiful scene around you was how the world once looked ages ago—the exact opposite of your dream.

You are shocked to discover you can remember nothing of your past, but you have little time to ponder this mystery, for you suddenly find yourself surrounded by strange, grotesque creatures. Frozen in horror and confusion, you are saved by a lone maiden who annihilates the foul beasts.

Her name is Tyrfing, and you can’t help feeling you’ve seen her before, perhaps in a dream…

 

You can find out when future chapters of the new Elysium quest drop by following Phantom of the Kill on all major social media platforms and on its official website:

Elysium Prologue

In your dream, the monsters appeared without warning. Their vicious onslaught devastated the world of futuristic buildings towering in rows. But, just when your own life was in jeopardy, a long-haired maiden wielding a sword came to your rescue.

The world of Phantom of the Kill – Characters

Dulyn (Voiced by: Kana Asumi): This little warrior packs a big punch. She will fly into a rage if anyone says she is small or calls her a fairy. She is extremely fond of chocolate with nuts in it.

Longinus (Voiced by: Kana Hanazawa): This Killer Princess has a timid and cowardly disposition, and is shy and fearful of strangers. She is deeply devout and prays whenever a life is lost, even if it is an enemy’s. Unfortunately, her kindhearted nature often ends up backfiring on her.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
